What's on your mind?
I found out that she is pending to become validated by the GRG and pending to become the oldest person ever and the world’s oldest living person. If she is validated, Kane Tanaka, the current oldest living person in the world, would lose the title of world’s oldest living person and Jeanne Calment would lose the title of oldest person ever. Also if she is validated she would have been the oldest living person in the world since the death of Jiroemon Kimura, and all the world’s oldest living person titleholders from Misao Okawa to Kane Tanaka would have never held the title and Tanaka would have her GWR/WOP title taken away.
Does anyone know what Lawrence Brooks’ experience was like with Hurricane Ida? I know in 2005 during Katrina he evacuated by helicopter and returned to New Orleans a little over a year after Katrina, but what was his experience like with Ida?
can someone kindly explain to me how to add a green box (living) on the tables, i can't in any way
I found a 116 year old longevity claimant from India who should be added to Gerontology Wiki. He just died recently. He claimed to have been the world’s oldest living man.
I found a 169 year old longevity myth. Can someone add him as a Gerontology Wiki article?
I really hope he survives Hurricane Ida since it is gonna be a powerful hurricane and it could be the worst storm in Louisiana since Katrina. He has survived Katrina. If he survived Katrina I am sure he will survive Ida, since Louisiana is used to hurricanes but not like Katrina or Ida.
I know that Saturnino de la Fuente Garcia is the oldest living man in the world since the death of Emilio Flores Marquez. I just wished that Saturnino was validated and recognized by the GWR as the oldest man in the world. I found an article that admits that he’s the oldest living man in the world. Wikipedia also says that he is the oldest man in the world since Emilio’s death on August 12.
Just found that French man who died on the 7th of April 2021 and who was born on the 24th of November 1902, making him the oldest man ever and the 4th oldest person ever, dying at the age of 118.
Here is two extract of his birth certificate that I found on the online "Archive de Paris" plus his death certificate, published by Bobigny's city (where he died), referenced at act 205.
What do you all think ? this case seems interesting, maybe trustworthy…
The Gerontology Wiki is intended to be an encyclopedia, not a 'fandom' site. Unfortunately the dumbing-down of the population continues with the latest software downgrade. I suggest Gerontology Wiki members look for ways to return the software back to the old system.
This new "format" makes it more difficult to login and lowers the intent of quality. Unfortunately this is a trend in "crowdsourced" materials to move away from quality and to "fandom". UGH!
Dorothea Gertrud Ryffel-Escher was an anonymous Swiss supercentenerian until her death. Does anyone have more information from her? Does anyone know why she is not listed in the list of the oldest Swiss who have ever lived? Thank you very much for your reply!
Since Emilio Flores Marquez, the oldest living man in the world since the death of Bob Weighton on 28 May 2020, has died on 12 August this year (4 days after turning 113), I think it is time that the Guinness World Records, Gerontology Wiki and the Gerontology Research Group now recognize Saturnino de la Fuente Garcia as the oldest living man in the world, since he is at the top of the chart for the oldest living men in the world following Emilio’s death.
Imagine if kane tanaka lived until 123
