Hello, my favorite bucketateers!

Today, I will address a large problem that had begun bothering me a week ago. My friend had said, "Dude, I have no hunger!" I thought about that for a second, and I knew what he meant, and did not say anything. For the past week, I have been thinking about that theory.

If you say, "I have no hunger!", does that not mean that you have a full hunger bar? If you imply that sentence, you are telling everyone that you are not hungry.
After thinking about this, I started realizing how much everyone said this. Youtubers, friends, and random strangers all were incorrectly implying that they were hungry.

Would it not be much better if everyone got into the habit of saying "My hunger bar is empty!", or "I am hungry!", so there would be no misconceptions about what the individual is talking about?
After talking about this, I have developed the habit of implying that I am hungry correctly.

In conclusion, I've recently realized that people were communicating about hunger incorrectly.

It's common sense that they'd mean they have no hunger points left, just like that yogg saron fight where everyone is saying something that sounds incorrect; "my insanity is going up" when they're not actually insane yet. It's because it's easy to communicate that way though the grammar isn't correct. It's been common in gaming for an extremely long time because grammar isn't important if everyone knows what you're saying. Honestly, it's probably gone on since before gaming in certain situations.

I say 'I'm out of sprint" or "I don't have any sprint left", because I have never gotten below two hunger bars.

not 2, its 6, because 1 "full point" is 2, and player have 10"full points" so 10*2=20, and sprint ends when you have hunger below 7.,

Woah, confusing... XD
I guess each '1' you refer to shows up as '1/2' a icon in-game?

"Youtubers, friends, and random strangers all were incorrectly implying that they were hungry."
Wait hold on wouldn't they be saying that they were full because they have no hunger?

If you say you have no hunger, you are not hungry. If you say that you have hunger, you are hungry.
The people are incorrectly implying their hunger, for example, "My hunger is empty" would mean that you are not hungry.

"My hunger is empty" implies that your hunger is a physical object with volume.

As is Minecraft's physical hunger bar.

I've been thinking, they should add a thirst bar, and the same problem would need to be addressed...

I mean, I started a little post about this kind of thing. But another problem that needs to be addressed is that there's simply not enough food objects... I think they could really do with mutton, pineapples, pears, oranges, venison, craftable soda (fruit+water bottle+carbonator machine),... seriously, there's so much potential for food in Minecraft. Personally, if they added more food, they would have to make the character naturally hungrier.

Yes. There should be a natural hunger/thirst cycle that makes Minecraft have more sense. For example, the player should get more thirsty as they run, rather than getting hungry. I don't get hungry when I run. Like you said, there should be way more food. Maybe even some coconuts that come from palm trees along the coast that replenish both thirst and hunger. (This next thing is off-topic) There should be a natural Minecraft Shaders mod implemented in the game to make it more beautiful, ect.

A Minecraft shaders mod would be awesome, in my opinion

I mean, water's everywhere though; cave, mountains, plains, deserts, mesas(?), and all that good stuff. I kinda just want more and more food. XD

And yes, water is everywhere. That is why there should be a thirst bar.
