Surviving in Minecraft

Ever see those videos online where someone gets caught on fire and does everything BUT stop drop and roll? Well, it’s tough to say if we would do the right thing in such a stressful and terrifying situation, but perhaps making a mechanic in Minecraft to help put ourselves out when we are on fire by crouching would make us remember to do so if the event ever comes up in real life. This is exactly what Sam3352, a Reddit user, has thought about doing. And when you think about it, it really makes sense. About a year ago there was this story in the newspaper when a kid was attacked by bear — and he used what he learned by being a hunter in WOW to save his life. What he did was play dead. Think about it, we could make mechanics in Minecraft that teach us all sorts of survival techniques.

These would not have to be implementations that would be hard to code. IN fact, they would only take a few minutes for someone who knows the source code of Minecraft and is good at code in general. Do any of you have some good ideas to add to Minecraft that could help someone learn how to survive in the real world?

So, what do you think?
