It comes from a message from Australia's top longevity researcher, meaning that it is most likely true.

What an exciting job they must have, ringing round a bunch of nursing homes every day going "Is she dead yet...yet...yet...how about now...?"

 

On an unrelated point for which I cannot be arsed to find a proper thread, I was reading this article in which a couple of death boffins chat about shuffling off mortal coils and whatnot, while gently stroking their beards and gazing into the middle distance.

Wikipedia has removed the death notice, and I couldn't find any other reports of her death.

 

I did find that New Zealand's oldest woman, Ruby Billings, died recently though.

Moloko Temo, who is the oldest claim for the world's oldest person title at 134, has died. Her family say they are now trying even harder to verify her claim with Guinness... pretty desperate if you ask me...

No, 'cos that would make them over 300 years old!

 

Still, Happy Birthday Henry.

 

As an aside, Henry's local paper, 'The Argus' mentions his birthday on the front page, most of which is given over to a story about a man who's found an old cess-pit buried in his garden.

Henry's seemngly perpetual doddering and Gazza's persistent teasing of those of us picking him for deadpool duties have got me thinking. D'ya reckon if one of us told Gazza that Allingham had called him a 'worthless young prick,' or similar we'd have a points bonanza as PG slapped HA to death, and was immediately lynched for his efforts?

With Henry hogging the headlines, we forgot about Harry's 111th birthday two days ago. :D

Who, Henry Allingham? Going on the last video from BBC it wouldn't surprise me, but what sources?

Can't really say because of confidentiality, but my source is from people who work in the nursing home he lives in.

Oh well, it was a good run anyway. 113 years is a pretty impressive age to live to.

 

When he goes, there will be a maximum of just four confirmed WWI veterans left... I wonder how long it will be before the last one goes, and who the last one will be...
