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):

Hey jd with the 10,000 day discrepancy -- what's your birthday? I'll look into it!

Glad to see people are still getting some fun out of the Days Alive calculator. Today I added 1,000 and 5,000 days to the calculation -- don't want to discriminate against toddlers and young children!

My daughter was born on November 5, 1999. I want to figure out when her 5,000th will be.

It's been tradition for us to celebrate our kids' 1,000 day, 5,000 day, etc. I knew my youngest's 5,000 day was coming up soon and thanks to your calculator I found that it's this Friday! Saved me a lot of calculating - Thanks! We're celebrating by surprising her with 5,000 xmas lights strung up in the house. Crazy I know - we're just kids at heart! For our son's we woke him with 5,000 tickertapes, each with a fun note on it about his life. Yeah - I know - we're over the top. But you only live once! Celebrate it!

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!!!!!!!!!

8 April 2009 23:41:50 heehee

your teensy program is the first one to come up on google when i type "how many days been alive." congrats!

ps: nice code :)

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
