The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I one time attempted a huge jump in one of my earliest worlds (I managed to get a lot of good gear) and it was a huge jump across a ravine which was literally impossible to get across. So, I attempted it and fell, but, I saw water, so, I tried to land in it; I then missed it completely and landed on the stone literally next to it and died. This had me so mad that I threw my mouse against my wall and it broke. It was about to break anyway so it didn't bother me.
Back in one of my first worlds (this was back before I had the PC Edition, in the early days of the Xbox 360 Edition) there was a cave by my mountain. For some reason I'd go there, go mining, and when I was done, I'd jump into lava and watch everything burning.
No, I don't know why. Yes, I'd done it a lot.

Watch out for the crabocalypse. Some say the day will never come. But it will.
If you'd like to talk with me about other games, here are a few I play.
Left 4 Dead + Left 4 Dead 2
TES 3 Morrowind + TES 4 Oblivion + TES 5 Skyrim
Team Fortress 2
Come to think of it, I mainly play fighting-based games.
I've done a lot of stupid things over the past years, but the one which can still make me grin is when I first discovered Minecraft. My gf introduced me to the game, and eventually put me in creative mode, showed me how I could get blocks out of the inventory and place those on the ground. I also discovered flight.
So... a few hours later she invited me to a survival game. Now we had to gather all the blocks ourselves. No problem, I perfectly understood.
We walked through the overworld and eventually came across a huge ravine. Well, I knew exactly what to do... I took a sprint, jumped in and tried pressing space twice to fly across. Which obviously failed horribly, to much amusement of my gf
It's even somewhat of a running joke between us whenever we play together; whenever we come across a ravine (which is actually one of my favorite places to explore and mine in) then I often get asked to try and not jump in
I was mining a bit of redstone. I had a lot of valuables on me by that point. Anyway, behind the redstone was lava, and by the time it had registered in my mind that there was lava, I was already dead. I was not able to react quick enough.
I got Minecraft for the PC after my friend introduced me to it on the 360 back in 2011. I started my world and had it at a creative superflat world. Simple enough, yeah?
Well, I decided I wanted to play survival. I knew how to switch it to survival, but I had no clue how to switch it back to a normal world type. So I just played survival on superflat. Yeah, it wasn't as fun as I would have expected. I had to outright google how to switch the world to a normal world. I practically forgot how I even enabled superflat in the first place.
Well, I am horrible at Survival, so I tried the shiny, new /locate command. I was looking for a mansion, and well, I happened to find one that was 10,000+ blocks away from my base in every direction, X and Z. So, I wrote down the coordinates in chat of my base, so I could find my way home with my elytra after looting it, and, um. Well. When you close the game, everything you wrote in chat is erased. I made my way to the mansion, which seriously had no Evokers or those axe guys in it at all which was the whole point, because I like to be able to cheat out of death. I closed the game while I was still at the mansion, mind you, and when I came back, Im like, "Oh snap. I totally messed up. I'm so dead." Fortunately, I had a copy of that same world and the person in that world was at the base location. So I wrote down the coords, and tp'd back to my base. (It really takes a long time to fly 10k blocks even with an elytra.
Another stupid thing I did was in a SMP server. I was pretty much starting out on the game, and I was mining with some other guy, just because two people can find diamonds faster than one, and we were at I think Y level 11, the lava level. I accidentally broke the block under my friend in a one block tunnel, and they fell into lava. "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO" He actually didn't have anything too good on, just iron, a pick, and maybe some armor, I can't remember.
Me and my buddy on the Xbox one edition built a cobblestone generator( I have no idea why). At the time i was switching all out valuables from one home to new one. i noticed something was wrong with out generator so i went to fix it. When i was fixing it i fell into the lava and out 47 diamonds 2 stacks or iron all out gold, everything we worked for since we started playing was gone. I didn't play for awhile lol.
I was playing Survival with friends made this huge prank on them with Creepers and TNT, I thought I backed up the world but when I did it and EVERYTHING was blown up and destroyed (Hilarious) I tried to get the backup and well turns out it didn't backup.....whoopsie.
Whilst currently refurbishing I wanted to design an adjustable enchanting table, using pressure plates (8) around the table to remove pairs of bookcases sequentially so I could adjust the enchantment range just by walking around the table - no levers or buttons etc. In terms of mechanics I got it to work perfectly, so I blocked it in in my world and finished it off - went to use it for the first time - discovered the pressure plates blocked the bottom rows of bookshelves (I knew things like torches would, just didn't think of plates doing it). So it was a complete waste, only the plate in the entry way worked as intended.
I had a real n00b moment last week. So I'm building in a mooshroom biome and I've built a darkroom spawner just offshore (where the biome changes to Ocean). I can't get the outside of the thing to look the way I want it to, so I've spent a lot of time working on it - there's cobblestone scaffolding all over the thing on a near-permanent basis.
I'm sure you can see where this is going.
So, on the shoreline just across from the spawner I've built an AFK fish farm. I've calculated the position of the farm to optimise the number of drops from the spawner - it relies on mob movement to work, so I need to AFK far enough away that mobs spawn, but close enough that they still move around. The fish farm was an afterthought really - I don't get much time in the day for resource gathering so I tend to go AFK overnight to make up for it.
So I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself at this point - I'm getting good drop rates from the spawner while still being able to AFK fish, and I've even worked up a basic squid farm underneath the spawner. So I stick a weight on my Use Item key and call it a night.
Cut to the next morning - "Venetrix2 drowned while trying to escape a skeleton".
Yeah. That scaffolding I mentioned? I forgot to light it properly, so come night time a skelly spawned up there. It must have tracked me round the shoreline and shot me into the water. Had all my gear on me, as well as a bunch of building blocks. Lost the lot - no idea how long I was sitting on the death screen for.
The moral of the story is, when you're building in a mooshroom biome it's really easy to get complacent about lighting your builds. Oh, and the fish farm is now behind a securely closed door!
I recently decided to try exploring the End with an Elytra and some rockets. I went out into the outer islands of the End, and found the edge of the accessible islands where I could barely see a large unexplored island on the horizon, a bit too far away to comfortably bridge over to. I made sure I had rockets in my hotbar, strapped on my elytra, and jumped off the edge of the island....and hit the jump button wrong or something, because the wings never deployed. Had about 2 seconds of blind panic before I started taking void damage and died.
Lesson learned: Pillar up in the center of the island and get flying while over solid ground, not over the void.

On my short-lived epic survival world, I was trying to see how far I could walk in survival mode. I was planning on going to the edge of the world, however, there was a tall mountain that I wanted to find the height on, so I went on doing natural parkour. There was water underneath me, so I was hoping I would be safe. I went up a corner jump, failed, and landed right next to the water and died 10000 blocks from spawn. That serves as a reminder to never do natural parkour on steep cliffs. I haven't played it since. I'm off to continue the adventure.
Well, when I was a noob I didn't know how Minecraft worked (As with most noobs) so I had a lot of struggles in my early Minecraft days. I remember I would always dig a tunnel, that was 3 blocks under the surface, at night. Now, the funny thing about doing that was that I didn't know that you could craft things, so every single block I would mine with my hand, and these tunnels I made went pretty far. I'm a pretty impatient person so I have no idea why I didn't just quit the game when I had to break the first few blocks with my hand.
Well. When you close the game, everything you wrote in chat is erased.
FYI and for future reference, on the pc version all of your chat logs will be stored in the MC folder.
Hit start then type %appdata%
Click on the .minecraft folder then click on logs. Select the latest .gz file and drop it onto your desktopn, then run winzip or 7-zip or whatever to extract it and there you go - your latest game logs, including chat
I once raided a desert temple and was busy harvesting the tnt by standing on it, except there was a massive hole under the last one, and down I fell, losing my gear. I didn't know the coords, so lost everything lol
