Possible New Record For World’s Oldest Living Person: 123

The Today Show’s Willard Scott better whip up a special happy birthday surprise, because it looks like there is a new contender for the oldest person who has ever lived (or at least documented).  At 123 years old, Bolivian cattle and sheep herder Carmelo Flores Laura was born on July 16th, 1890, a date that is documented by public records. If verified the Bolivian man will beat out French woman Jeanne Calment who lived to the age of 122. Congratulations to Mr. Laura; good news is you may hold a record; bad news is it may not be for very long.

It’s weird to have to acknowledge for the first time that something exists that for the rest of us is real and tangible and has been sitting in the Nevada dessert for over fifty years. However the US government has officially admitted that the military complex popularly known and made famous in pop culture as “Area 51” exists. In a series of declassified documents Area 51 is acknowledged to be the site of spy plane testing for the government beginning in the 1950’s. The high altitude aircraft were to be equipped with high resolution cameras to take secret nudie pictures of Fidel Castro and other spying activities on America’s enemies.   So Area 51 exists, sadly  they are still holding out on telling us where the alien bodies are being kept!
