How old is the oldest living person?




This subject was covered on the Guardian recently when the world’s oldest man died aged 111.

There was a commentator on there insisting that he’d had several family members live past 120, not that he cared to have it verified.


why not just cut her in half and count the rings? (joke, take it easy folks…)


I’ve become disillusioned with supercentenarians recently. Lying about their age, not turning up when they’re drafted, claiming pensions after they’re dead… I guess I’m just having to reevaluate the trust I’ve placed in our extreme elders over the years.
