Soo.... ages ago now, I switched from playing Eve to playing World of Warcraft.   Now with the next expansion coming up in the next several months, talent previews are starting to show up for classes.    So far the Druid & Rogue previews are the ones I'm most interested in.   I really hope they ship with one Druid talent in tact as it is currently in the preview.   Nothing beats 'Nom Nom Nom' as a talent name - pure awesome there!

This quick post is primarily just so I can keep track of some planned talent spec setups for my various characters and setups to compare with some of the other guides as they start showing up as well.

Common sense certainly seems to be a rare thing anymore.    Several years ago, I came up with the following:

Nitehawk's theorem on the conservation of Common Sense:

There exists in the world a constant quantity of "common sense".  As the population of the world increases, so must the individual distribution of common sense therefore decrease.

I've been watching this "common sense constant" for some time now, and I think this theorem goes a long way towards explaining why people as a whole don't seem to have any sense at all.   I certainly have yet to see anything that would lead me to suspect any inaccuracy.   Recent events certainly solidify this theorem even more.

It should also be obvious that the distribution of common sense is not even.  Some people seemingly get more than their "fair" share, while others seem to not have a bit of sense at all.

So... the next time you find yourself astounded at people's lack of sense, just remember, they can't help it.    It won't make their actions any less bizarre, but at least you might have an idea why.
