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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

remaining WW1 vets and also the titanic survivors.
It's not celebritys type fame. It's just not deathlist material.

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.

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.
