Everyone wants to know how we can predict death. Tell me this. Do you ask
pilots to explain aerodynamics before boarding the plane or do you simply
travel to your destination?
I urge you to not concern yourselves with how we
know about the deaths and instead focus on how you’ll live your life. Your
final destination may be closer than you think.
—Joaquin Rosa, creator of Death-Cast
July 30, 2010
Death-Cast might call at midnight, but it won’t be the first time someone tells
me I’m going to die.
For the past few years I’ve been fighting for my life because of a severe
heart condition, straight scared that I might drop dead if I live it up too hard.
Then an organization called Death-Cast appeared out of nowhere and claimed
they could predict when—not just if—we’re about to die.
It sounded like the
premise of a short story I’d write. Real life never hooks me up with wins like
that. But everything got really real, real fast when the president of the United
States held a press briefing where he introduced the creator of Death-Cast and
confirmed their abilities to predict our fates.
That night, I signed up for Death-Cast.
Now I’m just hoping I won’t be one of the first to get an inaugural End
If I am, at least I’ll know it’s game over, I guess.
Until then, I’m going to live it up.
And that starts with attending a once-in-a-lifetime event: the Death-Cast
Death-Cast is hosting so many parties across the country, I think to lift
people’s spirits and get them hyped about this program that will change life
and death as we know it. They’re already underway in so many places, like
the Santa Monica Pier in California and Millennium Park in Chicago and the
National Museum of the United States Air Force in Ohio and Sixth Street in
Austin, to name a few.
Of course I’m at the best one—Times Square, the
heart of New York and home to the first Death-Cast offices. I love my city,
but you’d never catch me out in Times Square on New Year’s Eve—it’s way
too cold to do all that. But I’m chill hanging out on this hot summer night for
something so historic.
It’s wild how much bank Death-Cast must be dropping across the
country. Or even in Times Square alone. These jumbotrons are always
promoting a million things at once, everything from soda products to TV
shows to new web addresses, but not tonight. Every screen has been replaced
with a digital black hourglass with a radiant white background.
is almost full, signaling the End Day calls that will begin at midnight. But it
feels bigger than that. It’s almost like the product that Death-Cast is pushing
is time itself. That marketing is working because people are lining up to the
information booths as if a new iPhone is on sale, all to talk to the Death-Cast
customer service reps.
