What year will you die in?
Edited on Sun Aug-20-06 07:32 AM by Bucky
I used to think about 2036. But I'm taking care of my health better, so now I'm like 2043, maybe 2044. And you?

on edit: If you can give us the circumstances, that'll be helpful. But if you say "Snakes on a plane" I'll know you're lying.

or responding to the wrong thread.

2. (PeeWee Herman voice) "I said 'think'. 'Thiiink'"
Those are the years I think I'll die in. But if others can see the future... well, that's okay too.

24. Oh, I don't know, I don't take this stuff too seriously.
A palm reader told me I was going to die in March of my 43rd year. I'm 44 now, and still here! :hi:

31. Already dead
Have been for some time, according to that silly death clock thing-y.

Anybody smell sumthin?

Am I dead and you all are part of heaven or hell? :evilgrin:

34. How very bizarre...
I wrote 2039 down below based on what a psychic told me, and your death clock says 2039, as well. Hmm.

41. I always knew the women in my family aged well but
Thursday, March 27, 2081 (which would make me over 100 when I die) is pretty impressive. Guess this means I should put more money in my 401k because I'll be around for awhile ;-).

51. When I clicked on "Sadistic" for the Death Clock, I died six years ago!
If I start smoking now, then tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of my death!

30. Is that online?
Sharper image used to have a digital "death clock" - you put in your birthday and answer a couple of questions then it starts a days/hours/minutes countdown.

I tried it and it said "10, 9, 8, 7, 6..."

8. My dear Bucky!Updated at 3:43 PM
That death clock thingy is sure interesting......

Now, it gives my date of death as March 17, 2040........

That will make me very old indeed.......I will be 96 years old, if that works out!

We shall see..........

Or maybe next year. Who knows as I'm already 67.

I'm a tough old bird. So 2051, heart failure, while reading in bed.

52. Okay, since you're reluctant, I looked up your death. It's July next year.
Of course lacking your vital statistics, I had to guesstimate some in order to run the death clock on you. So, assuming you're 64 years old, 4-foot-11, and weigh 286 pounds, things don't look so good for you. Also, stay off of airplanes going to Manilla in 2007--assuming you're still around, that is.

13. Probably around 2050 to 2060.
It seems most people on both the maternal and paternal sides of my family die somewhere in their seventies. I figure I'll be about the same unless I'm hit by a bus or something along the way.

I'd be 99 then, but :shrug:

quality of life. I'd rather avoid going into a second diaper phase, though. :D

Cool, I guess.... :shrug:

20. I've been told by psychics that I will live to be old
and one actually gave me a number - 93 - so that would mean 2039. I can see it happening (assuming we don't blow each other up first) because I'm now almost 60 and in perfect health.

22. I think 2036.
I would be 80. I'd just as soon not live longer than that. It would probably be of natural causes.

Edited on Sun Aug-20-06 12:39 PM by nuxvomica
My death date is April 16, 2002. That explains why people seem to ignore me and why I can pass through solid walls. This has been a huge breakthrough for me. Thanks for posting but I must go now and try to walk into my desk lamp. :hi:

32. Wanna join me in quaffing some root beer floats
with a WWI Fighter Ace? Then, off for a swim with Dr. Franklin. Afterwards, cards with my mom and grandmother. Then, astral trip to Greece just to look at some ruins.

This dead thing probably won't be so bad. I like to see different places but always hated the getting there part in the physical world.

And... NO SUNBURNS! :woohoo:

28. Well..
Edited on Sun Aug-20-06 01:19 PM by mvd
My grandparents have been pretty old:

One died at 89
One died at 80
One died at 70 (not old, but not young either)
And one is still living at 87.

My parents are 57 and 59 and are in good shape. I don't smoke and rarely drink.

On the negative, I could lose some weight, and I don't get enough exercise. But I'd put my date right now at something like 2070 (add 10 years for the advances between now and then.)

I figure my great-grandmother lived to be 92 just by being a cantakerous old woman who refused to die so it must be in my blood. I want to beat her and live to be 100!!

Circumstances: 200mph wall kiss in turn 3 at Talladega!

I predict advances in gene therapy will extend our lifespan to 120 years or so, with the effects of middle age occurring around 65. I hope.

I like that Death Clock! I'm gonna die when I'm 102! And actually I might--my grandparents died at 96 and 94, and my mom and her sibs are in their 80s and don't look it, so I've got some good genetics working.

49. Somewhere between now
and 2025.

With two heart attacks already on record, I ain't giving myself any long shot death day. If I live to 2025, I'd be very surprised. I just want to make it to 2009 at the VERY least so I can watch GWB and Dickhead being arrested and sent to a maximum security prison for the rest of their lives.
