Zakaria: The 'Angry Birds' dress

By Fareed Zakaria, CNN

This week there was a gala event held at the Finnish Presidential Palace to celebrate the anniversary of the nation's independence. Guests were dressed to the nines - proud as peacocks of what they were wearing. But one woman was interested in a different kind of bird. Look closely at her dress in the video above. What do you see? It's an Angry Birds dress. Yes, that addictive smartphone game.

So is she the biggest fan ever of the game? No. It turns out she's married to a company executive.

Now, if you think I've just wasted 30 seconds of your time telling you about this, think about this: The world has wasted a total of 200,000 years playing the game - much of that in the last 12 months alone.

Just imagine what we could have accomplished if that time was spent productively.
