Wow. Makes you wonder how many former state politicians there are in the U.S. of extreme ages that we don't know about.

He was born on August 8th according to the man himself, so we have to wait a month for celebrations. Plus, he is the third after Yasuhiro Nakasone and Hyun Soong-jong, not the second.

One of the few golden age actors, Nehemiah Persoff, turns 100 toady :birthday:

He played in over 200 films and his career spanned 52 years.

He was in On The Waterfront in 1954, as a cab driver – a classic movie. From Star Trek’s Next Generation TV series to The Last Temptation Of Christ, Little House On The Prairie to Hawaii Five-O or The High Chaparral,  Gangster boss Little Bonaparte in Some Like It Hot, The Untouchables, he’s been in everything.

 

Welcome to the 100-club!

Has anyone else noticed a big decrease in number of famous centenarian deaths this year, especially among the 105+ people? It makes me feel like we are approaching time when people won't die anymore.

Hau Pei-Tsun turns 100 today. A lot of articles, but few words on his health. He completed a book of memories before suffering the stroke in April. Today his son represented him at the celebrations as he could not attend. Can't understand if he is still in hospital, but surely is not too well.

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..

105-year-old former first lady of Colombia Cecilia Caballero Blanco finally carks it. DDP pick.

I wonder if she was the longest lived first lady ever. I know there was a wife of a governor - general who also lived to 105 years but I can't find her on the internet anymore. There is also Soong Mei - ling who was 105 or 106 years old and Juliana Young Koo who lived to 111 but she was only a spouse of state leader, not a first lady.

Three famous actors all over 100. Who will depart the stage first? Kirk Douglas, Olivia de Havilland (the only adult actor still with us from Gone with the Wind) or Norman Lloyd?

Out of those three I would say Kirk Douglas then Norman Lloyd and finally Olivia de Havilland.
