So what? She was 114 (a few days away from 115 as a matter of fact), why should anyone care? Well, it’s not so much the person themselves I care about (except from Walter Breuning), it’s the fact that we’re losing years of the nineteenth century faster than we’re gaining years of this crappy century. I don’t know about you, but I like to live in a world where I can still say “there’s someone alive that was born in 18XX”.
Anyway, 1895 is gone and we’re on 1896 now, and I will be pissed when this one goes too. I’m talking in terms of the verified though as there are a few disputed claims, but whatever.
That’s that, but did you know that the world’s longest recorded lived organism was 250 million years old?
