That's not how it works in Al-Qaeda.

Although she never drank alcohol or tried tobacco and led an active life,...

The first two are not compatible with the last. Perhaps "led a dull life" would be more appropriate.

Rest in Peace, dear old lady. My granny passed at 103, and it's neat when they have most of their minds at that age. But I find it strange that someone can live for 100 plus years in basically the same county. Hence my "dull life" comment.

Parker's great-nephew notified him that Parker died Wednesday at a nursing home in Shelbyville.

"Damn Shelbyville!"

Parker had been a widow since her husband, Earl Parker, died in 1939 of a heart attack.


She really believed in an extended grieving process.

Some woman told me the other day that she'd lived in this same town her entire life, had barely ever left. Well, she wasn't 100, but she was about 40. I couldn't comprehend it.

Don't bump 'em too hard...
 
2008-11-27 08:29:58 PM  
Great. Until recently Shelbyville was known for having the world's oldest person AND the world's tallest. Now they're both gone and we'll have to go back to being known for...ummm...

/I'll have to get back with you on this one

Is this really what the boobies look like when no TFers respond first?

c'mon liters, we can do better than this.
 
2008-11-27 08:40:25 PM  
Hey, we all move up in line on this one.
 
2008-11-27 08:41:13 PM  
She had really pretty hair. I hope she had a happy life.
 
2008-11-27 08:43:09 PM  
An article that mentions April 20th on www.chron.com
Internet, you could have done better with that

She was so old, she was conceived in the back seat of a chariot.
 
2008-11-27 08:50:14 PM  
Perhaps after living that long of a life, after the election she figured she'd seen it all.

I think this was captured best in a bit from Locomotivespotting, turn-of-the-century:
Right. So we all get old, our husbands die of heart attacks in 1939, and then we can hack it a bit more, and we live on for another 70 years. Is that it? That's your theory?

/Yeah. Beautifully farking illustrated.

Wow, it's like the title "World's oldest person" is cursed or something. This happens all the time.

Wow. There are still people alive today who were born in the nineteenth century. Nice work, you old bastards.

Brad_Will: Wow. There are still people alive today who were born in the nine


Isn't that at least kind of cool? I'd love to see the 22nd century.

YES! Front row!

I wouldn't, think about it, at 100+ you've outlived your spouse, all your friends, possibly your kids (who'd be pushing 70-80 themselves if they were alive) and maybe even a grand kid or two. Thanks but no thanks.

Wouldn't the idea be to keep making new friends as you go. To replace the old ones?

Or does there come a point where you're just too old to hang out with 80-year-olds anymore?

It's like the title "World's Oldest Person" is cursed or something.

Still, I'm crossing my fingers for some kind of post-human digital immortality. I don't mind living in a simulation.

My grandmother is 105 and 9 months.

Unfortunately she has started not feeling well, and we don't think she will make 106 in February.

Also unfortunate is that she is 10,000kms away and I can't/won't get a chance to see her one last time.

/sad
