Tick Tock

For all you worriers, hypochondriacs, and those who just like to plan ahead, I came across the Death Clock today. Takes all the guesswork out of it. You just punch in a few figures and Voila! It spits out how much time you’ve got left to live.

When I said that I was “optimistic,” my “death date” was June 24, 2062 (bad news, honey, looks like I’m gonna kick three days before you turn ... really, REALLY old). But when I switched it to “normal,” my death date leapt to April 26, 2052. That’s 10 more years of life just for walking on the sunny side of the street! (with sunscreen, of course)

Best part about the site is that the clock automatically starts winding down. You can see the seconds of your life speeding toward zero. I mean, sure it seems like a lot of time when you’ve got 1,454,632,296 seconds left. But damn, I wrote this post, and suddenly I only have 1,454,632,004 seconds left!

I’m gonna try really hard not to sleep in tomorrow.

Just how tried really hard to avoid that meeting at work a few days ago...

See now, that thing's gotta just be completely random, because I know my BMI's gotta be a lot higher than yours. I mean, if we were dying of starvation, I guess I could live off my fat longer than you could, but for all other ailments, maladies,etc. it doesn't really seem accurate. Supposedly I have until 1/11/2067.

I'd get upset about the fact that me being six months older than you inexplicably translates into you living five years longer than me .... but that would cloud my otherwise optimistic vision of life, thereby making me die even sooner.

My glass is, therefore, remaining half full. :)

Apparently I'll be checking out Dec 15, 2052. So how does that figure out. pretty Depressing. Thanks for the site info.

Did you see the sadistic level? If you are having a really bad day that is a reality check. Mine said I would kick it in 2013. I wont even make it to 40!!
I think I will try to remember to not let the little things get to me from now on.

How can a person who works out 4-5 times a week be considered "obese" according to this apparently bogus BMI?!?!?!?!?

With that said, I really can't complain too much being as that this "fatty" won't be checking out anytime soon. Looks like the grim reaper and I have an appointment scheduled for 12/07/2054 - that makes me 88 years old and pretty much ready to get the hell out of here!

Very interesting. My "1st" death is on 10/10/45, but since that wasn't acceptable, I clicked again and voila, my new date is now 2037. That's what you get for double dipping.
