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):

Love this site! I've got my 10,000th anniversary coming up in 5 days and the "Holy crap!" comment is cute. And, now I know that this Christmas I'll be 20,000! Whee! Let's go to Vegas, baby!

This is really cool :) And just thought I'd let you guys know that your website is pretty cool. Especially when I have nothing to do :3

(Props to you for the above to! "Cute message though" Oooh, makes me laugh every time)

Thanks for posting, Dave. I would certainly agree it's not good enough to "just multiply full years by 365.25" and what a relief that that is not what we do here at The Bonkworld Organization. We use the built-in PHP date function, which can tell you if the year of a given date is a leap year, and then there's lots of other clever checking of various other things. Also, I took your advice and checked a calendar. Guess what? 2000 *was* a leap year, and there *was* a February 29! So it turns out we're not a day off after all. Remember: it's always best to check your facts before being arrogantly snotty. Cute message though.

You might want to add a five million and first line of code -- there was no February 29th, 2000. Check a calendar. However, it accepts this as a valid birthdate. And because that date appears in the lives most everyone over 11 years of age, you need to recheck your figures... you're a day off. It's not good enough to just multiply full years by 365.25. Cute idea, though.

Glad to see so many people enjoying the Calculator. Not sure what 'wiseking' is worrying about with regard to identity theft, but if we here at bonkworld industries were clever enough to steal people's identities based on a date and an IP address, and we were evil, well, I suppose we'd be working for the NSA or something. And we're not! But I do recommend that if you leave a comment, don't reveal your address, credit card, social security number, favorite password, and mother's maiden name!

y'all realize you've just happily given yourselves up to identity theft

Correction... I was wrong and your script was right. And excel does match it. :)

28 September 2011 11:06:19 Matthew Doucette

P.S. I mean leap years as in more than just every 4, as year 2000 was not a leap year, 2400 will be, etc.

28 September 2011 11:05:11 Matthew Doucette

Are you forgetting about leap years? Do the same calculation in Excel and it's off. You should have it exactly right if you are claiming an exact day count.
