I realized it after 2-3 years into C2. I filled out some programming test at the university and noticed this strange line. Turned out it's a common programming practice.

If you're debugging a game to check framerates, the "Inspect" tab can artificially move your FPS and CPU% to unusable levels. Switch to the "Watch" or "Profile" tabs instead.

it may not be used often, but the fact that you can reference instances by doing: Sprite(1).x for example.. or Sprite(-1).x can come in handy sometimes.
