Fanny Godin the oldest woman in Belgium (112) has died.

We have a thread about running out of Dicks elsewhere. Does anyone know if Fannys are in short supply yet?

It is worse than that they are being wantonly destroyed. I recently saw a reprint of Enid Blyton'...

Birthday gal lost her proof 40 years ago..

But by fuck, she looks 127.

Some utter fucktard isn't doing their sums right.

She was 27 when World War One erupted, 75 when John F. Kennedy was shot and nearly 100 when the Berlin Wall came down.

Emmanuel Kriaras, possibly the world's oldest Greek lexicographer and philologist, has died at the age of 107, leaving behind the twenty three volume Dictionary of Medieval Demotic Greek, 1100 - 1669 as his legacy. When asked recently what should be done regarding the current economic struggles facing his country, he replied thus:

Quote

"First, the young should not leave to go abroad. They should learn to bear and persist. We are being drained of our blood as a nation by this youth flight. Second, they should stay here, work and love their work, they should not strike, especially teachers and doctors. Third, I should be going...I am tired. I don't want to live anymore and watch this situation."
