Calculating your upcoming Life Crises Events

A friend of mine was having their quarter-life crisis (apparently it's a thing), which happens around the age of 25, so unfortunately I've missed mine already. This got me thinking about all the life crises that I've already missed and have coming up. I wanted to make a script that given my birthday would let me know all about my life crises. Have a 2/7th life crisis party or something, who knows.

So there's the obvious mid-life crisis, which happens around your 40's. Let's assume a lifespan is 100 years, then let's find our mid-life and quarter-life crisis times. On top of that, why not our 1/3 and 2/3 life crises? or even 3/5th of 5/7th. Also, let's put this on a little HTML5/javascript web page that will provide to-the-second accurate estimates for upcoming crises.

Needless to say, this is probably not what one should do when a friend is having a life crisis (they weren't entirely as enthusiastic about this script as I was). Anyway, never let an opportunity to practice some web dev skills go to waste.

Play with the live page here at It will let you input your birthday and based on the current date will let you know the time till each life crisis to the second.
