Minecraft is a hugely popular game around the globe, and Microsoft was wise to snatch up its creator, Mojang AB, for $2.5 billion last year. Given its popularity, it’s not uncommon to see Minecraft gamers live stream their digital exploits for all to see. What is uncommon, however, is to see such a mundane activity disintegrate into utter chaos and mayhem in a matter of minutes. A 40-year-old Japanese gamer, who goes by the name Daasuke, decided to step away from his mouse and keyboard during a Minecraft streaming session for a smoke break. Instead of using a simple book of matches to light his cigarette, Daasuke instead tried giving some camera time to his fancy new oil match lighter. During... Read more...
