Another interesting fact about this, was that lanterns would stay on and torches would extinguish after a while.
Another: Stevie used to have a voice. He had hurt sounds and he sounded rasp and rough.
I knew that Stevie had a voice, a lot of people know stevie had a voice, so I'm not sure if the fact is relevant in this thread. I played since Beta 1.8.
Also, I knew the lanterns feature you mentioned because of a mod I previously installed and played :P(Forgot what it was called, but it implemented the unimplemented or removed features in Minecraft.)
Contrary to popular belief, bedrock DOES have a blast resistance (18,000,000). However, it is so high that no amount of TNT can destroy it, bedrock only blows up if a third party program creates a massive explosion.
An average size of a Minecraft world is about the size of Neptune.
Most of the stuff that was in the April Fools prank "Minecraft 2.0" is IN Minecraft right now (Coal Blocks, Stained Glass etc.)
It is still possible to get Golden Apples from Dungeon chests
A Minecraft world does not stop generating, even when the world barrier is met, blocks will still generate past that invisible wall.

Can't you read? I said I only play PC Minecraft
All right, time to unload semi-useful things onto this thread.
Boats do not break when they hit half slaps on the bottom half of a block.
Minecraft originally had the name Minecraft: Order of the Stone, as a reference to the photo comic 'Order of the Stick.' However, it was shortened for an unknown reason.
Players used to run around with their arms flailing above their head like a wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man.
There used to be four mobs that were made by a person named Dock. They were: Rana (or Rani) the Frog-hatted girl, Steve the apricot & brown miner, Black Steve (I kid you not, that was his name) the brown & grey miner, & Beast Boy, the green & purple miner.
In the Pocket Edition of Minecraft, the Nether Core structure (the version of the Nether for the PE version) does not work in creative mode.
The cries of the Ghast are voiced by C418's pet cat, who does not appreciate being woken.
The ability to brew potions was originally intended to be very complicated, requiring you to throw random items into a Cauldron until you got a potion. However, since this was not very reliable, Notch (or some other Mojangster) implemented the Brewing stand to reduce the randomized factor of the Brewing system.
Here's a nice thing: Did you know that all mobs are genderless? Or that the biome name of The End is Sky? Or that in the image of the Zombie Pigman there's a secret message that says "THNX XAPHOBIA"? Hope you at least don't know one of these, especially the secret message.
Apples used to be the rarest item in the game.
Golden and apples could be obtained through dungeon chests, but the only way to get an apple, before they were added as loot in stronghold chests, was by killing Notch.
