They're all bloody Yanks, apart from our Gladys Hawley and Mary Ellen Swan. Go girls! Imagine that, living since 1891 - that really is quite mad.

I note that Ramona Trinidad Iglesias Jordan died, aged 114, in Puerto Rico on Saturday.

According to the Independent today: "Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper, born on 29 June 1890 in Hoogeveen, enjoys the traditional Dutch specialty [sic] of pickled herring every day and the occasional alcoholic drink." This makes her, according to the indie, the world's oldest person at 113.

Note to self: eat more herring.

The Guardian yesterday had her as the worlds oldest person at 114. Always first with the news The Guardian :unsure:

Frankly, unless im imagining things, the worlds oldest person has died about 6 times already this year - the case for not allowing these people is strengthened.

However next year's entry for Derby Dead Pool should clearly include the 20 oldest people in the world - we'd be unbeatable.

And there goes another one....

World's Oldest Man Dies

Grim Reapers suggestion seems more and more appropriate.

Oh, and Frenzy - your pick of James Rockefeller was certainly prescient - he died August!

Have any of you noticed that there are very few people over 100 dying? :)

But you did not need to create 2 identical threads in the deathlist.net forum to find out this information. You could have just as quickly done a search on google.

In regard to your question, I hope that this helps.

Deathlist Boy i try to figure out why you post multiple threads on
the same subject. I think maybe your a young child who has a computer and you discovered a websight in which you don't have any buesness posting on at all.
I think u have been asked quite a few number of times to post only once on
a topic or post in the proper thread that is set up for a certin subject
"Exsample" If you have an idea for 2006 you would post in the
ideas and possibilitys thread. I understand u may not know because
you appear to be young. Then theres always the possibility that
someone is frauding to act young like they have no idea how to post.
I guess they would think that it is simmaler to being there deathlist chararter
an annoying useless fruity child that makes posts that quite frankly
no one could give a Fu*k about. I don't really know how to disclose this issue with the deathlist boy. I wonder if theres anyway to block a member from posting?
If theres anyway that some of the administrators like the Reaper or Stayin Alive or even the Death Watch Beatle could block the deathlistboy from any further posts that would be a big help the to deathlist commite.

The oldest man in Britain was 109 the other day.

I think the oldest woman in the world is about 120 & lives in Japan.
There were three of us in the morgue so it was rather crowded

Not sure that DLB has the concentration necessary to read and understand such a long post though, even though you obviously went to some trouble to formulate it in ways which should be familiar to him.

Let's hope he gets the message. That smiley is starting to get a bit annoying, when it appears on a new thread.

Maria Strelnikova was born March 15, 1890, making her 125 years old. ;)

Your math is a bit off..That would only make her 115..

The world record book is also off a bit. The oldest women
was 128. Her lifespan was 1875 - 2003.

I think the oldest living women was born circa 1880.

To my knowledge, no man or woman has been categorically proved to have lived to the age of 128. The most widely accepted record holder is Jeanne Calment who died a few years ago aged 122. Before her there was a Japanese man who lived to 120. So it's possible that a 115 year old is the world's oldest living person.

Sill not really famous though.

Agreed. It's just discussion with the worlds oldest and the
remaining WW1 vets and also the titanic survivors.

It's not celebritys type fame. It's just not deathlist material.

that man had better get some water, I believe his trousers are aflame. And his nose, it's the length of a telegraph cable. Convenient the way the world's oldest claimants are always from countries which are too ass-backward to have any hope of official records to verify their true age.

I'd almost vote to put this guy on the list for '06 just for the sheer satisfaction I for one would dervive upon reading of his demise. But he's not famous enough, and being a blatant liar doesn't help his cause either.

Ronnie my man, I take your point but 'Ass backward' countries to the generation currently making up the worlds oldest living people also includes parts of the USA and Europe.

Sonny Liston - an American probably born in the 1920s - has no birth certificate. He - apparantly - never knew his true age. His official ages listed as he registered as a boxer disagree with each other. Either way, were he still alive he'd be mid seventies at the oldest

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.
