Minecraft: RUMOR SQUASH!!

Hey, guys.  I posted a little bit about this rumor – well, just the fact of its existence, I guess – in my post The Top 5 Most Useless Items in Minecraft.  Yep, the fact that sponge can appear naturally underwater.

My main reason for this is that I’ve been playing Minecraft for well over a year and I’ve never seen underwater sponge in my life.  Besides, in some servers or older versions, it would soak up all the water around it, and that would look pretty dumb in maps.  There are no naturally occurring sponges in Minecraft, period.  I don’t really see the point of it, personally, since it no longer soaks up water – if it did, it would be useful for creative mapmakers, in case they needed to get rid of a whole lot of water somewhere.

I know this is a pretty weak argument for my point, but there are probably hundreds more that agree with me.  Once doesn’t make a pattern; several servers full of gamers that are positive that sponge doesn’t appear underwater in Minecraft does.



I consider this rumor SQUASHED.  If you have any better evidence, I’d appreciate hearing it in the comments.

Thanks for reading!

UPDATE: In the 1.8 snapshot, sponges spawn underwater in underwater temples. I would have deleted this post since it’s pretty much nonsense now, but the ripples from a deleted post are very annoying ripples indeed.


Hey, guys.  Today I will be tearing down a rumor that’s seriously getting on my nerves:  the rumor that opening the chests in the Forgotten Desert lessens your chance of getting rares.

What proof is there of this??  Sure, it gives you a boatload of lag, but it’s playable like that.  Amber opens every chest she gets and then calls everyone else to her to open it, and it doesn’t affect the prizes at all.

I could be wrong.  I haven’t contacted AJHQ about this, but I am almost completely sure it’s fake.  An example of my luck with the chests:  Animal Jam:  Awesome Day.

Seriously, people.  Just a few minutes ago I saw a girl ragequit because someone opened a chest.  It’s stupid and pointless.  I’ve gotten an arctic hood, rare spiked collar, a rare beard, and a bunch of other random rares while getting every chest I find.  If you don’t believe me:


You can’t honestly say that you get non-rare stuff if you get the chests, can you?

Anyway, that’s today’s RUMOR SQUASH.  I may do some more RUMOR SQUASHing if I ever find another RUMOR to SQUASH.



Thanks for reading, lol.
