Happy birthday! Though this is a somewhat macabre way of announcing it.

Happy birthday!

Does the above take into account how you are a bike-riding, non-smoking vegetarian?

Happy Birthday! May your next year be enjoyable, fulfilling, and challenging.

Nice to see someone has a more optimistic probably lifespan projection than I – though at least I don’t generally think about it! Aren’t we mortal enough without admitting to it?

The years from 0 to 5 don’t count at all (I can’t remember a thing from that time). Nor do the years from 5-10. The years from 10-19ish are generally best not remembered.

As such, the vast majority of the good part of life remains. Enjoy it.

That’s what I like.. a good dose of morbid reality, delivered in Pie Chart form! How else does one endeavor to celebrate one’s birthday?

I hope I get to share some of your pie with you.

Have a marvelous, marvelous day.

I didn’t intend for the chart to be morbid or macabre. I just like representing data visually.

Thank you all for the good wishes.

Happy Birthday! I hope there is cake to accompany the cake-shaped (why pie? what an arbitrary convention) graphic.

“Whatever became of the moment when one first knew about death? There must have been one. A moment. In childhood. When it first occurred to you that you don’t go on forever. It must have been shattering, stamped into one’s memory. And yet, I can’t remember it. What does one make of that? We must be born with an intuition of mortality. Before we know the words for it, out we come with the knowledge that for all the compasses in the world, there’s only one direction, and time its only measure.”
