In Denmark, it's someone's job to monitor and maintain a replica of the country in megapopular exploration game Minecraft. If you take away one thing from this piece, make it that.

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, apparently the replica of Denmark that the Danish government sanctioned and built in Minecraft is being attacked. Though dynamite is banned from the server which hosts the virtual replica, players found a way to sneak in hilariously large quantities by using a mining cart full of dynamite. Not so much a loophole as an amazingly huge mistake. As such, varying levels of damage have been done; some American flag fans even redecorated one area, as seen above.

The Danish government department responsible for maintaining the server told The Register that it isn't too concerned about the "minor" damage done. "We consider that as a nature of playing Minecraft," chief press officer Chris Hammeken said. He also said that his agency "will rebuild minor areas if buildings are removed and nothing new is being created," but in general, he sounds pretty casual about the whole affair.
