your opinion:
I firmly believe that NONE of these things cause a latent clusterhead to become an active clusterhead. For some reason unknown to us, one day the hypothalamus decides that it is time to start misbehaving.
I cannot endorse in full.

I believe that the defective hypothalamus causes a rather labile equilibrium of our brain chemistry, in a way that it can be tilted into chaotic behavior by a minor event, such as a blow on the head, an infection, etc. Some like akin to a rock that stands for thousands of years on the edge of a mountain, but when pushed hard enough starts rolling down the slope, taking with him an avalanche of other rocks.

But of course it is vain to say: If I had taken one beer less and gone home earlier, I wouldn't have been mugged and therefore I wouldn't have got CH.
