My Ds were asking me today, in light of the resignation of a Supreme Court Justice..what was the average lifespan of people back during the time the consitution was written.
One D's class was discussing the idea ot term limits, life time appointments, and the benefits and problems with both. But no one really knew what the average lifespan was back then. it was a questions some of the kids asked. Now it is about 70. I know there will of course be people who live a lot longer, who will die in child birth or war, and that affects the average, we just want some basic information for debate
No need to turn this into a debate on issue, knowing this forum, it could go back and forth forever.
