Soviet era and Biblical supercentenarians.[edit]

I recall during the 70s hearing about high percentages of people, or indeed whole villages, in the Soviet Union were living well over 100. It was dismissed at the time as Soviet propaganda which was proven at the end of the Cold War. But this info should be included briefly, even if only to discredit the legend. The other "source" of legend is the Bible, with claims ranging from a dubious 130 years up to a ridiculous 900 for others. --Dmol (talk) 09:15, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

How many verified supercentenarians?[edit]

This article says there are 52 verified cases, yet it links to a page listing 100 verified cases. What's the correct number? --2605:A000:D141:3800:9450:4878:E749:C80 (talk) 03:14, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
