Guestblog: Obit of the day

Found this yesterday while getting sidetracked tumbling 🙂 but its brilliant and really interesting if you like historic information about both celebrities and normal average people.

Obit of the Day
Looking at the unique lives that have shuffled off this mortal coil. OOTD is the most popular obituary blog on Tumblr.

Obit of the Day: Death Watch

This is Tikker. It’s “the wristwatch that counts down your life.” A Kickstarter project created by Rebecca DeRosa, owners will fill out a questionnaire and based on your current age, health, and other relevant pieces of personal information you are given your estimated time left on Earth.
Tikker’s goal is to remind the user of how much time they have left and “to make the most of it, AND TO BE HAPPY!” As of October 10, 2013 the Kickstarter has surpassed its goal of $25,000 and has nearly 1000 backers.
Oh, “and it also tells time.”
