Saturday Night Fun Days Old?
Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:
1) Do you know how many days you have lived? How many hours? How many minutes? How many seconds?
2) For this challenge - do some calculating. Figure out how many days you've lived, how many hours, how many minutes, how many seconds (you can round off to account for the time you were born on your birth date - do you know it?). Tell us your birth date, birth time (if you know it), and then calculate your time alive up until your birth time today.
NOTE: If math befuddles you, use the Age Calculator at http://www-users.med.cornell.edu/~spon/picu/calc/agecalc.htm
3) What does all of this mean to you? Think about that marvelous "machine" inside your chest beating in rhythm. Share your thoughts!
Well since I turned 65 June 14, 2013 I am 23,876 days old, or 573,024 hours old, or 34,381,440 minutes old. The Seconds overran my little calculator so I rounded off to 206,280,000 seconds. So I guess my heart has beat about 206 million times, and if I live as long as my dad I have another 35 years to go or another 100+ million heart beats. Glad I got his genes as all the tests for my heart health say my heart is still young.
