Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Most amendments were passed by Congress and ratified in an acceptable period of time, sometimes within a year. The 27th amendment is a singularity for which no time limit had been contemplated at the time nor after. The Equal Rights Amendment of 1972 instead had a shelf life attached. It symbolically achieved ratification by 3/4 of the States recently.
