How many people who were born in the 1800s are left? We should be getting down to the last 10 or so.


There are eight left. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_living_supercentenarians


That is just strange to me in a way. Out of 6 billion people left, there are 8 from the 19th century. Just think if you were one of those 8.

Probably within the next year, there will be none.

With the way the world is fat and unhealthy today, no way any of these people make to even 900.

Pretty awesome!

As reinforcement of how old she is, her mention that she gave up driving after going in reverse by pushing the wrong pedal is likely a reference to a Ford Model T, which had a separate floor pedal that engaged reverse. Darn, lady, you gave up early. :lol:

RIP former WWII veteran and NFL Hall Of Famer Art Donovan

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100000 ... dies-at-88

"Fatso."

That's what everyone called him. And for those of you sitting with an iPad on your lap or scrolling down on your cell phone, finding out who Fatso was -- former Baltimore Colts defensive tackle Art Donovan -- makes for time well spent.

One of the funniest professional athletes you'll ever meet, Donovan could hold court as well as any player ever seen (or heard) in a post-game locker room. Unfortunately, Donovan died Sunday night at the age of 88, the Baltimore Ravens announced.



Art Donovan through the years
Take a look at the best photos of Art Donovan through the years.
His wasn't solely the story of a cutup. Donovan was a veteran of the Pacific Theatre in World War II. He also was a disruptive force in the middle of pro football's best team of the late 1950s.

How disruptive was Donovan? Enough to make the Pro Football Hall of Fame in just his second year of eligibility. That was in 1968, the Hall's sixth class ever, meaning there was a backlog of players from the '20s, '30s and '40s waiting to get in. We're talking first-ballot material here.

RIP former Red Wings/Lighting/Sharks forward Shawn Burr.

DETROIT - Shawn Burr, whose upbeat personality made him a fan favorite during his time with the Red Wings, has passed away.

Burr was 47. He had battled cancer in recent years, but died Monday evening after an accident during the weekend.

RIP musician, songwriter, and producer “Cowboy” Jack Clement at age 82. Over his career, Clement wrote songs or produced records for an astounding array of artists, including Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Roy Orbison, Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Tom Jones, and Townes Van Zandt. He arguably “discovered” both Jerry Lee Lewis and Charlie Pride, and he recorded the songs “When Love Came To Town,” “Angel of Harlem,” and “Love Rescue Me” on U2’s album Rattle and Hum at the specific request of the band’s members. He also produced and recorded Johnny Cash's blockbuster hit “Ring of Fire.”

I tried gluten-free beer a week or so ago. Apparently 'gluten' is a German word that best translates as 'flavor'. Wife and I took one sip each and threw out the rest of the bottle. It was one of the most terrible things I've ever tasted in my life. I think I'll keep the gluten and die happy somewhere between 80 and 100. :wink:

I should remind everyone that when I say gluten-free beer was one of the worst things I've ever tasted, that is coming from a person who has eaten balut and natto.

(I now return the thread of death back to its intended purpose)

Gluten free beer is usually rice based so it tasted like sake to me. Can't stand it and wont drink it. I also wont eat gluten free again. Sure it's better for you but some things I wont sacrifice.

I tried one of Dogfish's gluten free beers and it was one of the few Dogfish beers that I was not impressed with, perhaps even bordering on awful.

RIP the guy that did the James Bond parachuting at the London Olympics. Apparently he was wing-diving....you couldn't pay me a million dollars to do something that insane.
