Someone Built a Working Scientific Calculator in Minecraft

You know that old adage about how if you give a monkey a typewriter and an infinite amount of time, he'll eventually write the complete works of William Shakespeare?

I think if you give a human being Minecraft and an infinite amount of time, he'll eventually build everything in the world ever.

In today's edition of "Holy Shit I Can't Believe Somebody Made This," we have a working graphing calculator built by YouTuber SgtGodswordBerserker. It does addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and even trigonometric functions. And graphs! Shame you can't play Minecraft while taking your SATs.

If you give a quintillion chimps a trillion typewriters, you'll end up with a quintillion broken typewriters. They're more likely to hit something to investigate it than they are to sit down for the hours it would take to write a play or even a sonnet. It's just not within the nature of a Chimp... And a Monkey, well, even less chance. (yes, I know I used the words "likely" and "chance"... I don't mean either one literally. There is 0% chance and 0% likelihood of it happening)

That being said, Ok... That's cool. Creating things like this has always been a part of creative software... Little Big Planet and RPG Maker both have their share of applications that are non-game based, or games that are not the genre of the original work. People like to show off by getting something to do what it's not supposed to.
