I'm currently collecting more letters after my name, because I am told these help you exchange your time for things you want.

Edit in response to changes: received more letters after my name, has not yet translated in to better exchange of my time for things I want. With an n of 2, I am probably going to have try for a third set of appending letters.

I have had no formal education in programming. All the programming I do is tangential to what I am trying to do, but I'll be damned if I let segfault stop me.

Thanks to all coders who help me. Come by Bio SE to see if I can help you.

When I say I have had no formal education in programming, I mean I've had absolutely no training in any computer science, and no one I work with has any training. I've used Debian, Biopup, SPSS, and R for years for what ever that's worth (again totally self taught).

Be warned that following any answers I give may lead to infected lemurs coming out of your computer and attacking you at night.

Happy coding.

comment Can Panic disorder induce Atrial Fibrillation and Temporary Cardiac Asystole?
First, if you have research, please cite it (there are sime PubMed hits). I'm not seeing anything linked to, or in Hx for pt201, that cites panic. That temporary asystole can occur is a given, but I'm failing to see a causative argument from panic (I'm not asserting it can't happen). Conversely being conscious and in asystole can often induce temporary panic and stress, but I would like to see evidence that it cause panic disorder. Most would consider stress and panic responses to asystole as appropriate.

comment How can periodic asystole of heart cause cataplaxy with partial asystolic syncope?
This is still a little oddly worded to me. "Partial asystolic syncope" is a term I had never heard before, and also one that doesn't come up in a little review. It seems to show a lack of understanding of what syncope is in general (and why partial doesn't work). Perhaps you are just wondering about cataplaxy, but generally you could be interested in any altered state of consciousness? Asystole, as a noun, will quickly lead to syncope, and there are plenty of resources that can show how this leads to a loss of vasomotor tone. I still think this needs some more clarification and background.

comment Can a human cell live indefinetely in a controlled environment?
Would you count immortalised cells? Would they need to be primary cells taken directly from a body? Primary cells are actually quite difficult to work with/keep alive. Double for stem cells, they differentiate if look at them funny.

comment Where do migratory birds go when it rains?
Quick point, all birds aren't likely to do the same thing. A duck, an ostrich, a pigeon, and an hawk are likely to have different reactions. Example, pigeons are known to rain bathe on the ground. Would examples for common flocking birds of US cities be sufficient?
