    Default World's Oldest Man Dies at 114

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110415/...d_s_oldest_man

    A truly unique and noble individual. It is sad to see him go.

    Embrace change, even when the change slaps you in the face. ("Every change is good.")
    • Eat two meals a day ("That's all you need.")

    • Work as long as you can ("That money's going to come in handy.")

    Help others ("The more you do for others, the better shape you're in.")

    Then there's the hardest part. It's a lesson Breuning said he learned from his grandfather: Accept death.

    "We're going to die. Some people are scared of dying. Never be afraid to die. Because you're born to die," he said.
    Very interesting and very true. I fight against change tooth and nail, even though I know that I need to let things go and adapt better. Hilariously enough I actually feel better (most of the time) when life is changing.... But I sure do fight it when it first arrives!

    Thanks for sharing my snuggly friend!

    Indeed, a man of his age surely knows of some of lifes greatest secrets, we should appreciate and ebrace them; thus I encourage you to accept change, as I may now start eating only two meals a day

    Thanks for sharing my snuggly friend!
    Anytime

    I admire those that have lived that long. I've always wondered which personality type usually lives the longest. Somewhere I read an article about the health secrets of centenarians. Some were totally into health and some weren't. Think I'm somewhere in between

    Makes me wonder if there is still anyone alive from the 1800's?

    I think there might be a couple other people that are near that age group... but certainly not many! Kinda bizarre to think about. Especially since his parents both died so young.

    I am concerned that I am going to live for a long time. My grandparents on my moms side lived to 87 (45 years with MS) and 91. My dad's side are still alive at 92 and 90. I had a great-great-uncle who died at 105 a few years ago.... and a great-great-aunt who died at 99, a few days short of her 100th.

    I really don't want to live that long. I WANT TO EXPLORE THE UNIVERSE!!!

    The possibility is really low, so I doubt it, considering he's the world's oldest man.

    he was the oldest man but the second oldest person.

    Either way, the chance of someone from the 1800's still being alive is unlikely.

    I guess we know a woman outlived him
