132-Year-Old Woman Has Died (Well, Maybe)

A woman from the remote Georgian village of Sachino who claimed to be 132 years old died last week of—believe it or not—old age. Sources say that if Antisa Khvichava was really as old as she claimed to be she would have been the oldest known human being in history.

However, replacement papers of Khvichava’s birth certificate and passport have caused some critics to question the accuracy of her age. Local officials, friends, neighbors and decedents all support her claims, though.

If Khvichava’s calculations were in fact correct, she would have been just 10 years younger than former Communist leader Vladimir Lenin, 31 years old at the time the Titanic sunk, 61 when the Soviet Union joined World War II, and 111 at the point in which the Soviet Union collapsed.

Officially, the oldest person ever to live was a woman from France by the name of Jeanne Calment, who lived to be 122 years and 164 days old before passing away in 1977.
