You're not a hundred and ninety-seven years old!!!!! :XD: That's too old for you!
I love how you did this though. Up close it spells nothing, but in the thumbnail, or the distance, or if you look at it another way, it spells everything!

Nice idea but your number is wrong.
Seventy two thousand and sixty days is 72,060 days = 197 years.
I think you meant Seven thousand, two hundred and sixty - 7,260.
You aint that old bud.

Did you, by any chance, mean to write out 7,260 days? Because that would be "seventy-two hundred and sixty" (or "seven thousand two hundred and sixty"). "Seventy-two thousand and sixty" is 72,060, which comes out to a little more than 197 years.

LOL I caught that too. Wouldn't it suck to do the work and realise AFTER that you've done the math wrong? Maybe it's meant to be a statement.

I realize that. I'm saying, 72,060 days is beyond the lifespan of a person. I figured I'd ask because 7,260 days is about 19 years, which seems more reasonable to me than assuming this artist is intentionally claiming to be 197 years old.
