Not famous for anything besides being 115, if there's a better place to post this you'll need to direct me [I did my due diligence and searched her name zero hits returned].That aside, Emma Moreno is now famous for giving interviews posted in the NYTimes.SChttp://mobile.nytime...ung-at-115.html

Misao Okawa is officially the 5th oldest person in history!

I have a feeling that Misao Okawa will be keeping her title of "Oldest Living Person" for a while, she's had it since 2013! That's the longest since Maria Capovilla, in 2004-2006.

BTW, Misao's 117th birthday is on March 5th and on February 15th she is going to beat Maria Capovilla as the 5th oldest person ever.

do you think we could have another Jeanne Calment on our hands ? :shock2:

 

Well here's a pic of Calment at 117. Make your own judgment.

I'd say no, Calment looked a lot better at this stage. She might just make it to 120 though.

 

IMO "The French bint" will never be beaten during this post-WWII pre-WWIII epoch. For one thing there isn't enough time left.
