    Repeat Post: 1,000,000 Men:

    Someone asked a question recently on this
    board:

    "Out of a million men, how many die every
    day?"

    Now, just for the sake of discussion, let's
    assume
    a life expectency of 82 years, and that, upon
    reaching
    their 82nd birthday, everyone dies. This means
    that
    every man lives roughly 30,000 days.

    Now,
    let's take a 1,000,000 man sample and assume we've

    got an equal representaion of men of all ages. Some
    are
    1 day old, some are 10,000 days old, and yes,
    some have
    just reached their 82nd birthday. In
    fact, about
    33 (1,000,000/30,000) men have just
    reached their
    82nd birthday and will die!


    Now, let's instead let our 1,000,000 man
    population
    include only the upper half of the age
    distribution,
    that is men between the ages of 41 and 82.
    That
    doubles the number of men reaching their 82nd
    birthday.

    OUT OF A MILLION MEN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 41 AND
    82,
    67 WILL DIE EVERY DAY DUE TO OLD AGE
    ALONE.

    Does anyone else find this interesting? Does this
    make
    sense?
