Surprised at how much free time people have to build such amazing maps:

Yup...theres a video on YouTube of some guys that have recreated Middle Earth (and not just from the movies) in MC.... they said it would take something like 12hrs to walk in the game across the map theyve made so far... every house has detailed rooms etc, the mines are epic and so on...looked amazing :)

my son is obsessed with this game, he wants me to install some mods, but I don't want to bugger up his base install, he likes the look from some of those

Can you only imagine just what they could do in the real world if they put their minds and will to work and sunk as much effort into it as they have the game? (It is a lot of fun, I have to say, especially with a mod like IndustrialCraft, can anyone say China Syndrome...)

That's really cool. Don't know much about the game myself but reminds me of Activeworlds back in the day just with huge blocks.
