Birthday Calculator – in case you don't want to wait a whole year to celebrate being alive

We have a tradition where I live. We celebrate being alive with a party and that party generally coincides with being alive for another 31,557,600 seconds.  31,557,600 seconds happens to be just about equal to a solar year, which is a happy co-incidence as it’s not so easy to remember otherwise.

I decided I could really do with a good excuse to party before that arbitrary unit of time though.  The solution? Write a web application where I can put in my date of birth and it will tell me other dates that I can celebrate on.

Try it for yourself at http://birthday.sroot.eu and it will tell you amazing things like;

  • How old you would be if you were born on Mercury, Venus, Mars and the other planets in our solar system
  • When your next MegaSecond birthday is (so you can have a party when you survive another 1 million seconds of existence)
  • Or for a really big bash, celebrate the very infrequent in our lifetime GigaSecond birthdays.

If you’d like me to add another arbitrary repeating unit of time post a comment.
