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:

Today is 17,103 for me!!! Now I have reason to celebrate....thanks, Bonkworld!!!!! I recall a similar celebration for a certain Abby at the Valley Vista, courtesy of her wonderful husband. Each day should be a celebration, and I am looking forward to celebrating many many more with the help of my friends at Bonkworld!!!

Charlotte, I think the days times 24 would give you a close approximation. If you really want to get it exact, you'd have to know the time you were born. Subtract the number of hours you missed on the day you were born (e.g., 1 hour if you were born at 1:00 am), then subtract the number of hours left in the day today. There you are: bingo. Hours alive.

Do I times days by 24 hours x7 days then x it by 4 weeks then by 12 to find out how many hours I been alive

Thanks guys, great site!

Dave: exactly! We get a pretty good-sized pile of days (barring catastrophe) but on the other hand, countable, finite, and way less than a million.

When you really think about the number of days you live or will live, to me it shows how short life is. So enjoy life everyday.

Just want to say thanks for this website. It is truly awesome.

19 December 2013 20:27:59 Coco

Maybe you should add the seconds day months minutes kind ok thing. That would be COOL!,,😝

Hi Brynn -- yeah, I thought of maybe putting in all the thousands, and it's not a bad idea, and it wouldn't really be hard to do. I was just thinking "major milestones" which I declared in my own head to be 5000 day blocks (after the first 5000). I didn't want to clutter the page up too much either, but I suppose I could "hide" the individual thousands by default, and give you an option to "show more thousands". Hm. OK, I'll put it on my to-do list. Thanks for the idea. More things to celebrate is always good right?

14 December 2013 09:12:35 Brynn

Hey can you put the rest of the thousands in? I mean that after 5 thousand it just skips to 10 and then 15 and so on so I was just wondering if you could put more numbers in between? I mean I know I could just do the math myself online, and you're probably doing that to save space, but it would still be cool to see on here.
Awesome website by the way!

shynisty; to figure out the number of hours you've been alive, just go down on the comments section and see Mirko's answer to my question.

This makes me feel old

12 November 2013 10:07:35 ahd

wow that was awesome

7 November 2013 14:16:00 shynisty

this is pretty stupid because it told me how many thousands of days ive been alive not the seconds or hours or minuets or even months

7 November 2013 14:13:05 shynisty

this is pretty weird how the computer figured out my whole liftime of thousands of days
