    The watch that counts down to your death!

    Saw this on Kickstarter, You answer questions about your lifestyle and it calculates when you will die! Tikker so speaking as a Heroin using cave diving drinker of full fat milk I should be in borrowed time any day now! I am not clear if it is compulsory to top yourself if the counter reaches zero?

    Re: The watch that counts down to your death!

    I remember seeing one a few years ago that had some message printed on the face.
    Something like "Each minute is one less"....Or something along those lines.
    But this one takes it to the ninth level...I don't like it...It's digital.

    This seems like such a bad idea haha. I agree with lbf, the digital display just makes it that much more creepy.

    Aside from that, it looks pretty low-quality and difficult to use.

    I don't need to know when. Surely this is enough?

    Re: The watch that counts down to your death!

    It's not well-known, but this watch was the result of the first successful kickstarter by a cat:
    Cat predicts 50 deaths in RI nursing home - Telegraph




    Dr David Dosa, a geriatrician and assistant professor at Brown University, said that five years of records showed Oscar rarely erring, sometimes proving medical staff at the New England nursing home wrong in their predictions over which patients were close to death. The cat, now five and generally unsociable, was adopted as a kitten at the Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre in Providence, Rhode Island, which specialises in caring for people with severe dementia.



    Dr Dosa first publicised Oscar's gift in an article in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2007. Since then, the cat has gone on to double the number of imminent deaths it has sensed and convinced the geriatrician that it is no fluke.



    The tortoiseshell and white cat spends its days pacing from room to room, rarely spending any time with patients except those with just hours to live.


    If kept outside the room of a dying patient, Oscar will scratch on the door trying to get in.
    ..While presumably the patient screams in terror.

    You can also check out deathclock.com (It does go down now and then) as another resource if predicting impending doom is important to you.

    As if we need further reminding. Each of my watches, and clocks, are all tic tacing there way to my end so they can go to someone else (most likely my son) and begin the process anew.
    For, we are here for a while and we are only the caretakers of these beloved machines. We wind and oil then look and love. In the end, we go so they may once again find a person to help pass their time......
