Uh- it's not a waste of time. It teaches you how to guard your stuff- and it's super fun! You just have to download it- and BAM! A whole universe where you can do whatever you want with a super-simple layout. Can you FLY in the real world (without a jet pack)? NO. Can you travel other dimensions in the real world? NO. Can you build a CASTLE in TWO DAYS in the real world (excluding Legos)? NO. it is AWESOME and I will ALWAYS stand by Minecraft.
