Subject: RE: BS: Why Do Little Boys Shiver After......
One theory that appeared and disappeared after arch-fraud Robert Maxwell's death (he fell off his yacht and drowned in 1991) was that he had gone on deck late at night to have a pee, had a fainting reaction after urination and left the boat involuntarily. The fainting effect is the extreme version of the shiver reaction, caused by sudden change of blood-pressure.
