Yo, Steve! Whats with that guy? Why does he keep following us around?
I dont know, little blocky pig, but dude keeps eyeballing my nice everything.
You think hes up to something?
Prolly. I kinda got the feeling we shouldnt let him get too close, though. Lets get out of here
I am the Notorious MC Creep, I blow up your party and watch you weep. Every day I’m shuffling on my four little feet, wrecking those Steves and hopping to the beat. I’ve got rhymes that will blow your mine; Notch should have nerfed me in patch one-nine. You want to join my crew? Then wear this bling. You’ve got no idea the swag it will bring.
It’s in my blood. 5 generations - that’s how long my family’s been mining these emerald hills. I’ve lost brothers to cave-ins, explosions, silicosis, and black lung. We’ve all dodged the skeleton’s arrows and nursed spider bites that would’ve crippled lesser men, but the Creeper’s hiss will forever chill us to the bone. It takes a special breed to wield a diamond pick-axe. The scabs who cross our line laugh the first time the foreman tells them to start punching trees, but nothing in this world comes easy. Every chunk we explore yields such meager rewards: a few dozen blocks of coal, enough iron for an armor upgrade, and if you’re lucky, a few precious blocks of diamond ore. But now they’ve gone too far. The cursor pushers have us working down at the bottom of the world in bucket brigades of water and lava to create obsidian for their infernal portal gates. Ever since that damned update they’ve been conjuring plans to expand their empire further and faster by invading the Nether. The Nether! Oceans of lava and those hideously deformed zombie-pigmen. STRIKE! Our demands are simple: no man shall enter the Nether without a minimum of 3 pork chops per miner and a proper dental plan that covers cattle, hogs, and chickens. The land has not broken us and neither will the Pinkertons. Stand together - stand strong!
We presume that to a denizen of Minecraft spheres would be sort of like what non-Euclidean geometry is to us. “It’s a what?” Snowballs, slimeballs… sure balls exist in Minecraft, but it’s not like they’re really spherical now, are they? You can go and build one with a huge diameter, and you end up with… a really, really big sphere-shaped set of blocks. What can you do? “It does what?” “No, see, it’s just a really, really large number of blocks. Possibly infinite. So many blocks that you can no longer detect corners. It’s totally made up of component blocks.” “It may look small here, but it’s just really, really far away.”
