If you are 57 or older, you have been around for 25% of the entire history of the US since the constitution was adopted.

If you want to start from the Declaration of Independence, then you have to be over 60 to have been here for a full 1/4 of our nation's life.

Current centenarians have been here for over 40% of US history.

Thanks for making me feel really old Henry! Of course the key phrase here is "being around".......and I'm grateful that I still am!

I am 75 and still like the "Old days" when I grew up. I could carry a hand gun, rifle or shotgun right to the hardware store and never raise an eyebrow.

...or carry my shot gun on the bus to school so I could hunt walking home.

when I was a kid you could bring your .30-06 to school for show and tell in the 5th grade.
