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 IS A VERY STUPID WEB SIGHT THAT DID NOT HELP ME WITH GETTING MY TIME THAT I HAVE BEEN ALIVE

Christ! How did I not see that?! Fixed! Thanks DJ! (Clearly, such clever people come here...)

I would like this page a teensy weensy bit more if the letters in parenthesis after "Month" were MM instead of DD.

Hi Mirko, thanks for the feedback. Sorry to hear it's not working on your phone! We just overhauled the site and put it into a CakePHP framework, got rid of a bunch of Flash...it's supposed to work better on MORE devices now! I'll look into it and hopefully come up with a fix.

Good catch on "Capisce"! I'm changing it!

19 August 2013 06:55:46 Mirko

Great little routine. I use it every day (even tho' I know what it's going to be beforehand!) and store the result on my phone's calendar - helps make each day just that bit more meaningful (I'm in the 20,000s). But what's happened? Since you changed the web page, introducing the "Let 'er rip", I can no longer load it up on my Nokia C3-01 (I key in the usual date but it then keeps on loading up indefinitely) so have to do it on my desktop, which is a pain. Any suggestions?

Also, if you must use foreign words then please make sure they're correct. "Capiche" looks French but is meant to be Italian - in which case it should be "Capisce", pronounced ca-pee-shay. Sorry, but that makes you look like a linguistically-challenged soccer coach.

Wow. Russian spam. That's a new one.

5 Million Lines of code for a days alive calculator? I could do it with 50!

21 September 2012 23:09:57 Brendan

You guys are the best!

19 September 2012 20:08:55 Brendan

I was wrong it was 3,572.

Hi Brendan, thanks for visiting. It's actually not off by a day, it's a different calculation. I'll have to put this in bolder print somewhere since I've explained it here in the comments many times. The "Days Alive" calculator calculates the number of individual days you have been on the planet, NOT how many days OLD you are. There is a difference of...(drum roll please)...ONE DAY. For example, you're not one day old until 24 hours have passed, in other words, not until the second day of your life. So, the number of different days you've been here is two, but you are one day old. As for your other questions, well, I think just one day I wondered how many days I'd been alive and decided to make a way of figuring it out, and the website, I don't know, it seemed like a good idea to have a place to put our creative projects!

19 September 2012 16:56:38 Brendan

Hey I just thought of these questions.
1.Will you comment on my first post?
2.How did you come up with this idea?
3.How did you come up with this website?

19 September 2012 16:38:56 Brendan

It's off by a day, everythin else says 3,071. I'm nine, and I was born on 12-10-2002. So I did the math and I'm 117 months 9 days. That makes me 3,071 days old.

Today is the 6,447th day of my life, which is the greatest life that anyone has ever lived.

23 July 2012 18:07:44 Chloe

I found out that my 1000th day alive was my sister's first birthday!!! Thanks guys. This is a site I'm telling all my friends about! Love it.
