    posted a message on A very bad JavaScript game: minecraft mining
    Okay. I unlocked the Nether Portal, am mining industrial quantities of ore, have a force several times greater than the Police of Liechtenstein, and am at the point where I regularly defeat the Chicken. Now what? How do I fight the Zombie Pigman boss and attack the Shrine? How do I get to press the "Attack" button?

    We eat bugs, or at least the remains of them, every time we eat food.

    Check the FDA's Defect Levels Handbook for more information (scroll down!)

    Other than that, no.

    posted a message on Your Favorite Cartoon YOU MUST PICK ONE OF THE FOLLOWING!
    1. SpongeBob was my favorite cartoon when I was a child, so I'll have to vote that. Yes, it's sad to see it fall from grace in recent years.

    *mumble mumble cultural degradation in our society.*

    The worst part, though, is that its decline is (theoretically) easily reversible. All of its problems stem from when the original team, including Stephen Hillensberg, left the production crew after the first movie. All we have to do is to kick out the current, subpar writers and trek the Earth for better ones. But the executives at Viacom will never let that happen.

    2. Regular Show is good. Despite its formula of mundane --> magic in one episode, it varies enough to be interesting every time. Not the most family friendly or politically correct show out there, though.

    3-4. Never heard of them.

    Quote from lolpierandom

    Chopsticks suck.

    I'll show myself out.

    (and no, this isn't just "stereotypical stupid American", this is someone who's lived their whole life using chopsticks and finds silverware infinitely more practical)

    On a more on-topic note, Ramen.

    New York City has some really good Ramen if you go to East Village.


    I have used chopsticks all my life, and I find them pretty convenient. Granted, it's probably because I always held them wrong. :P

    OT: Soup: 1, Mangoes: 0

    posted a message on Where are the Cherry trees
    There's already a topic about this, with a nearly identical title.

    And unlike most of the time, the "but then I would be necroing" excuse/explanation does not apply, since that thread is also on the first page. (In fact, at the time of this writing, this thread was right below the other one.)

    posted a message on Is Mojang getting lazy?
    *Sigh* It's the thing with instant gratification these days. Problem is, it's not necessarily people's fault; they've been conditioned into it via the Internet and such: "If this webpage doesn't load I'm going to ragequit ARRGG!"

    Being patient is a good quality to have, in life and for new Minecraft updates.

    Quote from Phrossbite

    Disliking a video = bullying?

    I strongly disagree.


    Ganging up on someone to make them feel ashamed about what they're doing on Youtube = bullying?

    I strongly agree.

    Huh. Apparently the new stained glass does not tint light. I always thought that they were deferring adding stained glass until they change the rendering code so they can add that. Maybe tinted light will come with the next snapshot.

    posted a message on What types of technological advances do you think will happen in the next 100 years?
    Most of the advances I think will happen in the fields of computing and materials science. Thus better computers and stronger materials. Yes, Moore's law - ie. "the number of transistors on a chip will double every 18 months" - will stop, but engineers will continue to create better computers (either using exotic methods like quantum computers or simple ones like stacking transistors on top of each other). Along with stronger materials, we would continue to make them lighter and, in some fields, more flexible (ie. flexible computers and bodily implants). Medicine, nanotechnology, energy and (to a lesser extent) spaceflight would also see significant progress.

    posted a message on What was your first house made from?
    I remember my first "real" shelters from 1.7.3 (Beta). My very first was a hole in a(n amazing) hill. Next to it I built a shed out of sand and sandstone, with cacti on top.

    I play the piano. I'm going to take the ABRSM exam, Grade 8, later this fall. Hopefully I don't fail!

    posted a message on Why do I sound so young when i record my voice
    When I was younger, I was shocked - shocked - when I heard my recorded voice. I sounded like a toddler. A toddler!

    It got better since then. Now I sound like this guy with a weird accent.

    posted a message on How many posts do you make in the avarage day?
    Zero posts. I'm usually a lurker.

    Problem is, writing a post that's >= 1 paragraph takes quite some time. And making posts that are coherent, through, and intelligent is beyond my current capabilities.

    posted a message on 2 or 3 wide paths?
    General rule of thumb for me: three-wide paths. Such paths, hallways, etc. feel more like paths, hallways, etc. and less like rickety, claustrophobic constructions slapped together in two minutes.

    If you need even numbers, go with four-wide paths.

    Same thing for roofs, too (don't want to hit your head).
