I've no idea the 118-118 jokes you refer to Dr Z
SirC

 
I would like to take the time to explain this to you but I fear it would not reflect well on the entire British people if I did.

Haha I can accept that.

Taken from us too soon...

 

The only 118-118 thing I could come up with was something to do with it being the number for the UK's most expensive directory enquiries provider, but I fail to see the funny side.  :scratchhead:

This year for the first time I didn't pick the world's oldest for my DDP team. All her predecessors performed as expected, but mrs Okawa's failure to die last year prompted me to let her go, there were more valuable possibilities. I don't think she'll do a Jeanne Calment (who held the title for 9 years and 205 days), but she may well be around a few more years.


I was wrong. Oh well.

Aww, I was hoping she'd live to be 118 at least.

Anyways, I also expected to be the first to post the enws, so here is a link anyway: http://www.nbcnews.c...ies-117-n333706

It's a US link, but I couldn't find any UK.

PS that reduces the number of people born in the 1800s to 4 and living Victorians to 9. Gertrude Weaver of the USA is now the worlds oldest person , just 4 months younger than Misao Okawa !
