    Is it just me, or does "You find yourself in the Cretaceous" sound like a tourism slogan?

    She certainly could, but there's also plenty of precedent for nonogenarians whose spouse dies after many decades of marriage dying themselves within a few weeks.

    I'm half British and Half German. Supposedly on the British side I have a royal bloodline and our family has a castle. Other than a fun story to tell, that's as far as it goes for me.[/QUOTE]

    For what it's worth, the difference is likely negligible or nonexistent. Three weeks would be the gap used during trials, and therefore the gap required by their FDA approval for the treatment.
