Dead at your age

Thanks to Jennie for the weirdest waste of my time ever!

She blogged today about THIS site, which, bizarrely, will tell you who you have outlived by length of life if you input your birthday. I have never heard of any of these punters, but like I say, it’s a Friday afternoon.

Let me know what your results are! 😀

 

You are 33 years and 157 days old today.

You’ve outlived Geremi González by almost three weeks. He was a Major League Baseball pitcher who played for the Cubs and the Brewers. He died of injuries from a lightning strike on May 25, 2008, when you were 32 years old.
You’ve outlived Lester Bangs by almost three weeks. He was a journalist, musician and music critic best known for his work in “Rolling Stone” magazine. He died of an accidental overdose of Darvon and Valium on April 30, 1982, when you were 6 years old.

John Wilmot was more than a month younger than you when he died of syphilis and alcoholism on July 26, 1680. He was a friend of King Charles II, libertine, and author of satiric and bawdy poetry. He died 296 years before you were born.

You’ve outlived Kay Kendall by about 2 months. She was a film actress who won a Golden Globe award for her role in “Les Girls” (1957). She died of myeloid leukemia on September 6, 1959, 17 years before you were born.

Carole Lombard was about 2 months younger than you when she died in an airplane accident on January 16, 1942. She was a popular actress in the 1930s who was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for “My Man Godfrey” (1936). She died 34 years before you were born.

    Bangs was a great music journalist – watch the film Almost Famous for reference 🙂

    You’ve outlived Heath Ledger by more than a month. He was an Australian heartthrob who starred in “The Patriot” (2000) and “A Knight’s Tale” (2001). He died of an accidental overdose of prescription meds on January 22, 2008, when you were 27 years old.

    What’s the deal with this story and that Olsen twin? His maid found the body and called her first or something like that – I dunno, something like that – any takers?

    Should be interesting to see his last film as it’s a Gilliam film and they are ALWAYS interesting films – more so off-screen than on as always something affects the film. Case in point, Lost in La Mancha about his ruined Don Quixote film…

    LOL Phil, I am glad someone has heard of him, as you know, that kind of thing isn’t really my strong suit! 😀

    “You are 39 years and 64 days old today.

    At your exact age, Louis VIII of France died of dysentery. He was a Royalty – King of France 1223-26.”

    Hmmm…. 😀

    Must be one of the few French aristocracy not to be executed. I wonder which is worse- execution or dysentery!!!
