    Apparently, no one noticed when Kraft altered its macaroni & cheese recipe. See http://tinyurl.com/zhc5fqg

    What changes in your lifetime - for the better or worse - came and went, in your view, without suitable lament or celebration?

    the number of sheets on a toilet roll - I can remember 300-sheet rolls, now it's hard going to find a 180-sheet roll. And the size has gone from 12x12 to 10.5x10. All without a single price reduction. Paper companies are really good at this - tissues have done it too.

    It's impossible to get good cocaine nowadays. When I was a kid it was much stronger.

    My life almost ended when I found out chocolate slabs were reduced from 100gm to 80 and 90gm, and the price also stayed where it was. It shook my world...

    Everything changes. God's mercies are new every morning though. 😉

    Be that as it may, but to your way of thinking, what changes came and went without the regret or enthusiasm that you reckon they warranted?

    You don't really want to know. 😉

    But since you insist. The slow perpetual erosion of morality in the popular culture with great aplomb and celebration.

    But is that really something that "nobody noticed"? Even you're saying it happened with great celebration. I refer you to the OP. 😉

    The "nobody noticed" is of course a hyperbole.

    We can't really know. The correct thing to say would have been: "sales didn't budge". So the food engineers did a very good Job in recreating the recipe with different ingredients.

    But of course the marketing guys will get all the bonus...

    I remember your behaviour on the Debates Forum. If nothing has changed on that front, you are probably lying about your health care premiums having increased. 😀

    As has your behavior never changed. You simply yell, "Liar, liar", and choose to assassinate ones character verses engaging in the debate at hand.
