Ok, I need some help here. So far i have came up with the following 2 methods of breaking blocks without direct player intervention.

1 - One always involves setting off dynamites.
2 - The other is releasing gravity-affected blocks over things like torches or sappling ...

I have also read there is no way to break a block using pistons. (Would have been cool if you could break blocks by pressing them between two pistons.)

Are there any other ways of automatically breaking blocks that I am unaware of?

Burn flammable blocks.
Water destroys redstone contraptions and rails, also collects wheat.
Pistons can break cacti and some other plants.
My best creations posted on the forum http://dl.dropbox.co...Craft_Stuff.htm

Burning flammable stuff (like wood) won't break them. the blocks will be consumed in the process.
I haven't tested the thing with water and rails.
and yes. pistons can beak cacti and sugar canes, I guess.

Pushing any part of the sugar cane with a piston will break the block of sugar cane.

Pushing the dragon egg after you beat minecraft with a piston will produce 1 dragon egg.
It's gold, not budder.
If you say plz because it's shorter than please, I will say no because it's shorter than yes.

To sum things up, so far we have the following methods:

1 -Setting off dynamites (or creepers)
2 - Releasing gravity-affected blocks over things like torches or sappling ...
3- Pushing with a piston (any part of the sugar cane, wheat, dragon egg, cacti?)

Not exactly, since the creeper's explosion is only 75% that of the power of TNT, and creepers are a much dangerous approach to destroying blocks.

Water as mentioned will remove torches, redstone, rails and plants, but it sounds like you want to do more than that. Without mods, no there is no way to break blocks without you actively using a tool to do so.

It would be great if we could automatically break blocks with pistons. Automatic tree farm, anyone?

4- Water will remove torches, redstone, rails and plants

my style of breaking blocks more fast is puting all setting in max (also record with Fraps) and it will break 3 blocks per click but the problem is LAG.

Use a diamond tool with some enchantments on it. Yes it's a tool but it's still fast as hell.

If a gravity affected block lands next to a cactus, I think it will destroy the cactus? This should work with enderman too if they happen to put a block there.

I recently accidently created a way to break block using pistons but i have not been able to recreate it. I will get back to you though
