    Hitchard Rutchinson One time I was born was a 132 premature baby at the age of 21 weeks and 3 days.

    Memilio Arquez One time I was 112 years and 127 days old.

    May the Lord be with you.

    Nice set of age-related facts today. Richard is, by the way, the most premature birth ever to survive.

    When the Chicago Cubs won the World Series in 2016, Don Millo said, “What? Again?” [Those of you not familiar with baseball history should research the meaning of this.]

    Aha. Now we knows the secret to long life. Rare gut bacteria that prevent infections.

    And this means that one should have the guts to live beyond 100.

    Besides the signature gut bacteria, none of them got shot, stabbed, set on fire, drowned, hanged, hit by a train, or any of the other manners of death we’re blessed with. Until they get a bit past 100, then..

    Take care, may tax collector Cyrus McGreedord be with you, and gesundheit.

    There you go, folks. The secret to a long life isn’t in us. It’s in our symbionts. The tiny critters that control our nervous systems, our sense of smell and taste, and our immune systems.

    Who’s the real symbiont?

    Fish tank chemicals, Clorox, horse dewormer, someone is surely going to lick his shower floor after reading this.

    Here’s my true story for the day! Quite a few years ago the wife and I were at home watching TV and the phone rang! I said “I’ll get it” and proceeded to the kitchen to answer the phone. I said hello and this very seductive female voice said “Hi honey whatcha doin?” I said "nothing how bout you? ( I’m having fun now and I’m gonna string her along.) She says “I’m lonely and hungry!” “Do you wanna come over and bring a pizza?” I ,said sure……..where do you live? She, in a very surprised voice, said “Chuck?” I said No, I’m Joe! She said AAARRRGGGHHHHH! and hung up! My wife said “who was that?” I said I don’t know somebody wanted to know if I liked Pizza! My wife bought it believe it or not which is where I came in! And now I bid you adieu!

    So, has anyone checked the gut bacteria of Emilio “Don Millo” Flores Márquez (now 113)? Sounds like a reasonable cross-check for the Japanese researchers to do!

    Our hospital policy was when a patient was having pregnancy problems came to the ER, 20+ weeks went to delivery first. Unless the mother’s life was at risk. Less then 20 weeks was treated as miscarriage.

    I’m surprised. It seems the oldest living person on the planet is usually closer to 120 years. But, the ages of some can’t be verified.

    Emilio has passed away.

    Researchers are currently confirming the successor to the title, and further information will follow soon.

    The oldest person ever to have lived is Jeanne Calment (France), who lived to be 122 years and 164 days.

    The oldest man ever is Jiroemon Kimura (Japan), who was born on 19 April 1897 and passed away at the age of 116 years and 54 days on 12 June 2013.

    I wonder how they were able to investigate the 7,000,000+ people on the planet to determine that Sr. Marquez is the oldest.
