The Amazing Days Alive Calculator

Bonus Poem

We can count up to ten, we can count to a hundred
and these are two numbers that we understand
And we can take one, multiply by the other,
and in this way get ourselves up to a grand

But much more than that and it starts to lose meaning
the mind just can't feel the big numbers it knows
I guess it's just that we get too far away from
our trusty friend old Mister Fingers and Toes

And so we use years when we count up our birthdays
but then there's the problem of having so few
and really it's days we have, that's what we're spending
and every day we get one brand spanking new

So don't let too many days spin off uncounted
This year thing is nonsense, a terrible trap
We hope that each one of your days will be happy
except that there's bound to be some filled with crap


Ever wonder how many days you've been alive?

Please note, this Days Alive Calculator calculates the total number of days you have been alive, NOT the number of days OLD you are. There is a difference of one day. For example, the day you were born was your first day alive on earth. But you're not one day old until 24 hours have passed, i.e., until the next day. Capisce?

Enter your birthday:

Year (YYYY):
Month (MM):
Day (DD):

Thanks to christoph for noticing that bug...I've had a chance now to get into the code and fix that problem, and also add a few little enhancements...

Eeee, that's crap, sorry! I'll definitely look into it!

Can anyone check the code? There is a glitch in the software. When i type in my bday it says this.
This is day number 9,959
for people born on August 4, 1979

Your 10,000th day will be on December 19 this year!

Your 10,000th day will be in 19 days, on November 27!

each time i check the second one moves ahead but it always says i have 19 days left, the same DATE of the true anniversary.

Wow. The oldest guy I ever did was 42.

27 October 2006 12:07:36 Adam

Thanks, I got to celebrate my 10,000th day in style... and to think they day would have been just another day.
5 digits baby!

Hi Carola, congratulations on your upcoming 20,000th! Just so you know how we count them, we count the day you were born as Day One, since that's your first day. Some people would count that as zero, so you'd be one day old on your second day on the planet, which is true too, but we're interested in how many days you've been here in total. Anyway, have a good day and congratulations again!

So glad I found you! A few months ago I was charmed to realize I my 20,000th day in the world would hit next week, and decided I'd have to party, but my math was wrong: I was getting ready to celebrate it 2 days LATE!!! So, next Wednesday, I'll clink my glass to toast you guys, too.

That's pretty cool "After that, we're getting pretty damned optimistic" lol! :)

20 May 2006 21:31:53 John

Well, I'm not sure, I think I'm somewhere between the Torch of Life and the Heavenly Mansion...

Nice wee program! Thanks!

Now see where you are in the Shesha Life Map

Yeah, you've got what, 3 years to go, so just make sure to look both ways before crossing the street and the odds are definitely in your favor.

As far as working correctly forever, well, forever is a pretty long time, and includes such events as the bloated supergiant red star sun consuming Mercury and Venus and scorching the Earth to a cinder in another few billion years, or should I say hundreds of billions of days, but I think right up until then it ought to keep working all right.

26 April 2006 11:17:10 cliff

9,080 i think i can make 10,000

20 April 2006 13:05:37 Orre.

Wooah, amazing indeed gentlemen!

I see you put some work into it, but it wont function correctly forever, will it?

Well, today is March 26, 2006 and you'll be born on December 31, 1969, seemingly. Best to check back some time after you've begun your existence on this plane.

hahaha thats funny

It's true, it's a painstakingly long bit of code carefully dealing with leap years and so forth and I discovered only afterwards there's like a standard MySQL query that can get it for you in one simple line...but "there's always a harder way," that's our motto. Taking the easy way all the time leads straight to sloth and immorality and the next thing you know you're in the gutter pining for the soft days of your youth.

I know! The Days Alive Calculator uses about five million lines of code and there only four people alive who understand its inner workings.
