Every time someone is proclaimed the oldest person alive, they always die soon afterward.

I think there's a serial killer on the loose.

Goodnight, funny lady.

Wow, 113... so during the Roaring 20's, she was in her roaring 20's.  Two world wars, the rise of the automobile, the computer revolution.  Damn, so much change, I can't imagine what the must have been like.  I mean, this woman was "old" when Leave It to Beaver first went on the air.  She was at the average age of death for a women in America when disco was the king of the airwaves.

Don't you feel time gaining on you? It's like a predator; it's stalking you. Oh,you can try and outrun it with doctors, medicines, new technologies but in the end, time is going to hunt you down... and make the kill.

No, but I do find 10 years has got behind me. No one told me when to run... I missed the starting gun.

Hang on to your hopes, my friend. That's an easy thing to say, but if your hope should pass away, simply pretend That you can build them again!

I have my books and my poetry to protect me. I am shielded in my armor. Hiding in my room, safe within my womb, I touch no one and no one touches me.

She was already in her 20's when he was born.  It just blows my mind being around that long.  I mean, I'm looking at maybe another 35-40 years... she made it 40 past that.

Nice.

Waiting patiently for season 4, although the 3 finale wrapped things up nicely.

Kenny REALLY dying might have been a better send-off, though.

So how many people born in the 19th century are still around?

Hmmm, was she on the season finale of The Walking Dead?
 
2013-04-02 07:22:06 AM
I know this lady is before the generation that fought in WW2 but I do find it kind of sad that we are losing that generation. The elderly people now were the 60s hippie people. We're almost totally disconnected from anything related to the early 20th century at this point, a true changing of the guard.

Because it changes about 2000 times in the span of time it'll take you to figure out who you're getting a gift for.

My goal is to make it longer than all four of my sisters, so I can hoist a quality beer like Milwaukee's Best Ice in their memory, and then piss it out on their graves.

What I find depressing is that I could live that long. Do you have any idea how much money you have to have saved before retirement to support yourself for that long?!? Christ, if she "retired" at age 65, she's been living on savings and social security for more than 40 years.
I'm 40, and according to my calculations, at this point if I retire at 65, I'll run out of money....lets see here, carry the one...divide by twelve...before I turn 66. Well fark. So I guess my choices are to eat horrible the next twenty years, and die at 60. Or work till I drop sometime in my 70's.

/have you heard about Boston Market's new ribs?
//I think I'll try them...three times this week.

So how many years did she live without sex? Why live being sickly and basicaly mindless?

Just once, I want to hear someone's "secret to longevity" be something along the lines of "...frequent coed orgies and copious amounts of legal and illegal drugs, washed down with tequila, driving fast, deep-fried bacon and a cup of Earl Grey tea with lemon every morning."

I've got 65 years or so until they ask me.   I'll have something pretty depraved thought up by then, but I'll probably forget it.

First person to live to 200 has already been born.
 
2013-04-02 08:38:24 AM
She said that the secret to her longevity was the fact that she loved people and greeted each new day with a smile.

Hmmm, I'm going out on a limb & say she never hung out in the Fark Politics Tab.
 
2013-04-02 08:39:55 AM
I've only lived 40 years, but they sure *feel* like 113. The secret to feeling 113 is to spend a lot of time in meetings.

She was probably one of the last people remaining from the nineteenth century. I remember growing up in the sixties and seventies when "old" meant "born in the 1880's or 1890's".

If the only definite in life is death - forget taxes, certain wealthy individuals have learned how to do away with paying taxes - then  surely life is just a race towards death, or depending on your pessimism/optimism quota, a slow amble towards death. Either way, the goal is to die.
So, why are we all waiting in line, docile and suffering while we wait our turn?
Maybe if we all just gave up and stepped off a bridge we'd all be happier. I think I would.

The 19th century is a lie. Show me one person that remembers Lincoln, The Civil War, Garfield's assassination, the so called War of 1912, or Great Chicago Fire, and I'll buy you a steak dinner. It's all made up.

True story...

My brother's grandmother-inlaw just recently passed away.  She was 107!!  Clearly the oldest person I've ever known.
She lived in an apartment in my borther's house with her daughter.  She somewhere in her 80s.
