I follow Gretchen Rubin’s blog (author of The Happiness Project — loved it! — and Happier at Home — haven’t read yet) and she recently wrote about DeathClock.com.  It’s creepy and fascinating at the same time.  You plug in some basic info about your birth date, BMI, and smoker v. non-smoker.  The site spews out a remarkably specific death date.

Creepy?  Yes.

Kinda cool, though, too.

My death date is more than 40 years from now.

Ok, I’m going through a divorce, so naturally I plugged in my STBX’s stats, too.  And his death date is somewhere between four and nine years ago.

Yep, he should be dead by now.

I totally concur.
