Minecraft streamer devastated after 160 hour run ruined by small mistake

Twitch streamer and YouTuber Sips was 168 hours into a session of Minecraft on hardcore mode, when a misclick during a simple task cost him all of his progress.

You hate to see that. Hardcore modes in video games are legendary for how brutal they can be. When you die, you die, and you lose all your progress. Minecraft added Hardcore mode when it officially released in 2011, and added a multiplayer hardcore mode a year later. For single player, the server world is deleted upon death.

Sips, a streamer and YouTuber under the Yogscast gaming group, had been playing a hardcore session for nearly a week heading into his September 21 stream. From humble beginnings, he had built a vast Minecraft empire, and was in the process of creating an iron golem farm. But during that process, disaster struck.

Sips was in the middle of moving wooden signs, and when he want to go break another sign, he accidentally struck one of the iron golems. Obviously upset, the iron golem retaliated, and smacked the streamer into the lava fixture nearby.

He momentarily escaped by pushing through the pack of iron golems that weren’t attacking, but the one he slapped in the face eventually caught up to him and killed him as he tried to escape.

Sips expressed dismay at the golem’s ability to strike him, but eventually anger and denial gave way to grief and acceptance.

“Oh fuck chat, we lost everything.”

After losing his life to a golem that was meant to die, the streamer activated spectator mode and flew over the expansive world that he had built for himself, and lamented over all the progress and buildings he had lost.

The Minecrafter dismissed the idea of editing files or cheating to restore the lost world, but later on Twitter acknowledged his mistake and promised to give a hardcore run another go.

“I died. 168 hours down the drain. starting again on attempt 6 monday morning because I hate myself that much.”

Better luck next time, Sips. And please turn off the iron golem spawner during your next build.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
