March 12, 2026


This is going to be the date of my death according to calculations performed by The Death Clock.

It bases its prediction on your birthdate, sex, "mode" (normal, optimistic, pessimistic, or sadistic), smoking status, and body mass index (BMI), which is determined by your height and weight.

Curiously, it doesn't take into account your "drinking/drug-taking status", race, family health history, or your own personal health issues. (Uh oh, I just shaved another ten years off my life!)

The purpose of the site, I think, is to try to scare you into examining how you take care of your health.

It also links to Find Out How Famous People Died. A perusal of some of the celebrity obits on this site reveals some sordid tales about their lives as well as their deaths, sort of like a tabloid-stained obituary column.

So, go ahead and check out The Death Clock - if you dare!

You've ahead of me by a year and 3 mos. I'm checking out 22 May 2027. I guess my death was delivered by DHL-late as usual.

This is a dead issue, as far as I'm concerned. ;-)
