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):

this counter thing is pretty cool, but there is this other website that is cool as well.

An astonding piece of work. Kudos to the designers, makes me feel so much better then programs telling me when I'm leaving this world! Just a thought I have been using your program for another purpose, which is to figure out how long loved ones lives were that have since passed. Maybe you could offer a date of death to your program which would be omplefelu bypassable if your only trying to figure out your days of life. Just a opinon you have created a seemingly simple yet very complex program that along with your poem allows me to realize the fragile nature of things. Great job!!!!!!!!!

oooo Nov is my 8,000 bday !! I have a reminder in my calender :D

26 February 2009 20:10:45 TK

so i geuss 5 ppl know how it works now

26 February 2009 16:13:52 John

Yep, that's the basic idea all right TK. Just make it 365 instead of 360 or you'll get into trouble, and don't forget to check for leap years. Or just use our machine and save some time!

26 February 2009 15:47:24 TK

you are dumb i could tell you that too ,this is how it works, they start on yur birthday and add 360 every time it passes it again up to the last one then adds 360 more, checks too see how many till the closest birthday and subtracts it

Cool program! Thanks, my daughter wanted to know how many days she'd been alive, this site was easy to find and super easy to use, even for someone who's been around a mere 3009 days.

Got any more we should look up ?

Ooooh 6666, what is that, like Sign of the Devil Plus? Watch out for the extra devils that day!

28 November 2008 17:54:02 Mike

Approaching 6666... should be interesting! Fun little tool.

Very cool!
Thank you!

25 September 2008 00:57:58 Floyd

It's cool.
To be even cooler, add soundtrack with this song:
"One Day at a Time"

So cool! Thanks for making this. My kids have a blast finding out how many days they have been alive.

This this was really cool to do. I sent it to some friends and did a few birthdays for my family members. Its a cool time killer, too. =]

26 April 2008 10:55:12 Pam

Thanks, that was fun! I sent the address to everyone I knew.
I've been married 10,924 days so I'm not telling you how many days I've been alive.....

15 April 2008 22:21:46 Matt

Awesome site! actualy celebrated my moms 15,000 yesterday! thanks for the effort.

8 April 2008 20:04:11 Adam

5 million lines of code rofl, this isn't that hard...I wrote a program in Pascal 7 that will tell you the day of the week when you enter the date, and it took me like 5 hrs...only because i'm not that good.
