Sir Creep

Posted 31 July 2015 - 12:19 PM

Came across this article just now.  At 110 Agnes Fenton gotta be in the top 100.  Anyway she looks like she'll be kicking for a couple years yet.
SC
Edit: Good quote from article: "That means roughly 1 in every 10 million people in the world is a supercentenarian."  Now we have a statistic.

Wikipedia currently has 47 verified people aged 111 or more:
https://en.wikipedia...t_living_people
 
For some reason, they do not have the 110 year-old people in the official list (too many or none at all?), but they have 7 cases in the "pending" list. Well, I guess, since the 110-year old people have just recently become supercentenarians, the verification process needs some time to confirm them.
 
Anyway, I had checked that list because there apparently was a 114-year old woman in India that just died, but she didn't appear on any list either:

Her age of 114 would have put her in the top 10.
Actually the article I posted gives conflicting numbers of about 600 and about 360 for the total super centenarians, which would put my gal at #361 lol.
"Of the 7 billion people on the planet, a microscopic number are 110 or older. Robert Young, director of the Gerontology Research Group, which keeps track of supercentenarians, estimates 600. Dr. Thomas Perls, founding director of the New England Centenarian Study at Boston University School of Medicine, of which Fenton is a participant, puts the number at 360."

Wrinkly old senile stranger is apparently 115 but nobody knows who they are?

What a stupid comment. If a person doesn't want her name revealed to the rest of the world, she automatically stops being a living person? :banghead:

Good to hear Ruth Newman has had her longevity verified while alive. She survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and is still breathing.

Two new 110+ women have just been recently verified.

 

Anonymous (15 March 1900) - Japan

Ruth Newman (23 September 1901) - USA

 

Both find their spot in the Top 10.

hang on, surely she is not the only Australian over 100?  is that even what you meant?

 

 

or super centenarian

 meant supercentenarian, dammit.  :P

 

Yes, we haven't all drunk ousrselves into the grave by 99.

 

 

 

just the majority of you!! :champagne:

 

 

 

So Rolf Harris' enforced alcohol free holiday at HM pleasure, may give him longevity and national celebrity in another direction, then.
