Digital sum of the last m digits of x^n < digital sum of x (for x < 10^m):
For n even, this is always 10^m-1, but for odd n there are some irregularities:
n=3, m=1: {8}
n=3, m=2: {87}
n=3, m=3: {887}
n=3, m=4: {8887}
n=3, m=5: {99868}
n=3, m=6: {978887}
n=3, m=7: {7978887}
n=5, m=1: {1...9}
n=5, m=2: {81, 87}
n=5, m=3: {887, 994}
n=5, m=4: {9983, 9994}
n=5, m=5: {98994, 99594}
n=5, m=6: {989594}
n=5, m=7: {9899982}
n=7, m=1: {8}
n=7, m=2: {78, 97}
n=7, m=3: {978}
n=7, m=4: {9978}
n=7, m=5: {69978}
n=7, m=6: {869978}
n=7, m=7: {9799978}

I wonder if anyone has thought of this before:
With this formula, you get the time on your "life-clock":
2*(sqrt{age}+1) in hours
For example, if you're 36 then you're at 2 P.M. in the day of your life.

A similar formula projecting a lifespan into one year will return August, 1st for this age:
sqrt{age}+1 in months, starting at Jan. 1st or, more precisely, (sqrt{age}+1)/12*365.2(42)5 in days, depending on whether you want to take an average Julian or Gregorian year into account. Note that you have to count 6 hours, or 5 h 49 m 12 s respectively, of Feb. 29th, if you want to be that precise.

Not many people have lived to be 121, some people have lived longer.

Actually and officially, only one woman has surpassed this age yet.
But I pictured the end of the range at the beginning of a life, i.e. at the age of 144.

2*(sqrt{144}+1) = 26 ??

Oh, I see -- you're starting at 2 AM

2*(sqrt{0}+1) = 2

Actually, people are 0 years old (but almost always measured in days/weeks/months so as to have a >0 measure ) before they're 1 year old.
So it starts at 0 (12 midnight) o'clock
2*(sqrt{0}+0) = 0
And so someone living to 144 would live from midnight to 2 am the next day. (similarly, a 121 year old would be midnight to midnight)

If 121 years is midnight --> midnight, then it would have to be 2*(sqrt{age}/11*12)?

It's a symbolic measure, and it just fits better with the "+1" term in it.
It's rather useless from a completely mathematical point of view.

And yes, if you're 144 that would be 2 A.M. again.
If I would go further, I'd say every soul reincarnates after 144 years, and so noone can surpass this age. Hey, how 'bout a "square root of age plus one" cult?

Maybe it starts at -9 months?


2*(sqrt{-9/12}+1) = 2 + sqrt{3}i
