Untitled[edit]

2000 is not a separate millennium from the 1800s. The "second millennium", in which Sarah Knauss would have lived, did not begin until 1 January 2001. This should be corrected. (unsigned comment)

This has already been taken care of~though. Extremely sexy 19:17, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
That's your opinion. If you count the first millenium from 1BC it IS correc — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.149.199.230 (talk) 22:08, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
You could just as easily say the first millenium was from -1bc to 99ad. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.26.124.4 (talkcontribs) 05:46, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

What are the words "ugly bitch" doing there at the beginning????? (unsigned comment)

I removed "ugly bitch." Um, the second millennium began 1 January 1001. jaknouse 21:12, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
Indeed, but it is her second millennium that was actually meant. Extremely sexy 19:17, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Copryright infringement?[edit]

The text in this article is taken almost verbatim from the news article at article on the CBS News website. 67.149.103.119 01:44, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

This page is very barren considering she is the longest lived American ever. 69.113.183.72 (talk) 05:46, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
No it isn't. Sadly, supercentenarians are mostly ordinary people, so there's not much to find out about them. Actually, this article is quite good for a super-c, considering that only about 50% of super-c articles actually get photos. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Brendanology (talkcontribs) 11:37, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

WP: Women's History Assessment Commentary[edit]

This article was rated as Start-class, for its lack of citations and because the text is poorly worded, confusing, and/or needs clarification. For example, the text implies that Ms. Knauss was actually aboard the RMS Titanic when it sank in 1912. If she was not, then she did not "live through" the incident.

Knauss' photo[edit]

I think the picture on the article doesn't do justice to Sarah Knauss, who was known as an elegant and dignified woman until her very end. I believe it would be better to choose another picture like this one for example: http://news.bbc.co.uk/olmedia/80000/images/_80119_old300.jpg which portraits Sarah Knauss aged 117 in 1997.
