    World's Oldest Man Dies

    Well this is a headline that often comes up, but it always makes me pause and think. This man was born in 1896 (the 19th century!), imagine that, the life he has led and the world he has seen change.

    BBC NEWS | UK | Obituary: Henry Allingham

    Henry Allingham - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Allingham credited "cigarettes, whisky and wild, wild women — and a good sense of humour" for his longevity.
    I should be ok then.

    Imagine. What a life.

    His guidelines are dubious though.

    World's oldest man dies in US at age 112
    September 15, 2013

    GRAND ISLAND, New York (AP) - Guinness World Records says the former musician and coal miner certified as the world's oldest man has died. Salustiano Sanchez-Blazquez was 112. Guinness consultant Robert Young says Sanchez-Blazquez died Friday at a nursing home in Grand Island, New York.

    Nicknamed "Shorty," Sanchez-Blazquez became the world’s oldest man when Jiroemon Kimura died in June at age 116.

    Sanchez-Blazquez was born June 8, 1901, in the village of El Tejado de Bejar, Spain. He moved to Cuba at 17, then to the United States in 1920 where he worked the coal mines of Lynch, Kentucky. He eventually moved to New York.

    He had two children, seven grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.
