Does your birth certificate have an expiration date?

Would you want to know when you were going to die?

Let's see, I was born in rural South Carolina at the end of Jim Crow, what do you think my birth certificate says?

BIRTH OF A WHITE CHILD

That would take all the fun out of it, now wouldn't it.

Although, thinking about it a little more, if this were the case, I bet you'd hear a lot more of that famous redneck phrase: "Hey Clem, watch this!"

To quote Arnold Rimmer on the tv show Red Dwarf.

At least you get to know when you are going to die. All most people get are "mind that bus", "what bus?". <SPLAT>

I am going to die between the ages of 0 and infinity. That is all I need to know.

Actually, I am going to die when I am riding my bike. That's going to be the only way I will go. I will die riding my bicycle and they will have to pry the handlebars out of my cold, dead hands.

I really wouldn't want to know. I've come to think that I enjoy life much better living in the moment, completely ignorant of such things....

just because of that, I am going to have my stem welded to my steerer and handlebars. You will have to make a special coffin for me so I can stay on my bike, even in death . Who knows. My legs may STILL be going around after 40 years of being dead.

My birth certificate doesn't seem to have an expiration date. However, my marriage license does. You know, " 'til death do us part."

I'd say it's a pretty solid bet none of us will live past 115.

Speak for yourself......

I have it on good authority (A fortuneteller), that I'll die at 157, of a heart attack induced by being chased around my desk by a frisky 19 year old coed looking for a better grade

They don't put it on the birth certificate. You'll have to pull out your certificate of death to find it.

(PS, no I wouldn't really want to know)
my prediction:
At age 24 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.

My prediction:

VegaVixen: At age 94 you will die from an equipment malfunction in an exciting, fear based reality game show. Your death will receive the highest ratings of any episode of any reality show, ever.




And to think I hate reality TV shows!
