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):

Nice work Abby and John! Great program. I have a programming assignment at University to basically make what you have here, and all I can say is "My I hate leap years!" - just got it all finished, but leap years perplexed me for a good ten-fifteen minutes! Nice work, and thanks for the great 'testing partner'! ^_^

The counter methodology is entirely intentional, I assure you! It is called the "Days Alive" calculator, not the "Days Old" calculator, for a reason. It is the number of distinct days you have been on the planet, including your first one, and including today. That does make it one more than an age calculation, since you wouldn't be "one day old" until 24 hours into the game. But the day you were born counts as a day that you were alive here at Bonkworld.

You are off by 1, it is a common mistake. The counter is counting the day you are born as 1, instead of 0. Therefore it is not saying how old you are, or how long you have been on this earth. It would be more accurate if you wold change that. Please do!

I simply love your website! Thanks to you, I once again feel that grad school is worth the effort. Well, I've gtg and write those three papers that are due next week!

btw, today is 16,105 for me.

Thanks, Jesus. And here I was thinking it was kinda funny how people really think there was a real Jesus who had a specific birthday and all, and the guy SHOWS UP HERE! Now that's the power of the Internet. Praise Jesus. Although I reckon he'd get too embarrassed by too much praise. Except maybe on his birthday.

20 November 2007 19:48:08 Jesus

I do. And now I know how many days old I am. Thanks be to you.

Just going back to that Jesus days thing. He wasn't actually born on Christmas day, as in Dec 25th. He was actually born some time in the spring, but because of the way their calendar was a bit different the church changed it. Nobody knows his actual birthday.

I am turning 50 soon. I wanted to know the exact amount of days I will have lived when I finally am called home at 102. Thanks

Thank you for this service. Really original and useful. Promise I will use it often

20 July 2007 13:32:57 HappySarah

Wow!! It helped me with my math homework!! Thanks!!

1 July 2007 21:44:44 Taylore

cool it told me about some things I didn't know!

If anybody cares- most scholors agree that our calendar based on the birth of Jesus is probabally off by 4 to 6 years, likely being born around 4BC to 6BC, as well as the fact that He was probabally born in either the Spring or Fall.
BTW- celabrating my 13,441st.

Glad you liked it, Simon, and sorry to hear about your old man. Hopefully, you'll make it to at least 25,000!

17 May 2007 20:41:11 Simon

Awesome. It gave me a way of knowing how many days left until I outlive my Father, who sadly died in 1966 aged just 48.
June 5, 2007 (17,815!) is my big day, and now I'm sure.
Thanks so much.

Hey Cassie, happy 5,641st! Glad you're having fun with the site!

14 May 2007 01:06:52 Cassie

Oh wow,
I figured out I would be exactly half my Moms age on August 19th of this year. Pretty exciting considering I'm only 15. Thanks, I love this.. I sat here for 3 hours one day messing around on it and I actually wasnt bored for once. [its my 5641st day alive..]

By the way, Bible scholars have figured out that Jesus was most likely born in September, not December! Assuming He was born on Sept. 30, 0000, he would be alive about 732,452 days at this point (this does take into account that He was dead in the grave for 3 days before rising again...)!

30 April 2007 12:09:14 James

Today is my 34th B-Day. I did a simple calculation to figure out how many days I had been alive and came up with 12418.5. Then, I wondered if there was a calculator on the Internet to figure this out and found your site. You told me I was 12419 days, which was the same answer I figured, rounded up to the nearest whole number. Pretty good!

wicked cool. thanks!
and btw, everyone know Jesus was born on xmas, not nys :)

Hey, thanks for the link. I tried it and it seems like a very cool idea but apparently has a few bugs: I put in my birthday and it said:

You are -1853 years old and you were born on a Friday

So, something went wrong somewhere clearly. But I love the concept...

Sorry, your comment has been shot down by our spam filter. Unfortunately, we've been forced to implement a fairly aggressive filter system thanks to the profusion of shameless idiots in the world.

seems to get shot down cause of the url I'm trying to post.. anyway around it.??
