Google’s Pac-Man costs “4,819,352 hours and US $120,483,800”

Last week’s,Google’s Pac-Man doodle ‘wasted a combined 4,819,352 hours and many, many dollars,’ The Rescue Time Blog made these calculations based on observations and assumptions about Google audience; here’s the math: “We took random subset of our users (about 11,000 people spending about 3 million seconds on Google that day) The average user spent 36 seconds MORE on Google.com on Friday. […]If we take Wolfram Alpha at its word, Google had about 504,703,000 unique visitors on May 23. If we assume that our userbase is representative, that means:

Google Pac-Man consumed 4,819,352 hours of time (beyond 33.6m daily man hours of attention that Google Search gets in a given day)
$120,483,800 is the dollar tally, If 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 average Google employee.
