Hawick_1987

Besse Cooper

She is the oldest person alive today, born in 1896. She was alive BEFORE the Subway opened and just after the first modern Olympiad. What she has witnessed in 116 years is beyond comprehension

Pailing in comparison of course to Jeanne Louise Calment who lived to be 122 years old...

Hawick_1987

Perusing Wikipedia at 5 a.m. and I can just imagine the banter:


Wiki contributor Bob: Any joy on finding a Scottish male supercentenarian then mate?

Gerontologist Mike: Eh....naw....I knew a guy that collected his pension once...




On an unrelated note, I just caught a bit of Charlie Endell esquire on TV-Ark and now I can die a happy man!
