Memento Mori

Consider this an early All Soul's Day post. I'm afraid that I'll forget all about it once the end of October rolls around. If I do remember, maybe I'll post about it again.

I found a thought-provoking, intriguing, slightly disturbing and probably not very accurate site called Death Clock. Basically you put in your stats (height, weight, age, smoking status, gender, temperment) and it gives you the exact date of your death, complete with a clock counting down the seconds you have to live.

As I said, thought provoking, intriguing and slightly disturbing. But, in reality, we all do have a "death clock". We just don't have the url for it!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
