    When exp bottles are thrown against half slabs, they tend to give more exp.
    When you eat raw chicken while crouching you have less of a chance of getting poisoned.
    SG facts I have never got confirmation from, but from my personal experience these seem to be true.

    #22 is a myth and #91 is just flat out not true. I've grown plenty of netherwart in the overworld. :/

    Also, I think you should add that if you plant crops in rows with a space in between each row, the crops grow faster. This is because, in the game's coding, a single crop will check to see if there are any crops of the same type growing diagonally to itself. If there are, the growing time is actually halved, making rows of crops much more efficient than a hug plot of land covered in them. You could also grow them alternating crops every row.
