Death Clock~ give it a try.

It claims that I have until the Fall of 2019 to live. Damn, I was planning on living the good life longer than that. Time to begin the rapid draw-down/spending spree?

At least I am going to live longer than you! But not by that much. I think this is a very pessimistic clock.

Me too! Only got 25 years left! I was planning to retire in six years at 55, but I guess I should do that ASAP and plan on a 4.5% withdrawal rate.

Oh that is HILARIOUS!! I changed my entry - - typed in that I was 91, had the maximum BMI and smoked, and it said I died in 1956.

2036 for me. At first I thought, 'wow 36 more years!'

Then I realized it's 2010.

Kind of cute. I'm checking out on July 20, 2041 and DH snuffs it on July 3, 2035. Seems as if we too can start spending more as we are not going to make it to the 100 I have projected for our retirement savings.

According to the clock, my BMI is "desirable," (which strikes me as a trifle familiar, coming from a mere clock) yet I will not live as long as my parents. They are going to give me Heck for that in Heaven...they expected better from me. Is there something deadly about being born in November? Guess I'd better retire earlier!

DangerMouse,

Looks like we become widows the same year. Bummer! What can we plan for fun? Unless I party to much the clock says I am gonna leave this world in 2045 at age 97. Willard Scott will not be around to wish me a Happy 100 anyway....

Public relations. Like the lines at Disneyland of you tell the rider it will be 45 minutes and its really 30, they feel like they got something. If you say someones going to die in 20 years and they live 25, they feel good about it.

Wow! I am going to live until 2054. That's 88 years old. I'm barely half done! That also means I will draw pension for 45 years. Sweet! Just think of all the cool things I will get to see like flying cars and smellivision. Probably won't see the Cubbies win the series though.
