    World's Oldest

    By the way, is there any information on how much Alberto weights? He's much larger than any centenarian I've ever seen. Albano is the second oldest person in his country (oldest confirmed and only validated supercentenarian) and Alberto is the fifth oldest person in Portugal. Their parents got to 96 and 95 and have atleast two other centenarians in their family (sister's children). That's what I'd call great genes.

    The 100 Club

    1912 isn't a very strong year for notable centenarians. While 1908 still has Ruth Apilado and 1910 has that strong duo of Stanislaw Kowalski who looks much younger than he is and Disney animator Ruthie Thompson, 1911 still has four notable centenarians: Marita Quiros (former first lady of Costa Rica, recently got to 110), Renee Simonot (Catherine Deneuve's mother), Eileen Ash (30s and 40s cricketer) and Robert Marchand (cyclist) 1912 only has two after the death of Horne: Philanthropist Jessie Lichauco and blogger Dagny Carlsson. Meanwhile 1913 has three and they're all men: Pulitzer-winning journalist Vance Trimble, Kannada writer G. Venkatasubbiah and Necropolis author Boris Pahor. 1914 and onwards still have over 10 living notable centenarians each year

    https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2021/03/443456bd50d5-breaking-news-sumo-association-approves-retirement-of-yokozuna-kakuryu.html Has retired due to an injury. We're pretty close to a situation where there are no active Yokozunas as the only active Yokozuna is Hakuhō Shō who recently had COVID and had a kneecap surgery this month. The last two times this has happened were in 1992 and 1931.

    Bob Odenkirk, 58y Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul actor looks like he's aged a lot during the last year or two. Even his voice sounds somewhat different.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    Miska did live with Nykänen during his last years, was like a son to him and was in the same house when Nykänen died, so I'd say he's notable enough for a mention if he's in shitty condition in ICU at age 19

    Six people, six months

    This one is a small game and an experiment. To join you've got to pick six names, the only requirements are that they are over 18, somewhat known (don't have to be celebrities, it's good enough if there's information about their achievements on the internet. A wikipedia page could be good too) and two of them have to be under 100. You can join whenever you want and your 6-month countdown starts after you've posted your name list. Whoever gets all six first wins. You can rejoin with a new list if it's been six months since your last list 1. Kane Tanaka, world's oldest person, 117 2. Fauja Singh, runner, 109 3. Roberta McCain, McCain matriarch, 108 4. Loftollah Golpaygani, grand ayatollah, 101 5. Alex Trebek, tv host, 80 6. Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi, ISIS caliph, 43

    That isn't even that much. Prince Philip, Shane MacGowan, Tony Blair, Robbie Coltrane, Robert De Niro, Sharon Osbourne and Richard O'Sullivan have threads that will reach adulthood this year. How long will we have to wait for them to die?

    Arghton's deadpool

    I'm quite new here, but I am familiar with the concept of deathpools. This one has few rules. You need to choose 250 you think won't be alive on 1st of January 2022. The only rules are that they have to be atleast 18 years old at the time you have chosen them and they have to have an English wikipedia page. Only 20 can be centenarians and ten can be animals, if they happen to have an wikipedia page. The animals don't have to be 18 but animals over 100 count as centenarians. Under 50-year olds are worth 3 points, animals are worth two and over 50-year olds are worth 1 point. You can join whenever you want so I recommend joining right now. After 00:00 GMT 1st of January 2022 the points shall be counted and whoever has the most points wins this. My list: 1. Jonathan, oldest living terrestial animal in the world and turtle, 188. 2.

    Films with entirely dead casts

    Some interesting mentions: A Letter for Evie (1946): This comedy film directed by Jules Dassin (1911-2008) has two alive main actors and both are centenarians. Marsha Hunt (born 1917: 103 years old) is the main actor and Norman Lloyd (born 1914: 106 years old) also has a large role in the movie. Who is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me? (1971): The only main actor alive mentioned on the wikipedia page is the main actor, Dustin Hoffman (born 1937) Saboteur (1942): The only alive main actor of this Hitchcock movie is the actor of the villain (Norman Lloyd as Frank Fry) and the villain dies in the movie. Baby Brother (1927): Cast member Lincoln Plumer died in 1928, while another cast member Mildred Kornman is still alive as of 2021. Post-60s movies with dead/one left main casts? Can't name many but here: Support Your Local Firefighter (1971): Out of the 17 actors mentioned on the wikipedia page of this western film, only one is possibly alive: Dick Curtis was born in 1928, but not much is mentioned about him on the internet. Executive Action (1973): Out of the 5 cast members in this conspiracy thriller film all are dead. And Then There Were None (1974): Only cast member alive is Elke Sommer (born 1940) Swimming to Cambodia (1987): The only actor of this film, Spalding Gray (1941-2004) is long dead. Krapp's Last Tape (2007): Harold Pinter was the only cast member. He died a year after this film was released.

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

    https://www.instagram.com/p/CMxOYadMoVZ/ Tempt One, graffiti artist who has had ALS since 2003 auctioning his art to pay hospital bills. He's been mentioned on this forum a few times and I'm suprised he's still alive. According to another instagram post he now spends all of his time in a hospital bed and communicates through an eye writer tool he also uses to create art.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_Leroy_(actor) Philippe Leroy! Got to 90 last month. Saw him today in a 2009 episode of the Italian crime show Don Matteo starring Terence Hill. Leroy is 90 now, but already looked ancient back then. And apparently he's also still working.
