According to what I read in the on-line papers, the oldest person in the world just died. She was 116 and getting ready for her 117th birthday. The Guinness Book of Records has confirmed this with birth documents, etc. The next oldest is now the oldest at 116, just a few months short of the previous oldest person. The oldest person who ever lived, according the the Guinness Book of Records, reached 122 years; she was born in 1875 and she died in 1997.
Notice I keep saying she, not he. What about the old guys, like me? Well, they say there’s one old guy who is now 115. Not bad, eh?
