    I think the explanation lacks some factor.
    Why don't everybody's neurons fire in a log-log pattern so they must go and kill somebody in a gruesome manner?

    I like the "Puppets of Biology" term.

    If and when they can accurately predict natural disasters, maybe I'll listen to what these experts have to say about serial killers.

    It seems to me that it's possible to find connections in all sorts of strange places, apply a couple of logarithmic functions to those connections and get a straight line. I sure wouldn't use that as a reason to jump to conclusions.

    All I know is that serial rapists,killers are not wired like us!
    Wouldn't it be great to just look at a person and know they were dangerous.......
    maybe in the future!

    I certainly don't like this idea:

    This to me doesn't seem much different than the last "predictor". The chromosomal thing with men that was pretty much debunked. I can't remember what they called it, but men with an extra chromosome were "proven" to be more dangerous than others.

    That one persisted for awhile, I wonder how long-lived this theory will be?
