    A quick list of Indian centenarians, or possible centenarians. 1)Sudhakar Chaturvedi (1897 or 1901): Claims to be a disciple of Gandhi, a famous Vedic scholar and the oldest man ever. According to more sensible sources this man was born in the mid 20s, so should be around 95 now. He probably used someone's else identity. Currently not in the best health, his family declined to let him be interviewed or seen in April, so there is a good chance he's already dead. 2)Dharam Pal Singh (1897): Claims to be the World's oldest marathon runner ever. His claims have been exposed as hoaxes multiple times, and the man was actually born in 1938, he is just using the documents of an older deceased person. But it will be funny to see him living into his 140s 3)Fauja Singh (1911): I suspect he is a fraudster, probably 10/15 years younger. Still impressive. 4)Pappukutty Bhagavathar (1913): Malayalam singer and actor who has not made a public appearance in years. He is said to be in fair health, but 106 is 106. 5)G. Venkatasubbiah (1913): Kannada lexicographer. Still goes strong as he was seen voting at last polls in April/May. 6)Saalumarada Thimmaka (1910, 1913 or 1919): Tree planter who was in uber-dire health some years ago. God knows how, she recovered and is now fairly active. 7)Aiyappan Pillai (1914): Lawyer and current VP of ruling party BJP. Still going strong, but you can say this about all of them. 8)Lambert Mascharenhas (1914): Of Portuguese descent (Goa). Journalist and Padma Shri awardee, Catholic. 9)Man Kaur (1916): Old athlete.Or claimant to be and old athlete. 10)S. I. Padmavati (1917): Cardiologist. 11)Shyam Saran Negi (1917): Indian first voter. Ever. Looks miserable. 12)Sharadchandra Shankar Shrikhande (1917): An important mathematician. 13)H. S. Doreswamy (1918): Journalist and activist 14)Philipose Mar Chrysostom (1918): Metropolitan of the Syrian Church. 15)K. R. Gowri Amma (1919): Head of a small party in Kerala, former Minister. 16)Amala Shankar (1919): famous danseuse, widow of Uday Shankar. Groan..

    Two vultures board an airplane, each carrying two dead raccoons. The stewardess looks at them and says, "I'm sorry, gentlemen, only one carrion allowed per passenger."

    According to a comment from 2 years ago on this Facebook post, Freda is still living in Tang Hall in North Yorkshire. Suppose she’d only be 76 now and as they were a curiosity, it would be surprising if it wasn’t as least covered by the regional press.

    Would've been funny if the AODP ran in 2002 and half of the casual players ended up getting a daily treble.

    Didn’t you also have a close call last year with the German actress, the Foghat bassist, and Liam Miller?
