Have the MC uses of gold changed your view on gold in the real world?

Like I keep track of that. In my line of sight at this very moment, two: My laptop and this phone.

Not really. When you detach your preconceived notions of gold, it becomes what it really is: a soft, brownish-yellow metal. There isn't anything magic about it that makes it valuable other than the fact that place such a label on it. However, gold does have some very useful properties as far as metals go. As I mentioned before, gold is soft. you don't need much of it to spread it out and cover something with it. One ounce of gold can be flattened into a 300 square-foot sheet. On top of that, gold is incredibly resistant to corrosion. This makes it particularly useful for electronics. That being said, the main use for gold in Minecraft is powered rails (for me, anyways... I typically don't waste it on gold apples and potions of healing).

However, I do tend to hoard gold (like all my other resources). It could simply come down to it that gold is shiny and, as much as humans like to think they are advanced enough to resist it, we cannot help but love shiny things.

Actually, that's not true. Shade's hoarding a bunch of them over at his house somewhere. All I know is that I get some serious lag and hear lots of mooing whenever I approach his place.

Ohhhhh boy. Alright, It does not matter what level you are at, just so long as you spend all of them at once (under most circumstances). Enchanting is a gamble. You can spend one level on a diamond sword and get Sharpness I, or you can spend 10 levels and get Sharpness I. However, you can also spend one level on a helmet and get protection one, but that same level might also get you aqua affinity. As a general rule, the more levels you spend, the greater the chance of getting good enchantments. It's all statistics (which happens to be one of the only forms of math I actually have some kind of understanding of). Have a lookie here:

WARNING: GRAPHS

There is one thing, though, that is certain: If you have less than ten levels and want to spend it on a bow, ONLY USE ONE LEVEL. From one level to nine levels, you WILL get Power I!

If you have too much gold (and don't want to give it to me so I can hoard it ), you can do a bunch of level 1 enchantments on gold tools and armor. A level one enchant on gold armor has a chance of getting Projectile Protection IV, whereas you'd need to spend ten levels on a piece of iron armor to get about the same chance.

Long story short, it's a gamble.

Do you think you would be able to make an entire room out of iron blocks, considering how many iron ingots you have?

Yes, I could. It wouldn't be a large room, mind you, but it would be a room.

I would take them out of the chest, then put them in one of my chests that I have designated for diamonds. Then I'd take the chests they came in, put the chest next to my diamond chest, and put the overflow in there. My ways are strange, I know.

I'd just go about my business as usual. It's a boring answer, but it's the truth. It'd be hard typing without thumbs, but I'd figure it out. Might go into crime fighting because I'd basically have super-powers, unlike the puny humans with their fancy-shmancy thumbs. Then again, I'd probably fit right in with the pyrotechnic industry.

The arceus from that one movie? Child's play. Now, perhaps if one existed that wasn't constrained to a mediocre movie plot, my answer might be different.

I can't decide on a favorite material, so I generally have a mix of just about everything. The vast majority of the house, primarily the exterior, is going to be made out of renewable resources like wood and cobblestone. Fancier things like brick are on the inside for protection.

The note block. I suppose it could make for interesting decor, but it's very expensive to make as far as resources goes.

Dinner.

But if I do eat something before then, it's usually something grain-based. The time I'm more likely to have a snack is right before I go to bed, in which case I have either a bowl of cereal or ice cream.

VILLAGER. TRADING.

As is probably well-known by now, I hoard. Everything. Villagers will make non-renewable stuff renewable. Namely glowstone for lamps and potions. On top of that, purchasable armor, weapons, tools, and even enchantments! I'm already preparing for it: I've built an instant wheat generator, secured a string farm, and stockpiled coal using my leftover fortune I unbreaking III iron pick.

I have not. In fact, many of the CD's I receive as gifts are still unopened. Not a big music-listener, I am.

Minecraft (specifically decorating, redstone work, treasure hunting, and devising various ways of trapping and killing mobs), drawing (though I usually never end up getting anywhere with it; it's very rare that I actually produce a drawing when I try to draw), and telling myself stories.

That's hard to decide, 'cause I wouldn't want to be turned back. Besides, an hour isn't really long enough to accomplish anything, anyway.

My dream is shared by millions all around the world, and nearly none of them can have it: being payed to goof off. Don't deny it, anyone who's reading this. If you could get paid to just have fun doing whatever was your whimsy, you'd do it.

The part when they stick you with the needle is not painful. The panic attack you have while waiting for them to do it, however, is. 'course, I'm Trypanophobic, so any sort of needle will freak me out.

Have you legitimately killed the Enderdragon in Minecraft? (By legit I mean no hacking mods, just content mods like Technic pack. As of the time of posting, I have done it for the first time minutes ago.)

I have not defeated it, period. It's not because I couldn't, though; the poor thing wouldn't stand a chance--but I just don't really feel like doing so. No real point to it. I guess I would have to if I wanted to set up that enderman farm, but someone will likely get to that on the VR server before I do.

Far, far too long. There's an awkward phase where the hair is just a pain to deal with and it's all sweaty and in your eyes and you can't tuck it behind your ears... It takes about a year and a half to grow it out enough.

Do you or have you ever had a particular interest in photography? That could be wanting to take pictures yourself, or looking at the works of others.

Do you find hedgehogs to be utterly adorable?

No and no. My dad and sister got the photography gene, and while I don't find hedgehogs ugly, I don't particularly find them cute, either.

Being in an unexplored cave and hearing anything when it was previously silent.

That includes my own footsteps.
