This New Snapshot makes even more sense than you think it does...

Hi guys. I don't do reviews very much, But now I'm doing a short one with a lore twist so I guess I'm exploring new territory.

So everybody wanted this, and now we have it. Slime blocks and Honey blocks not sticking together is genuinely an amazing addition that will greatly boost Redstone ingenuity, not that I would know anything about that. But what I'm here to address now is that some people especially here, say that it makes no sense how two sticky blocks would slide off each other. These people clearly have only a minimal understanding of basic chemistry. Look at it this way: Honey is obviously water-based since it is made from fermented nectar, which is sugar water from inside a flower. And everyone knows oil and water don't mix, so all one has to do is assume Minecraft slime is oil-based, and the blocks would slide off each other like they do in the snapshot. Anyway, I hope I helped clear this up. The snapshot doesn't "violate the laws of physics" at all. it's simply a handy Redstone feature I have characteristically overanalyzed. Good day to you all.

Well, when has Minecraft ever violated the laws of physics?!

(Side note: You talk about honey being water and slime being oil based. But they are both relatively solid blocks, so we can assume that they don't have much liquid left in them... So why do the solidish parts not stick together? Although I must say I like your theory!)

Glad you liked it, but perhaps you didn't realize that because of the way stickiness works, they must have at least some liquid mixed into them, even if they don't flow. To my understanding, things are sticky because their molecules are threadlike and easily tangled. The molecules catch in microscopic grooves in whatever they touch and the substance sticks to the surface. All sticky substances, but not all sticky objects, are technically liquids.

I understand what you are saying, but why wouldn't the molecule threads tangle within the other sticky substance?

(I'm not trying to make your theory look bad, I'm genuinely interested in your thoughts)

since oil and water don't mix, they would slide off each other.

Cool. How much redstone do you do?

I only learned what a comparator does last month, and I couldn’t make an and gate if amazon not butchering lotr depended on it.
