Dead or Alive?

My 10 year old son and I were watching the movie, "Stuart Little" today where I saw the actor Dabney Coleman playing a doctor. I've always liked him since I saw him in, "The Incredible Shrinking Woman" and " 9 to 5". I hadn't seen him in a while so I wondered if he was even still alive. That got me over to the computer to start googling. Don't ask me why, I just was curious.

I then stumbled upon the website, Dead or Alive. Ever seen this site? You can look up anyone that is famous to find out if they are still living. According to that site, Dabney Coleman is alive and is 76 years old. Haha. But what caught me about that site is the other things you can do on it.

For instance, I found out that I have been alive ~14,487 ~days! That's a lotta days. I'm old I know. I also learned that I've outlived Martin Luther King, Jr by 163 days,
Bob Marley by 1,244 days
and Marilyn Monroe by 1,273 days.
Aaaand, if I live for 37 more days, I will have outlived Malcom X.

Wanna see how many days you have lived? Or who you have outlived? Check it out here.
Oh, Pam and Holly- I was right about the guy who played McDreamy's father in, "Made of Honor" that we just saw for our GNO. It was Sydney Pollack and he just died on May 26th. See? I know my dead people.

I guess I could have saved this post for Halloween huh? It's kind of morbid I know, but I bet you will all check it out regardless right? Hee hee.
