I spotted a news article today saying that Britain's oldest man, Reg Dean, has died at the age of 110.

At a party for his 109th birthday he attributed his longevity to 'being lazy'.

Yesterday I spotted a news article where a woman aged 105 had just died - she and her 108 year old sister were in the Guinness Book of Records for being the siblings with the highest combined age.

The 105 year old had attributed her longevity to 'hard work'.

huh

Maybe I should have put this in the 'what confuses you' thread!

Stewart Copeland's Dark Passage (written for the soundtrack to first Spyro The Dragon video game) is such an awesome song. Excellent guitar, excellent keyboards and backing organ, excellent drums/percussion, and excellent heavy bass that holds it all together. Sounds a bit like a Uriah Heep song. Utter genius. cool



The one problem? It's only available in mono! rolleyes It would probably sound even better in stereo. sad

Did you know that the current oldest person in the world, Jiroemon Kimura from Japan, is also now the oldest man in history? He's also the last surviving man from the 19th century. And if he reaches age 116, he'll be the first man to have ever done so, as the second and third oldest men ever both died at age 115.

Actually, I did! It's a bit unusual for the oldest living person to be male as in general women tend to live longer than men.

My interest stems from the fact I'm a trustee of my company's pension scheme (longevity and life expectancy trends being of considerable importance when funding pension schemes). I also once did a presentation to a local group on life expectancy (or as our pension scheme actuary refers to it, 'Die Another Day').

Out of the 100 oldest ever people (whose ages have been verified, anyway), 7 of them have been men.

A certain well-known on-line encyclopaedia used to list some cases in the top 100 which may originally have been accepted but subsequently some doubt was thrown on the validity of their claims. From memory there was one Japanese man who had claimed to be 119 or 120 (they've since removed these 'doubtful claims' from the list), but it was subsequently thought that he might 'only' have been 105 when he died. He had an older brother who died whilst very young, and the family had given him the same name as his deceased sibling, hence the confusion over exact birth dates.

I find it all quite interesting...some cases of extreme old age are actually offspring 'impersonating' a deceased parent in order to keep claiming pension or other benefits.

Apparently in Poland during the second world war, there was apparently a sudden jump in the average age of the population, as men claimed to be older than they were in order to avoid being called up to serve in the war on the grounds of age.

How come I can remember all this odd stuff and yet still come out of the supermarket without the main item I went in forhuh huh
