1. I did a lit search of the medical journal archives on Dialog and found
no such phenomenon documented there.

2. I'm not going to fly to Australia and hang out with the locals waiting
for a bone to get pointed to see if somebody dies, Gil. I simply asked
for the references you claimed to have.

I have no credibility because I bother to post references? A while
