Where are you in the movie? is a cool (and kinda scary) way to look at your life…
If we started a movie on the day you were born, and stretched it over your lifespan, this is where you’d be in that movie. So if you’re a teenager, you might see Luke arguing with Uncle Owen, or Cameron making a phony phone call to Ed Rooney. If you’re a retiree, you might see the Marshmallow Man, or Toto pulling away the curtain. And if you’re in your mid-thirties, you might be relieved to know that Ferris is still eating lunch, and the Millenium Falcon hasn’t left Tatooine.
To get the lifespan for comparison, you can use the How Long Will I Live? calculator. In my case that’s 80.5 years. I chose the Wizard of Oz and am currently just arriving at the Emerald City.
In Ghost Busters, I’m at the Yes, have some scene.
In Star Wars, I’m not quite at Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?
