World's oldest person dies at 116

Elizabeth "Lizzy" Bolden died at a nursing home in Memphis, Tennessee. BBC News 12/12/06 "Mrs Bolden had 40 grandchildren, 75 great-grandchildren, 150 great-great-grandchildren, 220 great-great-great grandchildren and 75 great-great-great-great grandchildren. She assumed the title of world's oldest person following the death of Esther de Capovilla of Ecuador in August - also at the age of 116. Her successor looks set to be Emiliano Mercado del Toro of Puerto Rico, who is 115, according to Robert Young, adviser to Guinness World Records. "

There's no first person advice on how to live to a "ripe old age" that you usually find in such articles. It's usually amusing to get health bromides as hard work, spirituality and a good attitude. And hey they might help... a bit. More likely it was great genes and lots of luck.

I included the above quote because holy moses... if you live enough and breed a bit you get a small country's worth of descendants.
