Death clock: tick tock tick tock when will you stop

By Aisling | May 26 2011 | 19 Comments

Okay – the world didn’t end on Saturday night with the ridiculous Rapture.  But of course that was no surprise.  So if you went a bit mad and told your boss to eff off and embarked on a wild affair with your next door neighbour, in the anticipation that it wouldn’t really matter as the world was ending anyway, you might be feeling a bit foolish now.

But it won’t stop predictions about the hour of our doom.  Even though every single one of them since time immemorial has obviously been wrong, crackpots are still busy calculating with the help of Mayan predictions, astronomical signs and stale cornflakes, when it is all going to end.

I really don’t want to know do you?  Well I thought I didn’t until I went on to Death Clock and worked out exactly how many seconds are left to me.  And then I definitely didn’t want to know any more.

The worst part of Death Clock though is the part of the site where they pick a celebrity, say nasty things about them and then pick the moment of their death.  To wit: Britney Spears

“As far as I can tell, Britney Spears isn’t exactly evil incarnate, although something tells me her music gets quite a bit of airplay in the lowest depths of Hades.
So, for all your Britney fans out there, enjoy this special celebrity Death Clock:
Sunday, March 22, 2054 “

Yikes. Poor Britney

Do you want to know the exact hour of your death – if they could work it out using genetic markers and other sciency things in the future?

    I would admit to being slightly obsessed by dying. I have a thing about annurisms. Would like to be around for a bit longer, at least to see the Grand Canyon in August!

  • RiRi says:

    Ohh god, I am really scared of dying, I actually get anxiety attacks when I think about it. I would never want to know when am I gonna die, if it happens, it happens, would’nt want to know at any cost.

  • Irene says:

    Well, 2054 isn’t too bad for Britney. I remember a couple of years ago when she shaved off all of her hair, there were all this creepy bets on the internet that she would die soon. Same thing for Amy Winehouse.

  • Jeannie says:

    Not for anything!

  • No way in effin hell…. Already this posting has left me depressed and anxious :(

  • Sandy Beach says:

    I figure I’ll head at minimum of 84 and nicely too, in my sleep, riding along as a passenger in a car.

    Sat behind the hubby on a scooter in Rhodes (no need for helmets) and my opinion was if we come of this bike just kill me, I don’t want any pain or broken legs, etc.

  • Sandy Beach says:

    Just went on Death Clock. I’ve years left – 61 of them infact.

  • CeeCee says:

    30 yrs left..fun times.

  • Aisling Aisling says:

    Light Pink Pearl – oh no I’m so sorry! It was meant to make you laugh at the ridiculousness of it all

  • Parsnip says:

    Don’t care when I go, but I know HOW I want to go!

  • Anita says:

    I have 55 years to go according to mine. Not bad. But 79 seems a bit young to die, as both of my grandparents (I don’t know about my father’s parents) are old. My grandmother swears my grandfather has 9 lives. He’s 93 and still hanging in there!

    Speaking of “knowing when your death is”, I heard a creepy story from a friend. Her sister was on a train to somewhere, when she bumped into a man. She apologised, and he said “That’s alright *her name*”. She was surprised as she had never met him before, and he explained that he was a psychic. He told her she would die before she reached 40, among other predictions. Gick. She’s 30 I think.

    Way to scare people, man on train.

    We all die someday, but no one likes to think of themselves as having a timer!

    Btw, I never knew about the Rapture! I don’t read the news often, obviously! It was only on the day that a friend brought it up, and I was all “wha?”.
    Supposedly the world will end on the 21st of October 2012, according to the Mayans. *rolls eyes*.

  • RiRi says:

    Anita, re the creepy story, my mum was told by psychic(more like our temple priest who is also a hand reader and makes horroscopes) that she will die after 35, her health suddenly deteriorated when she was 36 and died at 40. When she was in her last days, the same priest told us that no matter how good health care she gets, it won’t help as she has to leave the world. She was in the best hospital but no medicine worked to cure her Septicemia (sp??).
    Its so sad and creepy!!

  • Oh no worries Aisling… :) It was just another way of saying that I am myself too a bit of a death and end of the world phobic, so no, I do not want to know anything.

    which is why I even hate to watch some shows on Discovery Channel :s

  • Aisling says:

    I’m going to live to be 100,can’t complain about that one so…:)

  • Aisling Aisling says:

    Do you know I wouldn’t like that either!

  • Eve says:

    Oh no – I would hate to know. It could be right around the corner or it could be years and years from now but either way it would have an affect on how you lived your life and I’m not sure that would be a good thing…for me anyway – for each senario my response would probably be to get demotivated and eat a lot of cake!

  • Anita says:

    RiRi – I’m sorry about your mum! Also, oh dear. I don’t think I’ll tell that story to my friend, she was creeped out enough already!

    Aisling – WHO would want to live to 1000!? Way, way too long to live for me thanks. But I’m sure, if the technology was made possible, someone would try to live to 1000, just for the heck of it!

  • Aoife says:

    Hate the thought of dying, everyone says such and such lived to 80 isn’t that great but even if you’re only twenty that means that all you get is to live the same amount of time 3 more times which really isn’t all that much

  • Breige says:

    Lol, this reminds me of that episode of The IT Crowd, soooooo funny!!
