Bolivian man may be the world's all-time oldest

If this Bolivian man is really 123, he's the oldest person on record

Carmelo Flores Laura is pretty sure he "should be about 100 years old or more." But, according to Bolivia's public records, he was born July 16, 1890, and turned 123 last month. If that's accurate, he's the oldest person to ever shake a cane at meddling kids. A lifetime of chewing coca leaf is apparently the key to longevity, though Flores also credits his active lifestyle. "I walk a lot, that's all. I go out with the animals," the cattle and sheep herder said. If he really is as old as his birth certificate suggests, Flores beats Jeanne Calment, who holds the current Guinness record for oldest verified age. She died in 1997 after 122 years and 164 days.

Makes us tired just thinking about it.

Iíve heard that if you argue with an idiot, after a while it is hard to tell who the real idiot is.
