Why should all three parts of the anesthetic have to wear off? It seems like Randall would probably not write "Everything ok" if he could feel the procedure. 02:10, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

^ Agreed, it is most likely the anæsthetic and paralytic wore off, leaving the analgesic. So, he was awake, but "Everything [was] ok", because he was not feeling pain. 15:39, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Could this be a reference to superflat mode? 22:31, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

^ No, this was during beta 1.2 when there were no modes. ~iFinity

I think that the guy was crazy but if this was before super flat, it could have possibly have been a model used in the mode. -- Otis (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

The phrase "Due to the inhibitory effects of painkillers" is flat-out wrong (pun intended). Opioids don't cause that kind of behaviour, and even if they did in some people, this wouldn't be due to their inhibitory effects on pain (they in fact exert a stimulatory effect on the mu-opioid receptor and more or less an happy and easy-going, while sleepy, state of mind). This is more a reflection of the personality of Cueball being exposed by his drunken-like state, if anything. I edited the sentence by replacing this with "While intoxicated with painkillers" ~~ A concerned M.D.

Could the title text be a reference to Memento? --Nick818 (talk) 21:59, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

In Minecraft: Playstation 4 version, there is a option to do a flat world like that in comic. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

In actuality, no Minecraft map is infinite- just obscenely big. This probably could not be done in the appropriate time span given, but it could eventually be done. {Sauron, the Dark Lord}

We're just gonna ignore the thing about being a hologram, huh? 18:44, 11 December 2020 (UTC)mezimm

Looks just like a superflat world; also LOOK AT ANCIENT MINECRAFT :OO THE ARMOUR BAR IS IN PLACE OF THE HUNGER BAR :OOO Beanie (talk) 10:30, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Do you think that ancient Minecraft is better or present version: 1.20? (talk) 18:14, 3 February 2024 (UTC)
The last time I played with Minecraft, it was the version where Endermen were introduced (and while there was the Magma-land, to portal to, it was before the actual Ender that I understand later got added). Changed computers, didn't get around to porting everything across to keep up. Apparently the mana-stuff you could collect (but not use) in 'my' version went into a whole magic-craft thing, but (from what I heard) it sounds like it was gilding the lilly. I could have done without the Enderman threat of picking up and setting down blocks, actually. I'd got used to fending off every other (potentially-)hostile mob and getting on with whatever megaprojects I liked to do at the time (dig huge holes, construct huge towers, etc, often in the same place; or create a sub-ocean-floor 'genesis cavern', casting buildings out of obsidian, etc).
Enderman interference was offputting and there wasn't much you could do except for maybe filling a wall-gap with water to make sure that if one of them did incidentally remove a block from it that they'd get hit by the water (and make it obvious where the damage had occured, on a quick circuit). Not sure I could get back into the latest (witches, farmers, trading, concocint potions/artefacts for things like breathe-underwater? ...when I constructed/excavated underwater, I just made sure that I had set up a 'breathing chamber' in or on the seabed (earth-structure with bucket-removed block of water giving an air-space at head-height) and kept dodging back to it periodically as needed).
I did start with even more ancient version (where you couldn't actually make air-pockets at all, IIRC) and I still have access to the Raspberry Pi's version of severaly restricted Minecraft port (I occasionally go in and do some more work on a megaconstruction excavation/castle I started on that, but there's no Survival Mode at all so it's pure vanity without any challenge at all).
I can say that (Raspberry Pi edition, excepting) it would be a remarkably difficult task to make a truly uniform flat landscape over presumably several chunks. Unless it was just a matter of gathering up as many soil-blocks as one could (dismantling hills and taking out of rock-voids, possible just junking/chesting all the spare cobblestone) beneath which was the rather obvious remains of the strip-mining operation conducted to sustain the effort (as soil is not a replenishable block-type, and you'd be using up some other non-renewable materials to make the tools to assist with the additional block-mining/destruction necessary to continue the task).
...I could while away hours on doing that sort of thing. Probably a good job I let it slide, or I might have wasted even more of the intervening time. And never had time to have dug out my many hundreds of subsequent Dwarf Fortress forts, instead! 19:29, 3 February 2024 (UTC)
