Looking for interesting ways of teaching date and time functions, along with formatting numbers, I decided to occupy myself in a more useful manner.
I’ve always wondered how I could possibly read the nearly 10,000 books currently sitting in my ebook collection. Today we were talking about how many days, hours and minutes we’ve been on this earth, when it occurred to me that I should calculate (according to Australian averages) how many days I have left to enjoy.
Some head-scratching, research, and much trivial chatter amongst our group ensued, followed by this hastily-created spreadsheet.
So, as it turns out, I have more than enough time to read my entire collection, with time to spare to earn income or whatever else I decide should be a priority.
