Guess who died again? That's right, the World's Oldest Person.

Someone needs to investigate this perpetual cycle of dying and reanimating.

I think it'd be funny to have a dark comedy about a killer who only kills the world's oldest person, and he gets frustrated when no-one notices.

Perhaps we can have some fun with this and predict when the next one to go.

With Sanborn's death, the "oldest living person" designation goes to Besse Cooper of Monroe, Georgia, according to the GRG.

I think that statistically, "World's Oldest Person" is also the "World's Most Dangerous Job".

Being the world's oldest person isnt a job you hold onto for very long. There is always someone creeping up behind you.

Dead again:

A Brazilian woman ranked by Guinness World Records as the world's oldest person died Tuesday at the age of 114.

Maria Gomes Valentim was born in 1896 in Carangola, a city in southeast Brazil, where she lived her whole life. She was just weeks away from celebrating what would have been her 115th birthday.

Valentim died of pneumonia, according to the Gerontology Research Group, which keeps track of the world's oldest people.

With her passing, Besse Cooper of Monroe, Georgia, regains her title as the world's oldest. She was bested by Valentim in May when officials were able to verify the Brazilian woman's age. Cooper is 114 years and 229 days, according to Guinness World Records.

Valentim married Joao Valentim in 1913 and was widowed in 1946. They had one son together, four grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren, Guinness World Records said.

She credited her long life to a healthy diet, which included coffee, bread, fruit, milk with linseed and an occasional glass of wine.

Guinness World Records said Valentim was Brazil's first supercentenarian to get official recognition. A supercentenarian is anyone over the age of 110. There are fewer than 90 such people confirmed living in the world right now.

The oldest person to have ever lived, according to Guinness World Records, was Jeanne Louise Calment. She passed away in southern France in 1997 at the age of 122.

There was an episode of Monk where the world's oldest person was killed in order for the second oldest person to hold the record. Or something equally ridiculous like that.

Hmm, there's that Besse Cooper again. It sounds like she's killing them off after they get older than her.

World's oldest person dies at 117 in Japan

March 31, 2015

The world's oldest person, Misao Okawa, died in Japan on Wednesday, a month after celebrating her 117th birthday.

The nursing home where she lived in Osaka said she breathed her last around 7am (2200 GMT Tuesday).

On the occasion of her birthday early last month, Okawa, a mother of three, grandmother of four and great-grandmother of six, was one of only a handful of people still alive who had been born in the 19th century.

Her birth on March 5, 1898 predated the Wright brothers' first powered human flight by five years, she was already a teenager when World War I broke out and in her 70s by the time of the first moon landing.

When she turned 114, she was officially recognised by Guinness World Records as the oldest woman in the globe.

Japan, known for the longevity of its people, is home to the world's oldest man -- Sakari Momoi, who celebrated his 112th birthday in February.

In 2013, life expectancy for women in Japan was 86.61, the longest in the world followed by Hong Kong women, according to the health ministry.

For men it was 80.21, the fourth longest, after men in Hong Kong, Iceland and Switzerland.

The world's oldest person is now believed to be American Gertrude Weaver, who is reportedly 116 years old.
