    They die off because only the sperm that makes it to the egg can live.

    about 24 hours in the abdomen of a woman. however, most of them are flushed out before that. actually, the more interesting question is, why can't two or more sperm cells enter the egg cell? the answer is: upon entering the egg, the spermium triggers the release of calcium, cancelling the possibility for any other sperm cell to enter after the first one does.

    it's not like in the anime movies you watch in elementary schools ;-) not only one spermium makes it all the way to the egg :)

    The other sperms die and let the sperm that has fertilised to develop into the zygote.
