Do you think Einstein wasted his time? He spent days and hours studying using his time productively. Are you calling him a fool?
Einstein wasn't a fool, but he certainly wasn't an overworking maniac that you seem to be.
He did things purely out of the enjoyment of it, just like any sane human would.
He wasn't always "productive".
I'm not saying that you shouldn't enjoy life. In fact you should, but in a productive manor.
Firstly, it's manner.
Secondly, it is not humanly possible to be productive constantly.
Sure, you should be productive sometimes, but have fun regardless of wether you are being productive or not. If you focus on being productive all the time, you will go insane.
Also, again on you saying we can all be better people right now:
There is no such thing as one person being "better" than another.
You don't gain much experience from using programs, you gain programming experience as you make programs. The most influential programmars like Bill Gates and Bjarne Stroustrup were not game addicts. I used to think that gaming does help in life, just like you. I noticed how useless it is months ago.
The reason I started programming is because I played games, so games aren't all bad as you would lead us to believe.
You can have recreational pursuits in a more useful manor, like playing sports, it helps your health.
I don't play sports at all and I use the computer all day and I'm in better physical condition than most of my classmates who DO play sports. Not saying that's a universal law, but saying that just because you don't play sports doesn't mean that you're obese and your health is terrible.
Basically, being born is a waste of time, because you don' t produce. Sorry, but in which year are you? 1921? we need to do everything that we want (obviously considering the other people), get a job, work 8/5, and play minecraft, football, tennis, etc. for enjoying.
No its not. Let's say you had a bad day feel like fighting and blowing something up, play Minecraft. Feel like recreating a cool house or some other building you saw and thought was cool, play Minecraft. Feel like going on a big adventure with your friends and fighting monsters while trying to survive, play Minecraft.
There are MANY things to do, if you can't figure out one you shouldn't have bought the game.
"Science isn't a matter of WHY, it's a matter of WHY NOT? WHY is so much of our science dangerous? Why don't you marry safe science if you love it so much? In fact, why don't you invent a special safety door that won't slam you in the butt on your way out? BECAUSE YOU ARE FIRED!" -Cave Johnson
This, OP, YOU are a waste of time. Just cause your parents wont let thier 10 year old son get minecraft. He has to come here and complain about time wasting, which is really what you are doing too dumbass.

sometimes, when I am at home alone and I cant get to sleep, I like to cover myself if Vasalene and pretend that I am a slug.
Minecraft won't get us anywhere. I used to be addicted to games last year. We can all be better than we actually are right now. The imaginary world that many Minecrafters live in has no value in their lives.
If we need to be as productive all the time as you complain that we need to, then why are you wasting our time with this completely unproductive rant of yours?
