I have maybe thirty years left on this earth before the drooling and flatulence begin and my caretaker starts buying Depends by the case. At 42,075,904 beats per year, I have somewhere around 1,262,277,120 beats of my heart remaining. That's ten or twenty shy of where I'd like that number to be.
Just how many of those precious bu-bumps do you think I'm going to devote to a deep thinker like this?
Update: Make that 1,262,277,072 ... and counting.
