I believe in freedom, Mr. Lipwig. Not many people do, although they will, of course, protest otherwise. And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based.
Yay, 1.8! I love sprinting, hunger, endermen, and the new biome generation, OH, and the new lighting! It looks great! Although, I'm a bit disappointed with how some of the features were cut off from the adventure update, such as NPCs and skills. I'm also disappointed about how minecarts are rather useless now vs sprint. Oh well, gotta wait for 1.9.
