Sogen Kato, a Buddhist man whose family claimed was on a self-imposed isolation since the 1980's and thought to have been the oldest person in Tokyo at age 111, has apparently been dead for 30 years.

His family is now under investigation for fraud.

It may well be the case that several people on the deathlist have been dead for years and just never been reported.It would explain a lot!

The death of Cora Hansen lowers the total of verified living people born in the 19th century to 26, I think.

That's quite a coincidence, Three men lived to 115 and all with the same birthday!

I have CDO. It's like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.

From that website I glean that 45 people born in the 19th century are still with us. After all, those born in 1900 were also born in the 19th century, for the same reason that the 21st century began on 1 January 2001: there was no year 0.

We may as well name & shame them, for all the fruit pickers out there. In a jingoistic spirit, I'll have my fiver on Grace Jones to beat the Japs and the Yanks and take a surprise gold in 2017. All that nightclubbing will keep her fit and healthy.
