I've been meaning for a while to make an app called "I'm Wasting My Life".
You tell it your date of birth, and every now and then it buzzes to tell you something incredible that someone else achieved at your exact age.
I'll probably never get round to it, but here is my list so far of achievements, with a column showing when I reached that same exact age.
The list is much too male and British - please let me know people I've missed.
Here are some statistics on the achievements I'm including so far.
Most people achieve things between 20 and 50. I'm struggling to find anything in the 60s, and can't find a single achievement over the age of 80. If you're over 80 please do something massive to provide one.
Way too many men. Sorry.
It's way too Anglo-American. Sorry again.
Quite pleased with the variety here. I'd like more sport, but it's hard to find sporting achievements that are interesting to the whole world for all time, rather than just followers of that sport at the time.
