    World's Oldest

    From the "Oldest people alive as of 11th of February 2021" list the first one out of the 14 listed is dead: https://www.blogdomatuto.com.br/pages/artigo.php?p1=39248-familiares-lamenta-o-falecimento-de-dona-diolinda-de-114-anos-uma-das-mulheres-mais-idosa-da-cidade-de-gravata Unvalidated Diolinda Maria da Conceicao died already on 4th of March. Claimed to be 114 and she did look like it. Died six days before her possible 115th birthday. If confirmed, she would've been the 7th oldest person alive at the time of her death. Also: longevity claimant Julia Amelia da Conceicao (same surname) died yesterday at the claimed age of 115, near her "116th": https://www.miseria.com.br/ultimas-noticias/cariri/morre-em-juazeiro-perto-dos-116-anos-a-mulher-mais-idosa-do-ceara/

    The 100 Club

    January 1921 births seem to be a much stronger group than February or March 1921 births. There are twelve people with wikipedia articles born in January 1921 who are still alive plus two notable ones who don't have English wikipedia pages but are listed on the living centenarians list. February 1921 has eight centenarians, but atleast Hazel McCallion and Herbert Köfer are still pretty active and in good shape, atleast mentally. March 1921 has five this far

    Buzz Aldrin

    Aldrin's a big name and unlike all the mainly healthy 30-60 year olds who've got a thread in case they prematurely die/have had bad health problems or other problems once (Meghan, Robert Bales, Victoria Beckham, David Cameron, Clooney, Culkin, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, Katie Hopkins, Joseph Kony, Mohammad Mushtaq, Keanu Reeves...) he won't go on forever and we'll all probably live long enough to see that red "dead" sign next to old Buzz's name in five years

    The 100 Club

    I'm almost willing to bet that we'll run out out of Chaco War veterans pretty soon- much sooner than the Spanish Civil War veterans. I think it's best not to make a thread for them as the war wasn't as notable as other wars that have threads and they're all centenarians by now. We've lost a few of them during the last months including the last nurse of the war six days ago. The surviving six (known) Bolivian chaco war veterans are: José Pradel Loayza (born in July 1914, 106) Celebrated his 106th in july: pictures. Samuel Chuquimia Murillo (born in August 1916, 104) Pedro Pocubé Muller (born in 1916, 104) Despite looking frail, still able to talk well in this video from january 2021: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0TVB4IrhQc Emeterio Ernesto Talavera Choque (born around 1918, 102) Still looks pretty great Miguel Siñaniz Vigabriel (born around 1918, 102) Can't find nearly anything about Paraguayan veterans, but I mentioned Basilio Gonzalez before and this article mentions two others, aged 107 and 106.
