Tar, the ooey, gooey, oozy black stuff, that if you are not carefull, you could end up in a "Sticky situation" (Pun intended)

I was on my survival world, exploring, looking for this black substance to make into tar drops, so I can hopefully get tar fossils. I found two tar pools, which I emptyed. I ended up with 12 stacks of tar drops with an additonal  40 drops, and two buckets of tar.

After I was done collecting, I noticed I couldn't sprint. Now I was pondering this, and the possible solution I came up with is when the player has Tar in their inventory, any tar releated items (Tar buckets, drops,) they are slowed down by its weight. Is this intentional, or is it a bug? I think it is planned.

Now, when I was collecting, the first bucket I scooped out, I was hit by the Blindness 2 buff. I was confused, thinking my game had crashed on me. But it was not so. So I kept on emptying out the pool, and I still had the Blindness icon in my inventory screen, but it wasn't affecting me. This blindness happened at least five times, and a few of the times, I had taken screenshots of my game, to post in this.

If any of you guys are wondering about this like I was, maybe we should put some research into it, and we could update the tar article, as it has no info on this blindness,

Thank you for reading my rant,
