Addition of Zhou Youguang[edit]

We finally have a truly notable man over 110 years old and very close to the top 100 (which is a completely arbitrary number, inconsistent with the 10 [Oldest_people#Ten_oldest_people_living], 53 (List_of_oldest_living_people or other cutoffs List_of_supercentenarians_from_the_United_States#Living_American_supercentenarians on related articles, but an IP and DCNZ don't like it. [1] even my correction of the sentence fragment at the start of the article was blind reverted, along with removal of the unnecessary heading containing the unnecessary word "verified" which really means GRG verified. Zhou_Youguang would be one of the only names the list with solid multiple RS's to back up his inclusion. Legacypac (talk) 08:53, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

There is nothing wrong with putting the only Notable person who is almost on the top 100 list as a See Also. The top 100 is arbitrary anyway, and Zhou is clearly a related topic. It was removed again. [2]. Discuss and give a good reason he can't be linked at the bottom, or he goes back on as a See Also. Legacypac (talk) 03:53, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Rubbish! The criteria for inclusion in this list has always been to be in the oldest 100, there is no justification for adding anyone who is not in the top 100. Adding anyone who is not just because they are notable for reasons other than longevity makes NO sense. DerbyCountyinNZ (Talk Contribs) 07:30, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
This kind of thing is exactly what See also sections are for. Legacypac (talk) 07:58, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

If the list of women can have 111 names [3] (due to women who lived the same number of years and days) we can have one See Also here that almost makes the Top 100. Legacypac (talk) 02:11, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

The women's list has 100 names. 100 is not 111. DerbyCountyinNZ (Talk Contribs) 04:43, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
No the women's list has 111 names, with 100 numbers. Legacypac (talk) 09:41, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Masamitsu Yoshida[edit]

An IP has correctly added Masamitsu Yoshida who is now Japan's (and maybe the world's) oldest man. I know he is not "verified" by GRG but that does not matter since the Japanese govt, AP and others are reporting his age and status.[4]

188.70.25.146 (talk) 15:45, 18 April 2016 (UTC) नई दिल्ली: अपनी जिंदगी हर किसी को प्यारी होती हैं पर हर किसी कि मौत कभी ना कभी आनी जरुर हैं। लेकिन अगर कोई अपनी उम्र से ज्यादा जी ले तो लोग उसको चमत्कार मानने लगते हैं। हम आपको ऐसे इंसान के बारे में बताने जा रहे हैं कि जिसकी उम्र 181 साल की हो गई लेकिन वह जिंदा है। इन बुजुर्ग का नाम है महाष्टा रासी जिन्होंने अपनी जिंदगी के 181 साल पूरे कर लिए हैं।

महाष्टा मुरासी नाम के ये व्यक्ति कहते हैं कि मौत मेरे घर का रास्ता भूल गई है। मैं इंतजार कर रहा हूं लेकिन कम्बखत आती ही नहीं है। इनकी उम्र को देखते हुए लोग इन्हें दैवीय शक्ति बताते हैं। वहीं खुद मुरासी बताते हैं कि उनका जन्म जनवरी 1835 में बेंगलुरु में हुआ था। सन 1903 में महाष्टा मुरासी बेंगलुरु को छोड़कर वाराणसी रहने आ गए और तभी से वे वाराणसी में रह रहे हैं। हां उन्होंने 1957 तक एक मोची काम किया। जब वह अपने काम से रिटायर हुए तब उनकी उम्र 122 साल थी।

गिनीज बुक ऑफ विश्व रिकॉर्ड के मुताबिक पृथ्वी पर महाष्टा सबसे बुजुर्ग इंसान हैं। मुरासी का कहना है कि उन्हें जिंदा रहते हुए एक लंबा अरसा बीत चुका है। इस बीच उनके परनाती-परपोतों को भी मरे एक अरसा बीत चुका है। महाष्टा कहते हैं कि अब तो ऐसा लगता है मुझे मौत कभी आएगी ही नहीं।

मुरासी की जांच करने वाले अंतिम डॉक्टर भी 1971 में मर चुके हैं। इसलिए उनकी पुरानी मेडिकल जांचों की फाइल अब मुश्किल से ही उपलब्ध हो पाती हैं। मुरासी को जानने वाले लोग कहते हैं कि इनके पास शायद कोई दैवीय शक्ति है। कुछ लोगों का कहना है कि इन्‍हें भीष्‍म पितामह की तरह कोई वरदान मिला हुआ है।

Youngest living oldest man[edit]

I wonder if there was any moment in the (recorded) history when the oldest man alive was 111 years old or even 110 years old or younger. Anyways, there must be a moment in history when the oldest man alive was younger than the oldest man alive from any other moment and it would be very interesting to know who was that person and when it happened. Such a moment should be searched at the moments when the oldest man alive dies. The second place (who becomes automatically the first place) might be the winner of the youngest living oldest people of all times :) —  Ark25  (talk) 00:39, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

This is an answer I got: "Since 1985: Joe Thomas got the title at 109. Since 1999: John Painter, 111. 2000: Tomoji Tanabe, 111. 2010: Alexander Imich, 111. Before 1980, it wasn't uncommon for people to inherit the title at 109 or younger", this is really fun knowing! —  Ark25  (talk) 01:31, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
