300 years ago..would you be alive?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I was in the oldest pub in Glasgow the other day having some lunch, and me and my mate were nattering about how I wouldn't have been born in like, 1700s an stuff if my Mum was intending to have me.

Purely for the complication that I was laying in her tum all sideways rather than lengthways. They had to yank me out with pliers, tbh. :p Anyways, I wouldn't be alive since that technique wasn't about. And my Mum would have died too. Quite sad, actually. My Mum would be a wee..hrm..dunno..maybe a farmer woman. Like, a gruff farmer woman. She liked getting work done, really..

My Dad would have lived to be about 20, and then died from Chrons..he probably would have worked as a chimney sweep!

What about you lot?

Think you would have been born if you were due in the 1700s and stuff?

    i would.

    my dad would have been a farmer, and my mum would be the young girl he accidentally got pregnant.

    then they would have stolen some grain and run away to the next town where they would set up a grain shop.

    I wouldn't be here. My parents are from different classes, o they wouldn't have met. That, and my Dad's from Yourkshire, my Mum's from London. Basically, I would't be here now...

    Erm, nope. Similar complications.. I was born by cesarian (sp?) and then spent a few days in an incubator (again with the spelling). So even had my parents met, chances are neither me nor my mother would have survived.

    oh how re written history confuses people! usualy rewritten for religous and or political reasons. the egyptians, 5,000yrs ago were quite good at cesarian deliveries.
    if you take a walk around an old grave yard you will see ...despite the 'history' ...you have come to believe, that ...75 yrs old and even 80's and 90's were not uncommon ages to reach. there were periods now and again where ignorance and a tend to go backwards into darkness with knowledge and habits did bring life expectancy down to the 30's etc. but on the whole ...70/75 yrs old before they dig that hole for you has been a reasonable constant throughout mans time on the planet ...like i say ...there have been some dark and backward times inbetween.
    go and have a walk around a realy old cemetry ...you'll be surprised.
    one of the shortest life spans seems to be in the industrial revolution when we were forced off the land and into overcrowded slums of mass production.
