I asked this questions about fishing in lava in Minecraft, and it has been getting some mixed reviews.
Initially, I didn't really show much effort (even though I had researched it prior), which attracted some downvotes. That's fair enough. I can also see how some people might not see this as very useful (who would want to go fishing in lava?? There's no point!).
However, it's in the game, and after testing this myself (as I have shown in the answer I provided) it has some interesting characteristics. I myself can't really see if or how it could be useful, but there are some creative minds out there that might see it differently.
So my question is: can I, and should I ask questions about in-game mechanics that aren't exactly part of the main game?
