Are my days numbered?

'Nomads to be first people wiped out by climate change' says a headline in the Mail and Guardian. So, perhaps, my 791,008,169 seconds (as of now) calculated by the Death Clock are a bit too optimistic. It seems as if there's no point to quitting my filthy fag habit.

If, perhaps, you have a morbid fascination with death, you may want to go here. After scaring yourself and rekindling your long dormant interest in religion, solace can be found here. And if you want to know more about that pic (beautiful, isn't it?), take a look here.

There is no death, simply a change of worlds - Chief Sealth (Chief Seattle). ;-)

P.S. - I LOVE that clock, that square in Prague is so beautiful, I was standing in front of that clock last year at this time.

Now this is a bit weird... and no I don't mean the subject matter... but your death clock gives you an exact date and I thought great that means you can start celebrating your death day (like in Harry Potter) before becoming a ghost - so much more fun... and then I realised that yesterday Jim and I had decided that for 2007 we were going to have an "unbirthday" each to celebrate in the same way as a birthday but without the nuisance of it always being in the same season... he used perl to calculate these randomly I got Decemeber 7th... so I can celebrate my unbirthday just before you celebrate your death day... and the more I think about it the more unbirthday means death day... argh!

Perhaps it's time to install that aircon. Maybe you can put off the inevitable.

J. David Zacko-Smith: I like the idea of changing worlds although I suspect there isn’t one to change to.

Caroline: Oddly enough, I posted this after watching the film ‘Ghost’ for the first time. I thoroughly enjoyed it even though not a fan of Demi Moore. Despite the film implying lots about death, birth and unbirth, I don’t think it influenced me into posting about death.

kyknoord: Do I want to?

Alan: Buying me drinks with it instead. And cigarettes too!

nyasha: I don’t have a pension so I’m going to have to party hard and die before retiring.

You really don't think you were even slightly influenced by Ghost?

I remember really liking it the first time I saw it but not so much when we saw a repeat recently.

Caroline, you could be right, of course. Perhaps too much of a coincidence?

Yes being influenced doesn't count as a synchronicity!

BTW did you notice that I'd mentioned this posting in my blog?
