dittybopper: and at that age, their expected number of lives left is about 20
lewismarktwo: Nah, it's cause old people make tarded babies.
Quantum Apostrophe: quickdraw: think women over 50 aren't having sex?One hopes. Sex is for the young.Old people having sex is like watching an old toothless cat trying to hunt.
RobSeace: dittybopper: and at that age, their expected number of lives left is about 20What, did they gather 20 1-UP mushrooms, or something??
THX 1138: "THE menopause"?
ModernLuddite: So bears don't deserve medical care? Ass.
doglover: phalamir: (car deaths, heart failure, and cancers kinda cancel out dysentery, cholera, and cave bear)Honestly, between cancer and a cave bear, I know which one I'd choose and an oncologist would be useless.
abhorrent1: You know, women. You want to be treated equally? How about you start by taking some farking responsibility and quit blaming men for all your woes. That would be a good start. Then we can talk about all the perks you get just for having tits.
gaspode: male sperm is not a limited commodity.
Shadowknight: quickdraw: soooo nothing to do with life expectancy and the ability to raise your child then? Or perhaps that the extreme physical demands that pregnancy, birth and nursing put on the mother? Or that having a whole generation of women who are no longer procreating available to assist in the care of the young?None of that?And seriously - does the researcher think women over 50 aren't having sex?Evolutionarily speaking, There wouldn't be much point to pro rating beyond that point anyway. Without modern medicine, protective devices, tools... just looking at us as biological machines, the animals we really are, our life expectancy wouldn't be much higher than that of menopause anyway. We'd be dead of animal attack, infection, starvation, or any number of reasons well before a lady's baby factory shuttered it's windows and locked it's doors
