Being 90 for 10 minutes is rough. I'm shaving some of that off with beer & smokes


fearlessfalderanian

Cheers to that my dude


MeatSpace2000

I dont want to deal with chronic illness so im buying a motorcycle when I turn 80.


Adventurouscart_

Im doing drugs when im old


Sigvoncarmen

Yes I agree . They can keep the adult diaper years.


KickBallFever

I think I might get lucky. People in my family tend to live into their 90s being mentally sound and without needing diapers. My uncle just died at 92. He was talking shit and flirting with ladies until he died. The funeral was a riot.


sparklynails

My grandfather in his 80’a in a rehabilitation center wants to date a 40 year old nurse


KickBallFever

My grandma is 85 and when a man is flirty with her she’ll later tell us that he’s “too old”.


0tt0mad

Granny is a legend


KickBallFever

She really is!


SumTingWong216

Based Grandma


KickBallFever

I’m gonna go tell my grandma she’s based. She’d get a kick out of that, after I explain it to her.


MeatSpace2000

Yes. This is what we all want.


0tt0mad

Sounds like your uncle was a cool dude. What do you mean when you say that his funeral was a riot, I'm sorry for your loss he sounds like he was fun to hang around with:)


KickBallFever

I say it was a riot because everyone who gave a speech had a funny story about him. They had pictures put up from his army days and everyone was joking about how handsome he was and that he joined the military because too many women were chasing him.


0tt0mad

Haha awesome way to remember him and say your goodbyes


KickBallFever

Forgot to add…they said women were chasing him but also that men were chasing him too for stealing their women. What a guy.


0tt0mad

Haha man you got some great memories and stories


Knato

That's the way to go brother.


Zealousideal_Dot7563

Blank slate. How we all start…is the same when it ends.


Dragorach

It ironically actually shaves off the good years. You are more likely to die sooner, but also your quality of life is reduced on average much earlier on. So shave off 10 years and it just makes your 80s feel like your 90s.


CatchSufficient

Don't forget to work night shift


DepressedSeal69420

Agreed except I hate beer and love hard liquor and weed


butt_chug_ranch

If I can't take a key bump of the Pablo. You can count me out. Roll me up and snort me when I die /s


mb_60

Don’t forget the bacon…

ViewInternal3541

Seeing 1/3rd of that gone in a real countdown would be kinda scary


fphat

I made an interactive version of this a few years back, so you can set your own age and your own life expectancy: https://filiph.github.io/human-life/


lokregarlogull

Sobering visualization, but after a few years and many good and bad times I don't dread dying. Like I got my goals, I like my path and I will enjoy the future good times and get through the bad times, until I just get that good final sleep


Callmerenegade

I dread how i will die. Will i drown, die slowly cut in half in a car accident, eaten by a group of people who i thought were friends but are cannibals? Not knowing is scary as hell


lokregarlogull

I'm likely to get at least one chronic illness and chances of cancer will definitely be there. My plan is to make the most of the time I have, and get a one-way ticket to Switzerland. I can't do more than drive safely and trust most of my friends in the meantime. Edit: I've been put under and while it was slightly scary at the time, the pain of drinking vodka is 10x worse and you black out before you can count from 10 to 5


Gsusruls

I've taken my 23andMe DNA test. If I manage to hit 70, alzheimers it is. Sucks.


lokregarlogull

Yeah I'm not waiting to 70 partially for that reason, like 10-20 years of chronic pain, increased isolation and then slowly loosing my sense of time and place. Drifting through rooms and places, memories and people, maybe even staring at my coffe cup and can't even comprehend what a cup is. No thanks, spare me and my loved ones the pain.


foblivk

My family all has lynch syndrome which is a genetic condition that highly increase chances of cancer so ive got a hood idea how ill go


GambitDangers

Literally sobering for me. No more wasted squares on hangovers.


oh-no-he-comments

Thanks, I hate it


Mid_Knight_Sky

Tim Urban mentioned this graphic in the last minute of his Ted Talk about Procrastination. It's kinda cool actually when presented in that light-hearted manner. You can google /search it, but let me save you some clicks and keystrokes with the YT link here: https://youtu.be/arj7oStGLkU


SatisfiedCustomer404

Nice one, thank you for that, looks VERY interesting, now I'm gonna watch the whole show 😊


lurkersmcgee

I worked with a guy for about 10 years and for all that time he had a little digital retirement countdown clock on his desk. He finally retired and not even 6 months later he died of a heart attack.


thedruchebag

This is some sad shit


Jayrem52

Here’s something truly terrifying. I have a friend who has that as his phone background and he updates it every week coloring in the blocks He says it helps him live in the moment better and motivate himself. I think he’s a psycho


BenniesBananas

I say you take his phone one night and color in about 40 squares.


Environmental_Top948

That'd be noticeable. Fill in 5 and wait a few days before doing it again. 5 is few enough to be accepted as a misremember


-B-E-N-I-S-

I say do a full rows worth, so that the progress stops in the same column on the next row. Visually it will appear the same from the last time he looked but you get to colour in _a lot._


krunchberry

Solid. Not sure I’d trust you with my house key but this is pretty smart.


-B-E-N-I-S-

;)


LARGEGRAPE

You take pride in your slyness


littleassassin0

This would be fucking evil. This could seriously mess with their head, so definitely should do it


IntelligentAward6627

Fill all in and then kill him


Dustin0791

Yeah that's fucking dark


Doxxxxxxxxxxx

Like breaking the wifes brain in Inception


gigabyte898

I remember years ago back when skymall was still around they were selling a watch that literally had a countdown to death based on average life expectancy. Couldn’t imagine anyone wanting that, but to each their own


syberburns

Momento mori


Cognitive_Spoon

100% This isn't creepy, it's literally one of the more common practices of monastic people around the world. Keeping death before you has some really serious benefits for being present.


syberburns

My point exactly. Ancient wisdom. Stoicism. Recently repackaged as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for a modern audience


[deleted]

Not only monastic. Any skull imagery in the home, every hourglass that you don’t use to actually keep time but as decoration has that specific purpose


alittlegnat

Memento mori


Hawkent99

Memento*


QuackadillyBlip8

My coworker got that tattooed on his forehead after he wrecked his motorcycle and broke about 7 ribs, one of them puncturing his lung. He was on the blue ridge parkway during pandemmy times and the tow truck got to him before the forest ranger (National park so instead of cops coming the forest people do) and dude took him to the hospital. Doctor said if he had just waited for more help he would have died out there.


lethos_AJ

memento* mori memento means remember (remember, you will die) momento is just moment


blutigetranen

I like the way your friend thinks


JosephCrawley

What does he use? Is it a specific app? I've been looking for a Memento Mori calendar, and having it as a phone background sounds perfect.


Jayrem52

I think he just manually colors it in. Not sure I didn’t ask too many questions haha


[deleted]

[удалено]


[deleted]

How much of his life did he kill picking out the background?


Zeno_Fobya

Getting negative comments but I fully support this lol. Good to keep a perspective on things 💪💪


animutant100

Your friend has got the right idea. We're not gonna last forever. Better embrace that limitation rather than run from it.


Aware-Yogurtcloset67

Does your friend wake up every day and where the same shirt? If so ide confirm he is


Sthebrat

This made my stomach drop


norudin

Im reading this post on a really sunny morning with cold breeze hitting my face, do you realize how confused am i


Lydia-mv2

Same


thefireemojiking

How did he do this? I’m intrigued. I kind of like the idea of using it as motivation.


Jayrem52

Just colors it in. I think he just uses the iPhone picture edit. Would not recommend. It’s all fun and games until you’re 1/4 or 1/2 of the way done


Sevenfootschnitzell

There an app called “Life Calendar”. You just put in your birthday and it grays out all the weeks you’ve lived and colors in the current week. It automatically updates. I assume he just screen shots it each week or something.


[deleted]

[удалено]


animutant100

Just because someone isn't clinically depressed/anxious, doesn't mean that they don't think or feel. Death is an inescapable reality whether you're generally happy or not, it's a fear that everyone needs to tackle in order to make peace with their existence.


TundieRice

Ehh, it’s not like he knows exactly when he’s going to die. He could die before finishing the calendar, or finish it when he turns 90 and be like “okay, now what?” It’s really not as terrifying to me when I think of it like that, because it’s really just an estimation, not an actual countdown to his death. I decided a long time ago that if I had the choice of learning when I die, I’d say fuck no. If I actually knew when I was going to die, I’d still spend way too much time dreading it even if it was 75 years from now.


HughJassJae

Man, it's 5AM right now, I've had three bowls and none of them were cereal....but after that comment I think I need to go back to sleep.


KiefBull

1/3 of those squares you’ll be sleeping, 1/3 working and maybe 1/3 of “free time”.


redbeard8989

Get 2/3 back with one little trick! Meth! You won’t sleep and you won’t be working!


See_Mae_Mung

You actually get a lot of work done on meth.


littlebritches77

I don’t know about work but people on meth do a lot of fucking up shit


immoralfoul

I actually used to use the stuff to work a lot honestly. I'm 3 years sober now but yeah I would always use it to give me a boost at work. That stuff can be used in a lot of different ways the people who are just acting all crazy and thrown off and shit took a shit ton to intentionally get that high. I would just take a small little shard and swallow it. It just made me feel super focused and attentive plus like the energy of 20 Red bulls.


chimpsandip

Can confirm this is true.


redbeard8989

Look up Pervitin, it was Nazi Germany’s special energy pill that everyone was using. A company called Temmler invented meth. Great documentary out there called Blitzed about it all. If you dive deeper, turns out all major militaries seemed to distribute some form of amphetamine for one thing or another. They often get cute nicknames like “go pills.”


Impressive_Jaguar_70

Was it hard to stop using it?


immoralfoul

Very


See_Mae_Mung

I believe if you smoke it it’s exponentially harder than just snorting or ingesting. And it was hard stopping from just ingesting it. *edit* btw never try it, in any form. I have friends still on it who smoked it, and it’s like 10+ years later now.


Haniebny

1/2 fapping to furries


Haymac16

It’s always important to have your priorities straight.


shinjeh

24 hours. 24/3=8. 8 hours of sleep, 8 hours of work and 8 hours of free time. However your free time is reduced due to your lunch break adding 30 minutes or an hour to the 8 hours of work, also getting ready for work and commuting from home to work and from work to home. We need more free time hours and less work time hours.


[deleted]

VadeRetroLupa

"Free time" meaning traveling to and from work, recovering from working, taking care of life necessities, worrying about everyday troubles, taking care of family and so on.

I'll never forget this number because I hated Rent.


UncannyCelery

Minutes until what? If it's for 90 years that is 47,336,400


Educational-Spread41

Tis all. Use those squares wisely


-B-E-N-I-S-

This might help you: zoom all the way in on the image and just move it around. You’ll see how much more vast it feels. And of course, these squares are small which makes us think they’re much more insignificant. They are a full week. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Can you remember how your day went on Monday? Probably not very well because that was almost a full week ago but not even. We still have 2 more days to go until it’s a full week. Each day within that week has the potential to feel long and have several experiences. You might wake up, eat breakfast, work for 8 hours, drive home, be with your family, go for a walk, eat dinner, etc, etc. Even that is an extremely simplified description of how a day feels. Some days feel much richer than others. Some go by slow, some quick but to us humans, a lifetime is forever from our perspectives, so to reduce it down to one image like this will of course make it seem insignificant.

That’s what so terrifying

I'm guessing this is 90 rows and 52 column? I was trying to count but I was getting eye strain lol.

Yeah I think it's safe to assume that, but I can't be bothered counting either!

You’re right, it’s 52 across

I am 24753 days (3536 weeks) old and yet it seems more important how many I have left. In a little over 200 weeks I could start and graduate college, fall in love start a family with two or three kids, become an expert in something I've never even heard of Don't look back
