    Hmm...have you noticed that all these people who eventually get the "World's oldest person" Title, are dead within one-two years of getting it.

    Here is a list of the record holders and when they recieved the title: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldest_people
    What is popular isn't always right; What is Right isn't always popular.

      There could be other older people that they missed because they only have a couple countries listed. Maybe because other countries did not want to volunteer.

        The coolest thing about being that old, is you could say, "Forty years ago, when I was eighty..."

          My friend wants to live to be 120 so then he can span 3 centuries, 2 millenniums, and 12 decades.

          Millenniums doesn't sound right. I feel like it should be millennia.

            I have great grandaunt (great grandpa's sister) who's now 101. She plans to live until 120, which should be 2026.

              Millenia IS the plural spelling of millenium.
