Would Minecraft Steve STARVE to Death? | The SCIENCE of... Minecraft

SUBSCRIBE to Catch all the Theories! ► goo.gl/kQWHkJ

Today Theorists, we are once again diving stomach first into Minecraft. Eating is a core mechanic of the game and it raises a few questions. Questions like, for a person with as active of a lifestyle as Minecraft Steve, how many calories does he burn in a day and how much would that mean he needs to eat? Theorists, it is time to cook up a heaping helping of SCIENCE!

    i mean...1 block of water saturates 4 blocks radius worth of tilled dirt. assuming you can grow any crop in that soil and those crops can also nourish animals, you would have a completely balanced diet of fruits, veggies, meats, carbs, teleporting. yes the most important food group, teleportation. thanks chorus fruit

    Not going to lie at 2:21 where he goes over how wellbutrin and other depression/anxiety meds work I found to be super informative and I would like to maybe see more on how The Science of depression/ anxiety medicine works because that made way more sense then when doctors explain it. I am not sure how to make it into a The Science of video games unless maybe using Dr. Mario. But for real, I love these videos and how the Science would really work in video games like this. Please keep doing what you are doing because it's awesome.
