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.
