Do you like feeling small and insignificant? Are you interested in knowing when you will die? Do you want to know how many people with your name have died? And at what age?

Welcome to the Database of the Dead!

The Database of the Dead contains the name of every person who has died in the United States since 1936, and you can type in your name and find out how many people with that name have already died! Exciting!

There are 0 Dustin Rowles who have died. I do know there’s one other Dustin Rowles in America — he’s a neo-Nazi who lives in Portland, Indiana (as opposed to Portland, Maine, where I live). Here’s hoping he shows up on the Database of the Dead before I do.

But there’s more! Besides being able to find out who else with your name has died, you can find out the average lifespan of people with your name. The average lifespan of people with the last name of Rowles, for instance, is 71. That’s pretty good! The average lifespan of people with the name of Dustin is … 22.

Oh shit.

Ironically, I was named after a Dustin who died at around the age of 22 when he jumped out of a plane and his parachute didn’t open.

I will never go skydiving. Ever.

Want to find out your statistics? Check out the Database of the Dead, and report your findings back here in the comments. Whoever has the shortest lifespan wins a very chilling victory!
