Saw a story today that the oldest man in the world just turned 112. If I were to make it to that age I would have lived and second 56 years.  Hell, if I can still see, hear and wipe my ass at 112, I’d do it.

I checked Wikipedia and saw that the 10 oldest humans are all women and surprisingly six are Americans.
