I Guess You Think You're In The Movies Somewhere

Do you feel like you're living in a movie?

Title aside, this post really has nothing to do with the Bad Brains. Oh well, I guess now it does.

In this case, the movie is a metaphor for a human life span. At your age, where are you in your life? Try this calculator. Enter your birthday, the age at which you expect to die, and choose a movie. It will show you exactly where you would be in the movie, according to where you are in your life expectancy. I prefer to envision my life as a screening of Star Wars.

I found the experience of using the calculator kind of creepy because you have to forecast your own death. I probably should have just used the average age, but that's kind of mean.
