    Just for fun, I decided to calculate 100 years. PLEASE note that leap year occurs 25 times in 100 yrs and these figures reflect that. Hence, days being 36,525, NOT 36,500. Also, 3 out of 4 years are 52 weeks and one day. Leap year is 52 wks and 2 days.

    100 years equals
    1200 months
    5219 weeks and 6 days
    36,525 days
    876,600 hours
    52,596.000 minutes
    3,155,760,000 seconds

    I triple checked all of these calculations, especially the weeks

    If anyone wants to do some calculations of other time frames, feel free. :thumbsup::beerchug:

    How long is it? Longer than I plan to live.

    How long do you think you will live?

    I'm 65. Given my crappy state of health maybe 10 more years. That's probably 9 1/2 years longer than a lot of people are wishing for.

    I hope and pray your health improves and you live a lot longer.

    Regardless of how long anyone expects to live, anyone care to calculate some years?

    I try my best to gauge time in a volumetric fashion instead of linearly.
    Its difficult to do but when it works its fantastic.
    It works great for my dogs so I'm thinking they're really on to something.

    I appreciate the sentiment, I really do. But, I've had a good life and with the current state of affairs death sometimes seems to be a preferable option. And if you remember, I don't believe in an afterlife so I'm afraid your prayers would be better for someone who believes. Those prayers might make someone feel better even while they fall on imaginary ears.

    Welp, it appears that the current U.S. national debt, if paid off at a rate $1 per second, with no compounding interest (yeah I know that's silly, just roll with it), would take 629,250 years reach zero balance. :thumbsup:

    No politics intended or implied. Just the first big number I thought of.

    Well, there's not much reason to pay it off then because I'll bet that national debt that earth will be a distant memory in 629,250 years. NPI

    If nothing else, the big Yellowstone volcano should have gone off once and be due for another eruption about that time.

    37 of my 57 years have been bonus years. Some have been better than others, but they've all been on the right side of the grass. A few more would be cool, a few less and I wouldn't be writing this.

    Well, you're off a bit. 36,525/7=5217.857, or 5,217 weeks and 6 days. Everything else looks good.

    After a century, who's going to argue about a couple weeks though. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    :lurk:

    :D

    The weeks part is a little rough. There are few different ways and they come up just a little different.

    Well, clearly this thread went way off the tracks immediately. I suppose we'll have a very long and silly discussion about bacon now. :D

    I usually use these sort of calculations to put the last hour at work into perspective vs the rest of my career. Especially when talking to younger employees.

    Not sure how many ways there are. Start with days (36,525) and divide by 7, pretty straightforward.
