I used to only keybind a few things. Since Cataclysm I've been tending to keybind everything that's used regularly, though I haven't quite learned to use all those keybinds. (I still click healthstones, potions, Heroism, Stoneform, Astral Shift.) I'm more likely to accidentally not hit a keybind right than accidentally use one.

This isn't a frustration as much as it is depressing.

I just watched a video of the fertilizer explosion in Texas. It's a fire, It's a fire, It's a fire, It's a fire, HOLY GREAT BALLS OF EXPLOSION AND ALL THAT IS FIERY. I hope the death toll stays low. Because after something like that... Man...

The video where the guy is filming what appears to be a huge fire, then all of a sudden the screen turns red before he's knocked on his ass? If it weren't for the tragic loss of life and homes, that video would be an amusement..

Another case where those who are paid to run towards the danger make the ultimate sacrifice.

jesus.

Saw a video of that and the cameraman seems pretty far away from the explosion. The video was slowed down and you can see the shock front approaching him.

After all the stupid action movies that we consume in our lifetimes, we never really understand how much force is behind an explosion that size. In the movies, you'd just duck down, fireball would grow in the distance, get up and resume shooting baddies. I don't even know what happens in real life but it's way more hardcore than hollywood.

Wouldn't be surprised if the cameraman was bleeding out of the ears and or suffering internal trauma from that shock blast.

First clip in this video, don't know if it's the same one you've seen, but you can hear the guy's kid shouting what sounds like "Dad, I can't hear" after the blast.

The red circle denotes the general area of where the guy was in his pick up truck. You really can't blame him for being a little bit more than a block away and feel safe from a fire.

Assuming he didn't know what was there that was burning. That large a fire would have made it seem the explosion already happened, then the real one.

Most people wouldn't realize the danger from a fertilizer plant, despite all that's been in the news in the past years.

i saw that too...that kid asking his dad to leave...my first reaction was, "what kind of dumbf#ck father has his kid that close to a situation like that?". it's a fire...you don't know what's going to happen...you have to be more cautious.

now to non-reality...i'm sitting at 10.5% hit after getting the sword from council last night. i can't get rid of anymore...unless i purchase the 522 cloak from the shadow-pan (i already have a 522 cloak from ToT but it's hit and mastery). i also got the tier gloves...that have hit and crit.

i'm going to be at like 12% hit...makes my brain hurt.

I know the feeling. Every upgrade I've gotten lately has increased my Expertise - I'm currently at 10% on one hand and 11% on the other.

if he didnt know it was a fertilizer plant, i can see being across the feild (hell ive been closer as a red cross volunteer)
if he did know what it was, he should have known better

if i was in that position and known what it was, i would have gotten the hell away

one bomber dead, one on the loose.

currently identified as russians/chechens

not sure how boston pissed of chechnya, but terrorism doesnt make much sense to begin with...

one dead officer as well

Edit: now they're saying he's not from chechnya, but from dagestan or Kyrgyzstan

Radicalized kids. Question is, what were they pissed off about, and who were they making a statement for?

back to wow...

Frustrating night last night trying to get LFR done, Nalak done, and grind some VP on the island. Took forever to finally get a Nalak kill (goldfailbag) and spent far too much time just waiting.

Highly annoying that never killed LeiShein as tanks kept leaving on the trash before Lei. Never even pulled him, we one-shot the first two bosses, and both tanks left, and then a procession of 5-6 others left, with other people bailing after waiting, and I finally gave up after 30+ min of waiting for tanks.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the tanks probably ended up on Lei Shen originally, left and then requeued fresh.

With the horror stories I've been hearing (took 5 stacks this morning to kill him in my run) would you stick around for that clusterfuck again for 40 valor and 200g in repairs?

Don't think so based on the comments, at least not all of them. I think some just wanted no part of it. My spriest needs several items from him, so will be going back there for a long time. Hunter just needs a trinket, so that might not be enough of a push to keep me dealing with that fight on two toons, even though the trinket is really good for hunters.

I think Blizz actually kinda screwed us with the 10-minute respawn time on Nalak. By the time Wednesday has passed, seems like all the active mains have done him, and it takes forever to get a group. Similar with Oon now, no one even attempted him last night.

It really depends on which server I'm on at the time with Nalak. On Sarg? Killed him this morning at like 3 am no problem. Stormreaver? It was 7 pm on a Wed and 2 people were sitting there trying to find a group.

Definitely puts kinks in my "farm the mounts on every single character that is capable of landing a spell on the boss whether they're 9 or 90" though. Some of the servers are so dead it's "kill them within an hour of the server coming up with the other 28 people still left on that ghost town or woops better luck next week!"

up to 14.5% hit now. Sword from Council, LFR feather, hit cloak from horridon, random stat bracers from Jin'Rokh (which have hit as the main stat), hit tier tiger helm, hit tier shoulders (i could be wrong).

was hoping to avoid spending anymore valor and save up for upgrades in 5.3...but having 7% overstat hit is killing me. i may just break down and get the shadow-pan bracers and cloak so i can get rid of almost 1k hit.

Yeah, and based on the number of people logged into guild, I think there's a lot of east coasters... man that was frustrating. Only thing that made up for it a bit was a 7-min queue for ToT#2 at 11pm, and wound up with a group that one-shot it. Didn't get loot but at least got it done for the week.

getting burnt out on wow again, down to just doing my farms and that is all

in other news, ended up posting a pretty big rant on FB...waiting to see how many friends get butthurt over it (its about gun control and people showing pictures of the police around boston searching door to door for the other bomber, and claiming that is why they need their penile replacement devices..i mean um firearms)
