comment Is it worth connecting my cities with roads early in Civ 5?
Roads are indeed very useful in war. When playing Rome, I tend to have my Legions build roads to the civs I will soon attack, so that when I declare war I can reinforce my troops far more quickly.

comment Resource Rate of Victory Points?
Rates are indeed per minute, and an observation post adds a 40% bonus. So for manpower points, you only make a loss, except for long games with lots of players in your team. For fuel and munitions, it's a tradeoff.

comment How do redstone torches (circuits) work in Minecraft?
Torches provide power in all directions, including above and below, except the block the torch is attached to. So a torch hanging on the side of a block transmits power above, below, away from the block, and to the side. A torch standing on top of a block transmits power above, and to all four sides.

comment How deep does water have to be to prevent fall damage?
I fell from cloud level (not sure how high it is exactly, but pretty high), in two blocks deep water, and I got no damage. Not too sure that it would require 3.

comment What's the most efficient Minecraft mining strategy?
This optimizes for minimum space usage. In my opinion, that's a poor choice. I mine vertically downwards, then spiral out horizontally, two blocks between the spiral arms for optimal coverage. What do I win? Time! After 100 tiles dug I'm only 9 tiles away from the vertical shaft, where I have the main storage, crafting, etc. Branch mining suffers from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schlemiel_the_Painter's_algorithm : after 100 tiles dug you're 100 tiles away from your starting point.

But at least until the AI gets an upgrade, ladders are also safe?

Just curious, what game are you talking about? Your question doesn't mention it.

I have all the speedrun achievements, and adrenaline was the key to most of them.
