Nelly de Vries-Lammerts, oldest woman in the Netherlands, 110. (Dutch link) http://www.ad.nl/ad/...overleden.dhtml

 

Has anyone asked people when they turn 110 if it feels super to be a super-centenarian?

 

Not many of them escape that decade alive once they've entered it.

There's a new officially oldest man to add to your lists, Yasutaro Koide, 112 years old:

Good to hear Ruth Newman has had her longevity verified while alive. She survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and is still breathing.
 
 
*insert random plug for 2016 Deathrace here*

 
Ruth Newman is reportedly dead on August 1st.
 
This leaves the 1906 San Francisco earthquake survivor count to William de Monte being the last known survivor.

Who the fuck keeps track of that; how did you find it; what the fuck is going on on this big blue marble whilst it spins?,!

It's called "research"

 

Not answering my question.  I don't believe for one second (and it's moot now) that one could enter 'living survivors of the San Francisco earthquake 1906' and that anyone anywhere on the Web had that list.  As a goddamn LIBRARIAN and former CORPORATE SPY (er... collector of actionable business intelligence) I think I know a wee bit about 'research'.  I also think I know what is simply too obtuse to obtain, like 'living survivors of the San Francisco earthquake 1906'.  So again I ask, who the fuck keeps track of that? I doubt the San Francisco  Chronicle had a story posted years back listing the few survivors still breathing, but impress me with a link.

People with an interest in history like to keep track of these sort of things. While others may think it strange, for others it becomes a hobby. Just go along to any local museum of any small town, and you'll be surprised at what may be trivial to your average person, another will have painstakingly documented. Most places have that person which often the local press will cite as their "local historian"

LOL, well he called it research, I call it Wikipedia.

https://en.wikipedia..._commemorations

There was a centennial commemoration, where eleven survivors participated, were interviewed and birth data written down somewhere. Naturally, all older than 100. Then we know all of them died and a new guy who was only a few months old at the time is presumed to be the last survivor. Then again we don't know if there was a survivor who didn't wanna come out and might still be alive, but it's unlikely.
