I like the sheers.Finnaly no more inv-edit to get leaves...Also,you can still get wool by killing the sheep but you get 1 wool....

Why does right-clicking the sheep crash the game? This is the first thing I am going to try. Not the shears, not the pistons- the right-clicking sheep. And why the hell do you guys keep saying "REMOVED HEROBRINE". We all know he's a myth...I think. I join a server and everyone's like- "Herobrine was removed in 1.6? I didn't even know he was in the game!"

WTF is herobrine! I played minecraft for I don't know how many hundreds of hours and I NEVER heard the word herobrine on ANY server... On youtube it's some kind of blocks formation that spawns a "herobrine" and then you catch on fire... LOL

He is a long-standing myth, much like the internet stalker, Slenderman.

on a side note, I host him in my userspace as he would otherwise be deleted. I hope he can be re-added to the mainspace in future.

I have even sacrificed my administration twice for this retarded jo- I mean, iconic community figure, and a major slice of Minecraft lore.

Sorry. Was reading the previous comments. ignore the first description I almost gave.

There's only one problem now: the leaves F*CKING DISAPPEAR if they're not adjacent to a tree... WTF? Really useful!

Use a tree trunk under the leaves so they don't decay.I think notch meant to leave it that way......
