From Before the Stone Age To the WoW in a Single Year


I don’t know about all of you out there but I’ve never been sucked into the crazy fray that is World of Warcraft.  However, that doesn’t mean I’m not 100% astounded by its mass appeal.  And when I say mass appeal I mean so much data that you can compile one year’s worth and you can literally go back to before the stone age.  At least that’s what the folks at Lazy Supper found out.

11.5 million people playing on average 653 minutes per week tallies up to 7,509,500,000 (or roughly 7.5 billion) minutes. Every week. That’s 125,158,333 hours or about 5,214,930 days. Those 5.2 million days are equal to a total of 14,287.481 years. Therefore, humankind spends well over 14 thousand years playing World of Warcraft each week. All together, that’s about 742,456 years every year.

Now you might wonder what does this translate to?

In a single year, enough man hours of World of Warcraft are played to reach back to the Middle Pleistocene.  Before Neanderthals walked the earth. A few weeks before the Stone Age, and back to Homoerectus

Good God that’s a lot of time lost that could have been spent trying to at least touch a girl.  Come on guys!
