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):

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!

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...)!

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!

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.??

Well, Mudzy, silly is our middle name here at Bonkworld, but I got the filter idea from, and those guys, well, they're pretty silly too. But smart!

As for the calculator, I stand by it. Most similar calculators come up a day short because they count days old instead of days alive. There is a one-day difference. You're one day old on your second day on the planet. If you're born January 1, most people would look at January 2 and say OK 2-1 is 1. I say you've been on the planet 2 days. That's why it's "days alive" and not "days old". I haven't seen another days alive calculator out there. But there are actually things I don't know!

11 April 2007 23:19:33 Mudzy

your comments filter is silly...
and if it is as silly than I bet your calculator isn't as accurate either...
found two other sites with the same calculations and they did not agree with yours...

If that isn't interesting, i googled the internet, wondering if i could know how much days i've been alive. Surprise, i find this site.
It's pretty interesting, it's a different perspective to count the days rather than the years.

BUT.... What if i want to know how much days has Jesus been alive? It doesn't work, i think. And what's his birth date anyway.. 1st January, Year 0?

Thanks to christoph for noticing that bug...I've had a chance now to get into the code and fix that problem, and also add a few little enhancements...

8 November 2006 19:37:50 John

Eeee, that's crap, sorry! I'll definitely look into it!

8 November 2006 18:12:19 christoph

Can anyone check the code? There is a glitch in the software. When i type in my bday it says this.
This is day number 9,959
for people born on August 4, 1979

Your 10,000th day will be on December 19 this year!

Your 10,000th day will be in 19 days, on November 27!

each time i check the second one moves ahead but it always says i have 19 days left, the same DATE of the true anniversary.
