Recently, I got back on Planet Minecraft after having a week off. Then I saw this article that got me to think how fast Steve can run. The article was about how far Steve could run before starving to death, which was an astounding 7,263 meters. If you don't know how to convert blocks into meters, let me tell you. One block is equal to one meter. There you go.

## How Fast Can Steve Run?

Well, since one block is equal to one meter, we can easily measure how fast he runs by simply using a stopwatch and the game. I time ten seconds and he has run fifty-five meters. Now divide both and his speed is 5.5mps (meters per second) which is pretty fast.  I'm pretty sure a lot of people can't run that fast. It's not exactly to the standards of an olympic runner, but it's still faster than most people can run.

But that experiment only included Steve sprinting continuously without jumping. Let's try this experiment with him jumping. This time Steve runs seventy-one meters in ten seconds. That's about 1.3 times as fast as last time. This brings his total speed up to 7.1mps. Try to beat that, Usain Bolt. Someone tell me how to spell his name. Now that we know how fast he can run, let's compare his speed to a car going about sixty miles per hour. But let's skip all the math stuff. I'll do the complicated math, and you go to the next paragraph.

## Does Steve Run Faster Than a Car?

Steve can run 12.3 miles per hour, which is about two times as fast as you can run. So it looks like Steve is fast. But not nearly as fast as the average a car can do. Cars can go two or three times faster than Steve. It's still a really impressive speed. I didn't apply the jumping speed in this one because we're making a real life comparison, and I want to keep it as close to realistic as I can get it. Jumping doesn't make you go faster, in fact it makes you go slower. But hey, that's just a theory. A game theory, thanks for reading. :D

The the comparisons aren't quite right...

I trust that you measured right and he does go 5.5 mps (7.1 while jumping), which is 12.3 mph (15.9 jumping), as you said. Usain Bolt can run 27.8 mph, which is over double Steve's speed. A car going 60 mph would be about 5 times faster than him rather than 2 or 3.

The average human can sprint between 10 and 15 mph, putting Steve right around the middle of average.

Yeah, cards can go two or three times faster than Steve. CARDS, CARDS CAN! CARDS ARE THE NEW FORM OF TRANSPORTATION PEOPLE.
