    posted a message on What is Unusually Disgusting to You?
    Sometimes I get really grossed out by things that aren't usually gross to me. Like, I'll eat ham sandwiches for a couple of days, but on the third day something happens. And I think, "If I eat another piece of ham, I'm going to puke." I have no idea why this happens. It's really weird.

    posted a message on Official 1.3 bug reporting thread
    I've got a few bugs to report.

    System: Windows 7, 64-bit, 3GB RAM
    Version: 1.3.1


    Bug name: Overeating
    Details: I will sometimes keep eating food after I've taken my finger off the right mouse button. It stops when the hunger bar is full.

    Bug name: Phantom saplings/wood blocks
    Details: Sometimes when I chop down a tree, a sapling will appear and fall to the ground. However, when I try to pick it up, I can't. The sapling will then disappear from the ground, reappear in the air, and fall down again. I've also seen this happen once with a wood block that I chopped. It fell onto a leaf block above my head, but when it fell down to the ground it behaved like the saplings I described above.

    Bug name: Bizarre mob movements
    Details: Mobs will sometimes slide along the ground as though they're on ice, then zip back to their location from before they started to slide. I once saw a chicken slide backwards right through a fence, then quickly slide forwards to its proper place. I've also seen mobs standing one block down in the ground, so I can only see half of them. It doesn't hurt them, and they pop back out of the ground pretty quickly. I've mostly seen these bugs with farm animals, though I did see a spider stuck in the ground too.

    Bug name: Wonky pig heads
    Details: When I am leading pigs with wheat, they follow me, but their heads will be turned to the side, looking away from me.

    posted a message on Do you use mods?
    I use Optifine and Single Player Commands, the latter mostly for flying around and taking aerial pics of stuff. Though I will occasionally use SPC to get netherwart if I can't find any in the first nether fortress I find. I hate traversing the Nether.

    Before I took my driving test the instructor told me the test was impossible to fail, after I was finished with the test I was told I had almost failed.

    :B

    Quote from Acteon

    I had an 'instructor' just like this. Apparently I passed the actual driving portion by a single point.

    Years down the line; I have yet to have a single accident or ticket and am by far the safest driver of anyone I know.
    Funny how things turn out, no?


    My instructor had to bump me up a tenth of a percent to pass me. And yet, I've gone the past ten years with no tickets and only one accident (the police said no one was at fault). Your score on the test is not really an indicator of how good a driver you're going to be.

    posted a message on Is it hard to play minecraft on a laptop?
    I have a pretty cheap laptop (Toshiba Satellite, 64 bit, 3GB RAM), and I can play Minecraft just fine. I used to have lag issues until I installed Optifine, and that fixed things right up. I still have some lag issues in taiga and jungle biomes, but nothing that makes the game unplayable. I do have to play with the distance set to short, however.

    The touchpad was kind of annoying at first, but I got used to it pretty quickly. If you don't like the touchpad, though, you can always just plug in a mouse.

    EDIT: I should also mention that I only play singleplayer, and I don't use a lot of redstone. Large redstone contraptions tend to make it pretty laggy.

    Driving is easy. Problem is knowing what people around you are going to do. You have to watch the road and people around you, because they can do something stupid at any time.


    This, this, this. Never assume other people are good drivers. I always drive under the assumption that everyone else on the road is both drunk and an idiot.

    posted a message on Where Do You Prefer to Build Your House?
    I like to build on the edges of deserts, near another biome so I have access to dirt without having to dig a lot. Deserts are my favorite, because it's easiest to spot and kill mobs out there. When I'm building, the flatter the land, the better. I usually build aboveground with a basement for storage, but if I run out of room on the surface I'll expand the basement into a whole subterranean complex.

    posted a message on What is YOUR house!? (W/Vote System!)
    Mine is still very unfinished. Also really blocky and ugly.

    The front of my house.


    The back. That's my melon farm to the left, and a well plus cactus garbage disposal to the right.


    My little kitchen, with dispensers full of melon, some furnaces, and a shelf of cookbooks.


    But wait! That wasn't a bookshelf, it was a painting hiding a secret passage to my workroom on the top floor!


    Here's my melon farm.


    My mostly undecorated living room. You can see my reed farm and chicken coop out that window.


    My bedroom. Again, it's not yet been decorated.


    Last but not least, the deck. It also is in dire need of decoration.

    Everyone else's are so much better than mine. ;_;

    Quote from Zak_inc

    Same here

    And for some reason i always look tired too even when i have had a good 14 hours of sleep


    You're probably spending too much time in bed. I always get headaches if I spend more than 9 hours in bed. And anyway, you don't really need more than 9 hours a night.

    Are you reading a novel, a textbook, a magazine, a comic? Let us know!

    And no "I'm reading this thread" comments. We all know that currently you are on the Minecraft forums. You don't have to tell us.

    Anyway, I'm currently rereading Stalking Darkness by Lynn Flewelling. It's the second book in one of my favorite fantasy series. It has spies, wizards, and necromancers. I highly recommend it.

    I'm also working my way through Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, the most FABULOUS manga ever written. I'm on part three right now. There are no words for how much fun it is.

    Sell some stuff! Have a garage sale, or find a used book/DVD/whatever store that will take stuff you don't want anymore.

    posted a message on Is cheating (or mods.) wrong?
    Minecraft doesn't have any rules. You can't cheat if there aren't any rules.

    However, if you're on a server that forbids mods, then obviously that would count as cheating.

    posted a message on Help with Wheat Farming
    I always use lilypads to cover up the water. They're prettier than slabs, in my opinion.

    Also, you only need one block of water to hydrate a 9x9 area.

    A is wheat and O is water. This allows you to get the maximum usage out of your 9x9 square.

    Quote from bryann381

    ** Wearing a pumpkin as a helmet allows you to be underwater 4-5 times longer than usual


    I was just thinking that I'd want to make it easier to breathe underwater. I've been building a house over an ocean, and it's really annoying to constantly have to watch those little bubbles while I build to make sure I'm not about to drown. I think I'd make pumpkins enchantable. The level of enchantment would determine how much time you could spend underwater.

    Some more things I'd like to do:

    - make it so you can get glass without Silk Touch
    - make signs stackable (I want to be able to take a bunch of them into a cave with me so I don't get lost)
    - make another use for rotten flesh, possibly for brewing
    - make enchanting predictable, it's just ridiculous that you never know what enchantment you're getting
    - make squids drop delicious calamari (this one is less about an issue with the game, and more that I just like calamari)
