Claims Turkish woman is 125 years old
I am feeling my age, the aches and pains after my daily 10k walk and I find my self often acting like a grumpy old man especial when there is a power outage in the morning so I can't start brewing coffee.
Well it seems I am really middle age at 63 this report from turkey confirm just that. The woman is twice my age unless the information is wrong.
A 125-year-old woman, who could be the oldest person ever recorded, has been found living in Turkey's remote Kurdish region, local authorities say.
Halime Solmaz was born on July 1, 1884, and lives in the village of Besiri in the southeast, local registry office director Irfan Ertas told Turkish newspapers.
Whether or not her age can be verified remains to be seen, as public records from the time of the Ottoman empire can prove hard to come by.
According to the Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group - recognised as the leading authority on "supercentenarians" by the Guinness Book of World Records - the oldest person ever was Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997 at the age of 122 years 164 days.
