I’m sure most of you caught the amazing 30 year anniversary of Pac-Man that Google.com ran on its banner. My dad always told me stories about how many hours and quarters he spent playing Pac-Man growing up. Thirty years later, thanks to Google, Pac-Man has distracted the American worker again.

* Google Pac-Man consumed 4,819,352 hours of time (beyond the 33.6m daily man hours of attention that Google Search gets in a given day)
* $120,483,800 is the dollar tally, If the average Google user has a COST of $25/hr (note that cost is 1.3 – 2.0 X pay rate).
* For that same cost, you could hire all 19,835 google employees, from Larry and Sergey down to their janitors, and get 6 weeks of their time. Imagine what you could build with that army of man power.
* $298,803,988 is the dollar tally if all of the Pac-Man players had an approximate cost of the average Google employee.
