World record turnover

Would it be that sporting records fell so quickly, but today we have a new world’s oldest person, Edna Parker. Yone Minagawa lasted six months at the head of the list, much better than her predecessor (only a few days in that position). I have blogged on this intense contest previously, here.

  1. It would surely make more sense – and require less updating – to keep track of the oldest age anyone has lived. That would be Jeanne Calment’s 122. (Of course, you have to exclude undocumented cases, e.g. Methusaleh, though that issue also applies to claims to be the world’s currently living oldest person.)
