    Two raw eggs a day...

    If that's what it takes to live to 117, count me out.

    RIP, though.

    RIP lady Emma. You deserve it surviving 90 Italian governments (almost one per year) across 3 centuries. I guess it time to eat more eggs. [grin]

    When I was a young lad, there were many people around that were born in the 19th Century.

    Funny how nobody ever holds the record of "worlds oldest person" for very long.

    After the person passes away, do they take the cane back and give it to the next oldest person ?

    Yes. It's the town's cane that the oldest resident gets to keep until their demise.

    It's the kiss of death.

    If it's a Boston Post Cane, I believe they do. I don't think they actually "demand" it back, but most families return it to the town so it can be passed on to someone else.

    But in normal human years, he's at least 114.

    Big deal! I once held the title of world's youngest person, but then someone else came along and stole it from me.


    To put it into perspective, this woman was 50 when Sky was born.

    Maybe she's SKY's mother. Jack.
