Opportunity Cost of Gangnam Style

What humanity could achieve if it weren’t galloping in front of computer screens? In the 16,000 years of time spent watching G Style, we could have built 20 Empire State buildings, four Great Pyramids of Giza and... see below.

The flaw in this analysis of course is that it assumes if we did not watch G Style that we would have done something productive. Big flaw!

But fun to think about how much time this represents. And because 2 billion views is not enough, here's Gangnam Style one more time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bZkp7q19f0
