Ok, admit it.  You are addicted to Angry Birds.  Whenever you have a free minute, or even under your desk at work, you’re not texting, you’re shooting birds at pigs with a slingshot.  You compete with friends and family to see who can get to the upper levels first and who has the high score.

I’m with you.  Yes, I resisted at first, thinking “shoot birds at pigs, really, I have better things to do”.  Turns out, I don’t.  And neither do millions of other people.  Angry Birds is a bona fide cultural hit across nations, languages and now possibly, planets.

Rovio has taken a simple game and made physics addicts out of over 700 million people.  And you thought physics didn’t have real life uses.
