Quote from Bomb Bloke
I think you're missing the point.
There comes a time when nothing in the game is hard. Whether it ever was or should be does not matter in this case. The eventual allowance of water won't make it much easier, but it will make it more convenient (and for some, more fun), which is good, considering how boring the nether is currently.
When something in a game should be hard, but isn't, it should not serve as an excuse to make said thing easier. The allowance of water will make the nether much easier, which I will get into more detail on the next point. How boring the nether is is simply opinion. Jeb has stated that he will add to the nether, anyways. Water wouldn't even make the nether more convenient.
A "well-armed and skilled" player isn't going to get killed by falling into lava, ghasts or no. There are many glowstone reserves over land, and those who wish to cross lava lakes can just swim through them.
There are some glowstone reserves on land. If you need more glowstone then the average person needs, you're going to have to pillar up to some hard-to-get glowstone sooner or later, in which case ghasts are deadly. I made a small mistake in assuming the well skilled and armed player did not have fire resistance potions. I never really carry them around in the nether. Whether or not you would waste so many fire resistance potions to swim across lava lakes is entirely up to you, but I wouldn't do it.
You're also mistaken in thinking water will help you earn xp from blazes, as you must kill them yourself if you wish to acquire any. I'm also unsure why one would want to use any amount of iron to farm them, unless you wanted to farm rods AFK (though unless you want to build a fort at the bottom of a lava lake, a rod farm is still pretty pointless).
I don't think you understand what I'm saying here. Blaze XP farms require timed piston suffocation. Blaze xp farms also require the blazes to move to a specific point. Pistons extend and suffocate the blazes to half a heart. You can then punch the blazes for double the xp then any normal minecraft mob. Pistons are needed for both. A LOT of pistons are needed for both. Water would make both steps ridiculously easy.

The nether is supposed to be hard. Whether it is hard or not does not matter in this case. Water would make the nether easier, which is not good, considering how easy it is already.
And even then, the nether is still dangerous even to the well-armed and skilled player. Pillaring up to glowstone or across large lava lakes while a ghast is firing upon you is deadly.
This would also make it ridiculously easy to farm blazes, which give the best xp in the game. Also, on your "end game blaze farm" point, I never made a blaze farm on my single player world. It costs a LOT of iron, especially when working with double blaze spawners.

Intelligence is everything.
I think the OP is trying get noticed by peers. Also known as popularity.
Intelligence means nothing in popularity.

*that's*. Oh and I am not being arrogant, try and being me for a day.
"try to be me for a day."
Comma after the "Oh."
Although I believe the sentence structure is otherwise correct, it does look rather awkward. A better way to word the sentence would be something like this:
Oh, and I'm not arrogant. You should try to be me for a day.
You could also further improve the sentence by adding an idiom:
Oh, and I'm not arrogant. You should step in my shoes for a day.
That would certainly increase your overall score on any essay.

The whole point of minecraft is to create something advanced out of something simple. This is why we have redstone. It's simple, yet it can be used to create complex machines.

Because when you got language options in a game you don't put jokes in real dialects.
Why not? I doubt anyone who doesn't take a creeper offensively would take jokes in dialects offensively.

Yep, that's right: Dallas and Houston, hotbeds for far-right, help-the-average joe-at-all-costs, liberals-are-trampling-all-over-my-civil-rights activism, have prohibited individual citizens from feeding the homeless. These laws are now being challenged by a coalition including "Mr. Don Hart, known rapper Bobby Herring and his wife Amanda, and their Youth-Outreach nonprofit orginization", none of whom sound liberal at all.
The Mayor of Houston justified the ban by saying that the feeding of homeless is dangerous because the food could be contaminated and the homeless have little to no access to healthcare in case they get sick... because, you know, conservatives opposed universal healthcare in the first place.
Remember, folks: Liberals hate poor people! Vote Republican!

May 3, 2012To be honest, I didn't read this topic in it's entirety, but from what I've gathered, an disturbingly copious amount of people don't even understand how this new feature is likely going to work.Posted in: Recent Updates and Snapshots
As far as I understand, the update to merge SSP and SMP isn't going to force multiplayer. It will allow a single player world to be hosted as multiplayer directly from the standard client, while also preventing Mojang from developing essentially two separate games. The standard lag and bugs (if they aren't fixed) will only occur while a single player world is hosted as multiplayer.
Is anybody familiar with the similar pocket edition multiplayer? Look that up.

I think you're missing something... We're talking about ice... not a bucket of water that you can place and pick up endlessly. Seriously, try doing this in game with even 2-3 stacks of ice. I'm pretty sure you'll realize just how stupid the idea is when you're having to place the block of ice on the edge, break it, hope that the water flow doesn't push you off before you can destroy the source with a piece of dirt, rinse, repeat...
You can get stacks and stack of ice with one silktouch pickaxe.
it doesn't take rocket science or a lot of effort to cover lava with water, especially if you have stacks of ice.
This is much harder. You have to constantly hold shift while trying to place a block next to the one you are standing on. Also you cannot go from high up on a ledge, straight down if there is lava under you.
But, with ice you could just place ice and jump down and flood your way across the lava lake, turning it all to obsidian.
The Overworld isn't full of cliffs, drop-offs and overhanging ledges with giant lava lakes the size of oceans underneath them.
A). water in ice form wouldn't do anything to the environment, other than make Obsidian from lava... In very limited quantities since you would need a new block of ice for each water source and still wouldn't be able to create an infinite amount using buckets.
Ice would allow you to move quickly across areas that would otherwise be very difficult to travel through. There is a lot of lava in the Nether and quickly turning it all to obsidian with ice does impact the environment greatly.
. Using one single grass block and a large patch of dirt can already lead to that entire patch of dirt becoming grass. There is a similar aspect for mycelium. Both of which currently can be picked up with silk touch and brought to the nether along with a few dozen stacks of dirt. If you are wanting to spend the effort you can convert entire chunks of the nether into ones which resemble the overworld, with the exception of water. You can even bring chickens into the nether by throwing the normal eggs they lay.
Not a good comparison.
Ice you place one block. You are talking about moving many things at once and placing them. This isn't at all the same thing.
None of these suggestions are practical and would take a lot of time an effort. You can't grow any crops with your dirt and breeding chickens takes forever.
C) In contrast, you can take tons of netherrock, glowstone, soulsand, lava, and other bits and make your own nether landscape in the overworld if you have the time to spend.
Once again very time consuming, impractical, and not at all a comparison.

Again - no, it's not. If "being hot" is enough reason, then water in the desert should be also non-placeable. Logic is not something from you can pick only parts thats suit you. It's all or nothing.
A desert isn't as hot as hell. Some deserts irl are habitable.
I've seen lakes in the centre of volcan's caldera, surrounded by molten rocks. I've seen lava flowing on the top of glacier. If your point is that water/ice can't exist close to each other - you are wrong again.
I never said that and last time I looked there is no naturally occurring water or ice in the Nether. That is because it is too hot.
Farms are perfectly possible in the Nether right now. Your crops just grows slower. So, this point is moot.
You can't grow crops without water.
Due to spawn rules in MC 1.2+ efficency of any mob farm is not affected by presence or not of the water. Secondly, none of the Nether mobs lot can - even in huge numbers - have any major influence on game balance. So, this point is also moot.
I was never arguing against mob traps. I said they were easier to make with water.
Your point about consistency is moot, as showed in desert example. Period. Again: if you are going to use logic, you must obey the rules of logic in your EVERY statement. You can't use them only if it suits your current one.
I have. The ironic part is that your argument has been very inconsistent and absent logic. You also based you argument on many things that I didn't say.
So I will use your own quote against you:
you fail to represent ANY LOGICAL AND CONSISTENT ARGUMENT to back-up your claims.
Water will never be allowed in the Nether.

Are you ****ing serious? Recursion is never a good argument. Are people in this thread ****ing serious? Seriously, wtf i don't even..
"uh, like respect his hate"
"stop being racist against racists"
"op is a bad guy"
WHAT THE ****?
Also, since almost all arguments involve recursion you shouldn't listen to them. It's the dumb "hitler is good, because he killed hitler"-argument all over again. Any reasonable person would take a step away from that discussion. Because it's retarded.
I think you made the right decision. If he didn't want to change, then there is nothing you can do about it. De-friend him and move on.
A textbook overreaction, just like the OP. Do you have this problem a lot? You seem to make a lot of assumptions. At what point exactly did I say that racism is good? I was merely suggesting that reacting like this to someone who is racist is not an appropriate reaction. Nothing good will come of it. His friend will not stop being a racist and now he has one less friend than he did before. If the OP had maintained his calm he could have remained a positive influence in this other person's life.
Next time you think something doesn't make sense try to lead by example rather than fly off the handle and be a total douchebag.
Quote from HugTheZombies
The OP is being prejudice?
If what he's told us is true, it seems like the only person being prejudice here is his friend, who is judging an entire race based on the actions of few. The OP tried to convince him that he was wrong, but it didn't work, so he broke all ties with him. Seems like the right thing to do considering the OP has stated he doesn't want to be friends with someone who is racist, and that's his choice (and there is nothing wrong with said choice, because its his friend that's wrong).
You're all basically saying the OP should respect the fact that his friend hates blacks, and that's ****ed up. If we were talking about religious beliefs (for example), it'd be different, and I would agree, but we're talking about a guy who hates an entire race. The OP is supposed to respect that? Are you all ****ing serious?
Try to keep an open mind here and see past your arbitrary loathing for a person you don't even know. At no point did I say that "he should respect that his friend hates blacks" but reacting in this way is immature and counterproductive. It might seem like the right thing to do if you have the attention span of a gnat but if you think about it this kind of behavior is just as bad as that of his friend. Imagine if everyone in the world turned their backs on the racist bigots; they don't just go away and without any non-racist friends the racists just get worse.
Do your part. Hug a racist today.

Dec 5, 2011LordBeverage posted a message on Amazing New Evidence Disproves Evolutionary TheoryNo, outright no.Posted in: Politics, Philosophy, News and Science
We have documented (that is, tested and supported) micro-evolution in hundreds of cases (and make no mistake, you cant have microevolution without macroevolution and speciation, they are the same thing), and the fossil record is so incredible vast and incontrovertible that it is impossible to logically deny without being disingenuous.
I know its hard to live in cognitive dissonance, but the only tenable way to live in an advanced society (technologically) such as our is, in your case, to accept that the writers of the bible simply could not fathom evolution and so simply replaced whatever God was telling the about it with the essence of "made them as they were". Made is a very open word.
Besides, what would a primitive and immature brain write if it had to describe unimaginable time scales (billions of years) without having a number for them? Yes, probably 'days'.
Also, that video is a joke.
Evolution doesn't say that "given matter and energy, new life will arise".
That's not a scientific proposal anyone is making or has ever made...
Firstly, the matter required for life must be the perfect kind, not just anything, like peanut butter. Elements in the correct proportion at the correct temperature, form more complex molecules that, in the correct proportion and temperature (really, really, hot- like lightening) become even more complex, and so on until you have a molecule that can reproduce itself. This is thought to be RNA, the first life. From there, these self-reproducing molecules enter bubbles in the water (in which they started), and become massive in number. When these self-reproducing-chemicals-in-bubbles become massive in number, and the statistics then say that things will happen to certain self-reproducing-chemicals-in-bubbles which make individuals more fit, and soon only the more fit ones survive over the originals, and this continues, and in about a billion years, you have the first cell. The process accelerates from there.
Second, the chances of life arsing are less than a decimal place then 10 zeros and a 1 in THE PERFECT CONDITIONS, IN YOUR LIFETIME. Were talking about billions of years time scales here. "Occasionally" in that video is the stupidest simplification in a long time.
And that's not even all, we have created the building blocks for life under natural early-earth conditions.
And yes. I bite on your troll. I had a good time writing this.
