    Good point. An example of this is the stun effect from the stone elemental boss in Torghast. The edge of the swirly effect is vague and I've gotten hit by it several times. It's also relatively short casting so you really have to be quick and move a long way to avoid it.

    Whats rustling your jimmies?

    Diabetics who don't use artificial sweeteners probably eat better in general than those who do. Was that accounted for in the study, i.e. what else they consumed?

    Agree. If sweetness without sugar triggered an insulin response, emergency rooms would be flooded with people who drank diet soda or ate food with sugar substitutes due to low blood sugar.

    Don't think so. Items were in stock and it was a 2-day ship.

    Whats rustling your jimmies?

    Got a message from Amazon that a problem occurred during shipping and my package was undeliverable, that they are returning it, and I will be issued a refund in 3 to 5 days. WTF. Why not hold onto it until it becomes deliverable? If I order again will the same thing happen? I suspect it was...
