He musta been something before fire.

We do simple testing, find out he's full of crap, end of story.

Good thing he wasn't serving life in prison.

What kind of "simple testing" are you thinking of?

This just in, people will lie for attention.

Methuselah lived 900 years.
Methuselah lived 900 years
Who calls that livin'
When no gal will give in
To a man what's even 160 years old

Cut him in half and count the rings. Duh.

the Ring has brought him unnaturally long life

He's one of those rich Ethiopians.

You can tell by the Rolex around his waist.

A few weeks back they opened an Ethiopean restaurant in town. It was either that or an abandoned lot, I couldn't be sure.

In all seriousness, would life even be fun over a certain age. All of your peers are gone, so no one to reminisce with. I imagine your health wouldn't be all that great. So you ache everyday, no one your equal in so much as age goes, no one from the opposite sex probably would want to be with you. Doesn't sound like a life worth living any more.
 
2013-09-10 09:13:57 PM
Italy also invaded Ethiopia in the 1930s.  Perhaps that's the one he remembers?
 
2013-09-10 09:16:28 PM
I call bullshiat, because Ethipoia only found about food a couple of decades ago.

The Kurgan seemed to enjoy himself.  Not every immortal is an emo.

Nice thread diversion. I lived in Seattle by Swedish Hospital some years back. There are some incredibly good Ethiopian restaurants in that neighborhood. Ever since, when in a new town, I go out of my way to find them, no they are not abandoned lots. Yummy dishes served on a plate of bread.

Cut him in half, count the rings.  Somebody might have mentioned it.  Maybe it wouldn't work, but it's not like anything of value would be lost.

That was the second time. The first time was in the 1890's.

We discovered this new Ethiopian restaurant.

They finally got their own cuisine. Progress.

He's finally old enough to rent ultraporn.

Oh come on. We all believed it until you had the gall to speak up. Killjoy.

Aren't Ethiopean restaurants just UNICEF distribution centers?
 
2013-09-10 09:31:56 PM
Hey may be 160, but at least he's not 160.
 
2013-09-10 09:32:08 PM
He's also the current record-holder for The Game.

Cut him down and count the rings.

Yea that's why he said "also". The 1890s was the first one, as referenced in the article. Try to keep up.
 
2013-09-10 09:34:18 PM
Of course, he's counting in lemur years.
 
2013-09-10 09:34:55 PM
Has anyone mentioned cutting him in half and counting the rings?

Ha! That will teach me to hit reply before finishing the thread. But as a 148-year-old* whippersnapper, who has time for that?

*Plus or minus a century.

In other news, Emma Watson and Michelle Trachtenberg both declared their undying love for me and are both moving in tonight.

Bullshiat, Genesis 6:3 strictly forbids this.
 
2013-09-10 09:45:37 PM
Photo in article...

Dude is no more than 50s or 60s, at the very oldest. I wouldn't be surprised if he's just a trainwrecked 40.
 
2013-09-10 09:47:10 PM
I don't understand the absolute certainty of the bullshiat call. I'd love to see some credible citations that state that it is biologically impossible.

kthxbye

"The reporter was so impressed by his knowledge about local history, that he was convinced that the retired farmer must be 16 decades old."
Riiiiiight... because it is impossible to have knowledge of events from before one is born.

I know thats a joke, but counting rings only works on species that grow till they die, species that stop growing at a certain age like humans dont work.

Ethiopian food is really pretty good. The grey bath towel-sized sour crepe called 'injera' that is both starch and utensil takes a bit of getting used to, but the curries and vegetable dishes are nice.
