28,687 days

28,687 days. That’s how long the average US citizen will live, around 78.5 years. Given the chaos of our world today, that number can be quite important. There’s a lot of inspirational things you can do with that, but we’ll be more practical today.

Given an even distribution, that means that 1 out of every 28,687 people will die today, or roughly 11,000, from various causes.
