Predicting Death

Death - comes to all. Nobody is spared. What if, you know the day you will die? What if you knew how? Would you take efforts to avoid it? Chances are high that you'd end up doing more harm. OK, am not talking about the movie 'Final Destination' or something. But knowing our future has always been interesting. Many of those who say astrology (Indian or Greek) is a waste of time, can't wait to read the weekly predictions for their zodiac in the local paper. Its because we are all cowards. We want to know in advance what the future holds for us. We aren't ready to face the challenges that lie ahead.

Yamraj, death

Wait, I didn't mean this post to be philosophical. Just wanted to share with you an online death predictor.

Try it. Its fun!
Here are some of the results myself and my friends got:

"Vidhya Shankar: At age 35 you will become lost during a road trip and wind up living out the movie 'Wrong Turn'. Sorry for ya."

Kalyan*: At age 40 you will die fighting the Interplanetary War on Terrorism on Camp Harmony, Venus.

Ambika*: At age 47 a group of children will text message you continuously for three years, eventually distracting you while driving and causing a fatal wreck; your fatal wreck. (SMS a mixed blessing?!)

Kunal*: At age 72 you will fall into a vat of neutral shoe polish, and your body will never be recovered

Aparna*: At age 69 you will have a heart attack while eating a deep-fried peanut butter and banana sandwich, Elvis style.

Vishal*: At age 70 you will participate in the newest reality game show. Contestants battle each other in an arena with swords and spears. You will have a good run (12+ victories) but eventually be killed, much to the audience's dismay. Go Maximus!

* Names changed to protect privacy

Give it a try and tell me what you got.

PS: If you want a more serious prediction try this

Special thanks to Kunal and Ambika

I surely wanna take part in the reality show... makes me think of Gladiator.. I wanna say 'To die with honour!'

LVS said...

@janani

Janani said...

i can't die 'thAt' easily...the dogs may not go home...but i surely will!

Vishal said...

Ok.. i rephrase..

I'm 70 but still I wanna die with honour!

Anuradha said...

Anuradha: At age 47 you will realize that you actually died three years earlier, and have been dreaming all the events since then.

(day-dreaming????)

RukmaniRam said...

"RukmaniRam: At age 39 you will choke on a steak"

LVS said...

@janani

@anuradha

LOL!

LVS said...

@ambika
thank you! and do come to my funeral, since am not sure if I will be able to invite you then :P

@archana

thanks for dropping by

Kunal Janu said...

"We are all cowards" ?!?
That's a harsh statement.. everyone reads their future in the local newspaper just for feeling good about it..

I look at both the sun sign and the moon sign.. Whatever has good for me is my future.. :P

Kunal Janu

LVS said...

@Kunal

well I tend to agree with astrology more than astrologers and the followers...

agreed, it was a strong statement..but hey, as i said this ain't a philosophical post

Nautankey said...

Hilarious I shud say... I got this - At age 36 you will die fighting the Global War on Terrorism in Spain. :D :D

LVS said...

@nautankey

Archana dies in the same battle at age 57. If your ages are roughly the same, then perhaps Spain will have two Global Wars on Terrorism. That's something to worry about!
