World's Oldest Person Dies

Eunice Sanborn, who outlived three husbands, was 114 years old when she passed away Monday at her home in Texas, according to caretaker David French. Or was she 115?
Census records show Sanborn was born on July 20, 1896, in Lake Charles, La., according to the Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group, which listed Sanborn as the world's oldest person.

But French said Sanborn always maintained the Census Bureau had made a mistake and she was really born in 1895. She celebrated what she believed was her 115th birthday on July 20, Agence France-Presse reported.

Either way, with Sanborn's death, the oldest person in the world is now 114-year-old Besse Cooper of Georgia. Link

Whoops, I thought I was commenting on the post with the hobbit house. Just to clarify, I do NOT want to live inside of an old lady.
