Minecraft -- it's a wonderful game without many goals. Yet, it's still one of the best selling games out there. Since you're reading this, you're probably a dedicated Minecraft fan. You might even say you know everything about the game.... But do you really? Here are a few facts to further increase your knowledge of this awesome game!
  1. If you wear a pumpkin on your head (in the game, of course) and you look at an Enderman through a transparent block (i.e. glass, ice, leaves, fence posts), it will not turn hostile.
  2. When not aggravated, creepers and skeletons cannot see you through glass.
  3. A creeper's fuse countdown will last a little longer if it encounters a cobweb.
  4. You can deal a critical hit on a fireball, since the game recognizes it as an entity.
  5. Ghast sounds were made by C418's cat.
  6. A skeleton will shoot itself if you are under/over it.
  7. Boats won't break if they crash into soul sand.
  8. No mobs can spawn anywhere in Mooshroom biomes, even in caves under the biome.
  9. All cows in Minecraft are female, since you can acquire milk from all cows.
  10. The ability to throw eggs was added when a player told Notch that if this was added, the player would eat his USB. He did.
  11. You can move faster through water if the water is encased in something.
  12. It takes 10 minutes and 40 seconds to smelt a stack of 64 of something (without interruptions, such as replacing the coal in your furnace).
  13. Sneaking will affect your reach distance.
  14. Most of the Enderman's sounds are real people saying "Hi," "Hello," or "What's up?" reversed, slowed down, and distorted.
  15. Zombies and skeletons won't burn during the day if they are standing on soul sand.
  16. Shears won't take durability damage if they are used to destroy blocks of wool.
  17. Cacti will destroy items. This allows for a safer disposal than a disposal that uses lava.
  18. Using a tool for a different use than it is intended for will decrease the tool's durability by 2 points instead of 1.
  19. Roses are rarer than dandelions.
  20. Rain and snow cannot be seen through glass that is being broken.
  21. Pumpkins are rarer than diamonds.
  22. Sponges used to have a purpose. From the Classic to Indev versions, sponges soaked up water from a 5x5x5 area. They also made grief protection water-wise.
  23. In the Beta 1.2 update, gold tools were able to mine stone and wood faster than diamond tools, but they still had the same restrictions as before, like durability points.
  24. During the development of Beta 1.7, Mojang was debating whether to have spike blocks or sticky pistons. Thank Notch and your fellow Minecrafters that sticky pistons were chosen over spike blocks, which would have been able to move like pistons but with a much stronger force, almost instantly killing players.
  25. When diamonds were first added in the Classic version of Minecraft, their file named them as emeralds. This was fixed immediately the next day.

Well, I hope you've grown just a little more smarter about Minecraft, just like I did when I was researching these facts. But these aren't all the fun facts about Minecraft that exist out there. So if you have anymore trivia that wasn't included in this list, please comment it down below! A lot of research went into this, so please leave a diamond! Thanks for reading, and I'll catch you next time!

I'm sorry but the fact about the Diamond tool type being called emerald is incorrect.

They didn't fix the code name of Diamonds until Emeralds were actually introduced.

I don't mean to sound rude but I thought I might let you know.

A charged creeper explosion is twice as powerful as a a regular creeper, and one third more powerful as TNT.
