Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson tweeted that the block building sandbox game has reached a new milestone and now boasts more than 20 million registered users. In a Twitter post, Notch announced the new notch in his belt by stating:

Minecraft now has 20 million registered users. At 70 kg each, that's 25% of the weight of the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Notch also points out that out of those 20 million, 23.23% actually bought the game, leading to some interesting Notch-based extrapolation.

23.23% also bought the game. Extrapolating, we find that 76.77% of the internet will register for things they don't want.

According to Notch, 20 million people can also produce enough energy to power a Flux Capacitor. Who knew? Let’s just try to keep it less than 88 mph to avoid any temporal paradoxes.
