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!

    Uh oh .. Austin used the wrong "Calorie". So the word calorie is spelled with an upper case OR lower case C. If it is lowercase, it represents a different numeric value. I want to say that 1000 calories is the same value as 1 Calorie, with a big C. Anyway-

    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.
