My sister told me about this website sometime ago. http://www.deathclock.com - It's a website which tells you what date you will pass on to the next site. Mine is December 19, 2059. Of course it's not exact (and even not true) but it really gives a kick out of people. lol. And with their slogan "The Internet's friendly reminder that time is slipping away...", it keeps me aware that I should make the best out of my life.

Well that was a little creepy...I'm fine with my date, it has me living to 84. I put in my s/o's information and it gave him a date of July 15, 2002, and said sorry you're out of time. I guess he's living on borrowed time. I changed his "mode" to pessimistic, which he is on a good day, and got a date 9 years from now. I hope there's not a bit of truth to it ye at the same time, knowing him, it wouldn't surprise me a bit.

Mine gets me living up to 79. When I checked out various combinations on dates, modes, and other stuff, it looks like females turn out to live longer based on the website. Anyhoo, there isn't a bit of truth in the calculation since nobody actually knows when that date would be. They even have a disclaimer on that. Just gives a great kick to the users.

Oh, I know the site itself is just for entertainment purposes. I just meant I hope the factors they use for their "guesstimate" aren't very accurate. I got strangely curious and started going through my kids. It came out like this... DD#1 95 yrs 5 mos, DS#1 94 yrs 10 mos, DD#2 93yrs 3 mos, DS#2 93 yrs10 mos, DS#3 90 yrs 11 mos., DD#4 98 yrs 11mos...but hey I'll be gone 29 years before all that starts so I'll never know LOL!

we really don't know when we are going to die and if the site was true then we all would be expected and knowing but I wouldn't want to know if it was real or not. who knows I might die in a few minutes but like I said nobody knows when or how we are going to die.

Correct. The website even has a disclaimer that the dates are not accurate and are just done for entertainment. But we should still live our lives to the best as we can be.
