Countdown Watch

A while back whenever I was asked to do something I really really didn’t want to do on a Saturday, I’d remind the requester of how many Saturdays I had left in my life and that I didn’t want to waste a single one because there were so few. I based my number on a guess at my age of death, so as of now I’m at around 1,248. Doesn’t sound like that many. So that reminded me of this awesome idea for a “Countdown Watch” on boingboing.

I would buy this thing in a heartbeat. With one of my last heartbeats. I really would though – I’d wear it everyday (I hate wearing a watch) and I think it’d really help me to say “No” to things I really didn’t want to do, knowing how few the amount of days I had left were.
