Convert human years to animal years

People will say such things as "my dog is 14 but thats 98 in human years". This is a bit stupid but I see where they are coming from. Yesterday me and Jim did some web research and found the conversion for several animals.

1 dog year = 7 human years
1 horse year=2.2 human years
1 mouse year=34 human years

for cats its much more interesting as its non linear:

How and why these people worked this out is beyond me.

armed with this information we can now quote dog years in horse years eg
"my dog is 14 but thats 31 in horse years"

According to font of all knowledge, Stephen Fry on QI, dog years are fairly non-linear, with a 1 year old dog being more mature than a 7 year old human, but a 3 year old canine is comparable to 21. A dog's old age is supposedly more rapid than 7x a human's as well.

I'd like somebody to figure out the conversion between 'man years' and 'woman years'. It seems obvious that women mature faster than men and also live a bit longer so the relationship is definitely not linear

Apparently all (healthy) mammals have about 2 billion heart beats in them before they snuff it. Thus, mice, whose heart goes at >200 bpm, live a lot short lives.

(I sometimes wonder about this when I'm exercising and thus "wasting" heart beats, or when I'm slobbing in front of the tv "saving" heart beats...)

Anyway, as per, it's not the amount that counts - it's what you do with them...

Another one close to my heart is the conversion rate between real years and "PhD writing-up" years....

i don't buy the "1 year = 7 years" theory. My dog is 17! That makes him 112 in human years? Not if you ask him!!!
