    Ever heard of the Death Clock?

    I'm gonna drop dead on February 10, 2035.

    That's 938,825,900 seconds and counting.

    Seconds left to live...1,523,235,179

    Let me mark that on the calendar...

    Knowing sure makes planning for retirement in the age of privatized Social Security easier, huh?

    carolinacurious: For some real "Fun" put it in "pessimistic" mode. For a second I was starting to think it was a good thing that I haven't got anything put aside for my retirement.

    It's predicting that you will live until you are 98 years old? Did you have the "wildly optomistic" setting on? You young people have GOT to take up more bad habits....

    Maybe by then they'll have converted all the funeral homes over to Soylent Green factories.

    One of my funeral director friends and I have made plans to take care of each other's funerals, so I'm covered. LOL We have each other's plans all written out, down to the outfits that we'll be buried in, what kind of cakset sprays we want, what music is to be played, etc. We obsess over the little details, but it will make everything easier on our families. Just don't cremate me, or else I'll come back and haunt everyone!

    It says I'm dead! Apparently I passed to the other side in the Spring of 1996-- (April 30) that would explain a great deal.

    Repeatedly pressing "Check your death clock" without changing any values...

    ...gives some vastly different dates of death.

    I tend to think this more of a novelty than anything of predictive value.

    I just don't believe the bmi thing...It is saying that at 6'3'' I need to be skinnier than humanly possible for me and if I lost 30 to 40 lbs I would only live an extra year...It does not take into effect I work out 5 days a week and muscle is heavier than fat...

    well yeah, it's assuming that any "extra" weight beyond the "ideal" is fat. it also told me I was a lardass (6'2, 220lbs) for the same reason.

    The BMI bugs me, too. According to mine, I'm at risk for health problems. What it doesn't take into account is that extra pounds on me are muscle. If I were 5'6", 176 lbs., and that was due to fat, then yeah ... I'd agree. But I'm at 6% body fat. Calculating from a height:weight ratio without distinguishing between fat and muscle is oversimplifying things and doesn't tell the whole story. The Death Clock probably knocked me off at a younger age because my alleged BMI indicates that I'm already not very healthy.
