    Something I've always wanted to point out from these Minecraft theories, following the history of builders centuries ago, they seem to have used a lot of GOLD then, as if they never discovered diamonds yet. Sure, iron still existed before gold, but as the ranking of resources from cheap to rich, gold trumped over the rest in their era, which is a pretty amazing thing to think about.

    So I needed to memorize this for my bio class, and it is an interesting thing to know, imo, and if I didn't have something to use it for i would be very sad. Part of one theory of the origins of life is endosymbiotic theory, of course, and part of it is that the mitochondria was a small prokaryote cell (bacteria) that entered into the eukaryote cell (plant/animal/ etc. Cell) and had a mutually beneficial relationship. There's a few indicators like the size of ribosomes, their having DNA, and that they have double membranes. I found it pretty cool, idk ^^ Edit: my sleep deprived brain wrote embryonic instead of eukaryote, don't mind me lmao

    That was a nice video but me and my best friend have done a night of research and we have found that Michael Afton is the older brother because also to a few songs that listen to I in one of the songs it was the crying child talking to the older brother watch conforms that there is 3 Afton children and the crying child is the bite victim not Michael Afton also in sister location Michael was looking for Elizabeth but how could Michael look for Elizabeth if he's in a coma because he got his head bit off I know you more likely won't agree with this but this is my idea Edit: I know that Michael and sister location is actually a robot but me and my best friend came up with a theory that Michael Afton was never a human William Afton belts Michael and then a few years later he had Elizabeth and the crying child

    I always assumes that because the original villagers were bipedal pigmen, what if they were kick out, and thrown into the Nether by the rising raise of the villagers, as the villagers evolved, they needed somewhere to live, and because they can’t place blocks, they raided the villages, once inhabited by the bipedal pigmen, and put them in the Nether. Is this theory good? No. It is just an idea I had. Matpats theory is better, I just wanted to announce my spin on it.
