The Death Clock
What do you see: the Death Clock or the Life Clock?
I tend to be a glass-half-full kind of person so, while some people may be a bit squeamish about contemplating their own demise, I am not. I agree with The Death Clock (tm) site that calculating how much life you have remaining is just a friendly reminder that life is slipping away. So, if you are game, go to the site, enter a few statistics and your own personal death clock will be calculated. You will be presented with a projected date of death along with a countdown of the seconds of life you have remaining. There will also be some links you can follow to learn steps you can take to extend your deadline.
You can read about some famous people: a brief biography with how they died, complete with images of their death certificate and their grave site. And you can view the Dead Letter Office where the site owner prints a few of the hundreds of emails he receives from people around the world (each one printed exactly as received, complete with misspellings and insane ravings). If you'd like, you can create your own personal death clock for bookmarking purposes, or buy a death clock shirt.
As for me, I think Woody Allen said it best: "It's not that I'm afraid to die. I just don't want to be there when it happens."
