"When one by one our ties are torn,
and friend from friend is snatched forlorn;
When man is left alone to mourn,
oh! then how sweet it is to die!"
Anna Letitia Barabauld

Ah, I love email. I just get so darn excited when my email program chimes at me. Everyday I get hundreds of emails from people around the world, and let me say this. I'm scared. Real scared. Below are just a few examples of the kind of email I get. Every email is printed exactly as I got it, including all misspellings and insane ravings.

your predicitions seemed not based on any scietific calculation or astrological prediction u seem to use the same life span for everyone irrespective of any other essential thing

    Wow, you too have guessed my secret formula. Did it occur to you that my predictions are just for a GAME??

Dear Mr camden, I went on your "DEATH CLOCK" website today and I think it is VERY unappropreate! And very wrong. I think (as a request) that you take it off the web. What if people go on it and find out that their dad is going to die in 20 days, and they get all nevous and he doesn't die for 20 years? what are you goig to do? I'm a perfect example. Bye.

    Hmmm, so some people are worried that my site may actually kill people, and some people are worried that my site will be upsetting to those it doesn't kill. Sometimes you just can't please anybody.

What you may not be considering is that many, many people of questionable intelligence stumble upon your site, input their information and actually believe they are going to die on a specific date. You apparently don't understand the mental impact this can have on such a person and it can actually cause their death on that day.

You must be an intelligent person to have concocted this thing but given the fact that you can actually kill someone with your play toy, isn't it time you bury i?

    The Death Clock replies...

    So let me see if I understand you. You're saying that I shouldn't have this web site because stupid people may get confused. Errr... does this mean we should remove books from the library? (I mean everything above a fifth grade reading level.) Geeze, here is a crazy idea. If a person is stupid, don't let them sit in front of a computer. I guess that would be too much work, though. I mean, it would stink if someone had to be responsible for their own well being.

excuse me.....but I think this is horrible of u to do something like this. I NEED to know how you get these dates, and if this is really possible. Death is a really scary thing and ur a freaking jerk for making this, this could really scare some people, me included, thanks for ruining a 14 year olds life, greatly appriciated. I juts wanted to let you know I think ur sick, and u need some major help.

    The Death Clock replies...

    Considering how you spell, I think YOUR life was already ruined.

  1. You don't need to respond to this e-mail
  2. We came across your Death Clock web site via our 15 year old daughter and we are very unhappy that you are disturbing her and her friends. In their eyes you are propagating the truth about their own mortality which is making them anxious. As parents, we are not taken in by your shallow lies. Perhaps this is all just a bit of fun to you but you need to think about what you are doing and the influence that the internet has on young people.
  3. PS ... You can't predict death.

    The Death Clock replies...

    Wow, your 15 year old daughter didn't know about her own mortality? Better turn off the TV. She may see someone die. Better burn her school books. Just wait till she finds out that George Washington is dead. Or, even worse, that Romeo and Juliet die. She will be shocked, I'm sure. p.s. I never said I could predict death.
