And what we're saying is you're wrong. You also completely misunderstood saia's analysis here.

Gibs happen from full to dead yes, but here's a much more likely situation:
I have 60k hps
Festergut hits me for 25k (35k hps)
Golijov heals me for 20k (55k hps)
Festergut hits me for 25k (30k hps)
Festergut hits me for 25k (5k hps)
Lookie there, I'm alive.
I am also a very firm believer in the margin of error argument in that if you have more hit points, even if it is a slightly larger amount, it gives healers a bigger margin of error if they have to run or divine please or whatever.
Saia is completely right also about bosses hitting for various levels.
While more than 50k hit points might not help you survive a 3rd hit if you receive no heals for a boss who's max hit is 25k, it will help you survive a 3rd if you only get healed once.
This entire conversation just makes me nerd rage really really hard and I'm sick and tired of fighting it. At least I managed to covert Saia.
