The Simpsons Will Eat Your Life

I noticed while writing this blog a few days ago that the title sequence to The Simpsons takes about a minute to run. That got me thinking: I’ve watched a lot of The Simpsons, so exactly how much of my life have I spent humming along with that tune?

… So I built a script to work it out. And then to work it out for everyone else too. And then add up the cumulative loss of time throughout our lives (based on an average age of 20). And then I decided to figure out how many years of human life have been spent watching the title sequence to The Simpsons globally. And then I stopped, because any more would have been a bit silly.

As always, if you like this then please pass it on 🙂

A quick reminder, if you’re buying anything from Amazon, please use the links on the bottom of my site pages because I really could do with the money! When you start a shopping trip to Amazon .com/.co.uk using one of my search boxes then I get 5% of whatever you buy on that journey. Thanks!

I’m still busily working away on the new game site that I’m building and it’s coming along well. I hope that a beta version will be available for trial runs inside the next couple of weeks, until then it’s still a secret what I’m up to!
