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 cant feel the big numbers it knows
I guess its 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 theres the problem of having so few
and really its days we have, thats what were spending
and every day we get one brand spanking new
So dont 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 theres bound to be some filled with crap
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 youre not one day old until 24 hours have passed, i.e., until the next day. Capisce?
This site makes you realise the good side of the world wide web. Being alive for 15,570 days makes me realise that that at 42 going on 43 years old means Im still young :-D. Heres to the next 1000 years (if only 😉 ).
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, youd 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.

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.
Hi Brynn — yeah, I thought of maybe putting in all the thousands, and its not a bad idea, and it wouldnt 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 didnt 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, Ill put it on my to-do list. Thanks for the idea. More things to celebrate is always good right?
20 July 2018: Its the next day!
