..I saw something on the baord that made me think there was a strange preponderance of birthdays at one time of year
I came up with a hypothesis, and thought the sensible thng to do then was gather evidence, in order to prove or disprove it.
I asked the question, and am now trying to get enough replies to see if there is any support for it. (I'd be just as happy to get a definite "no - there is no relationship", something else could be ruled out).
Once that's done, if there is a relationship, then we look for a possible reason. (There seems little point before that).
After all, when Peter Goadsby found the hypothalamus thing, it didn't explain why that has an effect. It doesn't invalidate his research, though. Now he knows what he's looking for, he can concentrate on that.
What's the problem?
