I found this interesting (and somewhat morbid) website. This website has you enter all types of information – your birthday, your body mass index, your sex, your smoking status, and whether you are normal/optimistic/sadistic/pessimistic – and then tells you the day you will die. The website says, “Welcome to the Death Clock(TM), the Internet’s friendly reminder that life is slipping away…second by second. Like the hourglass of the Net, the Death Clock will remind you just how short life is.”
According to deathclock.com, my personal day of death is Thursday, April 1, 2055. Mark it down. At the time I write this, I have just under 1,456,928,000 seconds left on this earth. That will put me at almost 74 years old.
If I can somehow become more of a optimist, I will live an additional 22 years until Monday, May 10, 2077, putting me at a few days shy of reaching my 96th birthday. If only I could see the glass half full…
This website brings up a good question: in the perfect world where everything went your way, would you rather know exactly when you were going to die or would you rather not know?
