Want to know how much time you’ve got left? Then enter your birth date and gender at http://www.deathclock.com and discover your projected date of death. (If you were born, say, on March 16, 1969, and are male, you will die on Dec. 26, 2042, based on the average lifespan. That’s less than 1.4 billion seconds away.) The Death Clock bills itself as “the Internet’s friendly reminder that life is slipping away,” but the latest issue of P.O.V. magazine considers the terrifying ticker to be one of the worst sites on the Web. Furthermore, the Death Clock does not take into account family history, smoking habits and other longevity factors.
