    People I Was Surprised To Find Are Still Alive

    You seem to have bought into this idea that tall people don't live long. That's not really true. Yes, there's a slightly higher chance that people (particularly men) who are considerably tall will die a few years before their shorter counterparts, but it's not as big a factor as you're letting on. Christopher Lee lived to 93 and he was 6'5 (1.96m). Angus Scrimm (the actor in drol's display pic) was also around the same height and he lived to 89/90. If you're healthy and look after your diet, and exercise etc. then your circulation should be good. Therefore it's not difficult for these people to live to their 80s, 90s etc. A lot of living centenarians won't have their heights on record but Philippe de Gaulle is 101 and he was 6'2 (Charles de Gaulle was 6'4).

    Political Frailty

    A useless fact. The death of Baroness Berners means that there are now just 10 living female hereditary peers (in their own right). The 21st Lady Saltoun, 92 The 28th Baroness Willoughby de Eresby, 88 The 10th Baroness Howard de Walden, 87 The 11th Baroness Arlington, 83 The 31st Countess of Mar, 82 The 8th Baroness Braye, 81 The Marchioness of Lothian/The 16th Lady Herries of Terregles, 78 The 13th Lady Kinloss, 65 The 9th Lady Balfour of Burleigh, 49 The 29th Baroness Dacre, 39 They've been dwindling in numbers for some years. Rewind back several decades ago and there were many more. Why that was the case I'm not entirely sure, but my educated guess would be that two consecutive world wars wiped out a lot of the men, and with certain peerages the women were able to inherit them. Following the retirements of Lady Saltoun in 2014, and the Countess of Mar in 2020, there are no female hereditary peers currently sitting in the House of Lords.

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    Edmund White, a favourite punt on here since the early 1990s, has just outlived the co-author of "The Joy of Gay Sex". Charles Silverstein (wiki) died on January 30, aged 87 or 88. Surely a NYT obit on the way?

    Why are you allowed to call yourself an old man but when I do you accuse me of playing with faeces in kindergarten?!

    I can’t tell if you’re trolling or not. The list is called “List of living centenarians”. It contains two statements – 1) they’re alive 2) they’re 100+. Wiki is an encyclopaedia that is built using reliable sources. There are 1000s of biographies of people on there born in 1923, 1922, 1921, 1920 etc. with no death date on their page because (usually because they’re so obscure). To suggest that they should all be featured on a living centenarian list because there’s nothing to prove they’re deceased would defeat the whole purpose of the list in the first place as it would then be composed almost entirely of people who are already dead. That’s why evidence of having reached a 100th birthday is needed in order to list someone there.

    UK Singles Chart

    It was really hard to research who sung on those hits! They were pretty much session singers back then and paid next to nothing so they would swap people in and out all the time.
