I have friends who are really obsessed with minecraft, and did this thing with farming that has many many stories, and the water all flows down and washes the food to the bottom. I'm not too familiar with anything else in it, except that things come and kill you if you aren't careful. XD My mindless game of choice is Mahjong or if I'm feeling like paying more attention, Shin Megami Tensei online.
That's cool though, with the language thing! I think that someone once told me that wwwww was clapping in Japanese but I could be wrong. Someone else told me a w meant warau/ to laugh. It's crazy what people come up with!
