Minecraft black screen (single player mode) fix

Disclaimer: This is a dirty hack and will wipe out your worlds, server
addresses and all data about minecraft. Use as last resort.
Instructions are for the Mac.

I typically play minecraft on a server and this have no saved worlds
on my Mac. With the latest Adventure Update, I decided to give the new
one a whirl but found that I couldn't create a new world. Instead, I
got a flash of a crash message and then a black screen. Here's how I
fixed it.

On your Mac, close Minecraft and navigate to ~/Library/Application
Support/ and trash the Minecraft folder. Then start Minecraft again.
This will work, but it's like starting fresh with no previous data.
Not even your username and password.
