New Website Predicts Number of Times You May See Your Parents Before They Pass Away

The site, seeyourfolks.com, makes use of life expectancy data released by the World Health Organization in 2011 to calculate the average life span of a person. You are asked to enter what country your parents live in, their ages and the number of times you meet them in a year. For example, if your mother and father are 50 years old and you see them once a week, then the site predicts that you will see them 1,560 times before they die.

Stating that one of the main goals of the website is to help people focus on what matters the most, the designers wrote, "We believe that increasing awareness of death can help us to make the most of our lives. The right kind of reminders can help us to focus on what matters, and perhaps make us better people."
