    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.

    It's the M+-like torments they added that make it more annoying. So to make them less annoying they added a talent tree. Two more systems!

    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?

    Whats rustling your jimmies?

    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...

    I read long ago that that was Wal-mart's fault. They kept insisting on lower prices or they'd stop stocking Miracle Whip, so Kraft accommodated by lowering the oil content. One of the few tragedies of capitalism.

    It can be all three, or just 2, or just beef. Here's my grandma's recipe. 1 pound ground chuck, or equal parts beef/pork/veal, or 50/50 of beef/pork or veal. 1/2 c. breadcrumbs 1/4 c. (or more to taste) grated parmesan cheese 1 t. salt 1/2 t. black pepper chopped basil chopped parsley 1 egg...

    But casuals aren't talented enough, or don't know, or don't care about the punishments of not interrupting now, will they really start paying attention if it changes to benefits instead?

    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

    As a casual myself, I think the easiest way to ingrain interrupts is to make the mobs they encounter most, leveling and probably outdoor WQ mobs, really hurt if they don't interrupt. Mobs that complete heal, take a huge chunk of health or put on a big dot, root/slow, or an annoying 5 minute...

    My gnome's garrison has gnome guards and recruited all 24 possible gnome champions and leveled them to max. Shame there weren't 25. And you can guess the music theme.

    I don't understand the complaints about M+ being overtuned. I don't do it myself, but isn't it a natural thing when you keep pushing the keys higher and higher? Perhaps the issue is that ilvls are no longer increasing substantially this late into the expansion, so Blizzard is tuning M+ down to...

    What I miss with mob scaling is the sense of danger while leveling. Remember the first time you blundered into a camp of level 20 mobs as a level 12? You learned to be a lot more careful about where you ventured. Now you can happily go anywhere in a zone and all the mobs are at your level.

    You can't outlevel a zone now due to mob scaling unless you hit a new zone near its max level.
