Yesterday my man Walter Breuning here turned 114 years old. 114!! Like he was born in (carry the 7......) I dunno 1731? Right around there. No seriously I LOVE these stories and interviews with the reigning 'World's Oldest Person.' In my opinion whoever has lived through 3 centuries needs to write a book about their life experiences. Like this guy was around when pollio was a problem. Pollio! And you couldn't use WebMD to figure out if you had the symptoms for it or not. You know what you had to do when you couldn't think of the name of the silent film Charlie Chaplin was in? Go to the library! No google. No wikipedia. If Walter wanted to see what his friends were doing to lunch he had to call them, not just log on to facebook. Can you imagine?
In all seriousness these cases are amazing to me. Think of all the things that were invented between 1896 and now. Not to mention the history this guy has seen. He was already 23 years old when World War I ended! He saw the roaring 20's, the depression, World War II, and the disco era. Seriously what's worse the depression or disco? Awww I'm just joking around, we all know disco was worse. When he was born women and black people couldn't vote, cars didn't exist, and Windows 3.1 was the only option for your computer operating system. So let's raise a glass to Walter Breuning's 114th. Cheers!
PS: LOVE how Walter has a facebook page with a TON of ladies on his like list. 114 years old and still spinning better game than me. Well played Walter. Well played.
Double PS: You know what I'm most jealous of? Dude's had 114 birthday cakes made for him.
