    ^I was a bit confused by that too.

    That`s so cool, they have been alive for everything I learned in history last year. I wonder if any of them like computers, or play video games, or own an ipod or cell phone. I hope I can live into the next century.

    that was an awesome link ... should get more like this...my fave was number 90
    "At 102, he was walking ten miles a day.
    Now he walks three miles a day and can still
    read the bottom three lines on an eye chart.
    He gave up drinking in his 60s,
    but smoked into his 80s." Now thats very cool .....

    He walks a mile to church every Sunday
    in his black cowboy boots,
    white suit, pink tie
    and Stetson hat.

    "I don`t drink, smoke or chase women;"
    he says, "they chase me."

    I like art and stuff so I was just wondering...What the hell was the photographer thinking?? He/she made these people look scary. They are right up close to the camera some of them. A few look really nice though. Just thought that the artist could have made the people look a bit more dignified rather than silly.

    Cool link. Love some of their stories.

    i think we are all rather confused about the whole age issue, as some of them are said to be 40 or 50 odd which isnt as old as they should be to get on the site lol, however i think this is a bloody good idea and we need more of it, respect to those who actually bothered to document this stuff

    #90 is my favourite.

    1) He looks like you`d imagine God would.
    2) He said, "I still chase good-looking women around. I just can`t catch up with them — my legs don`t work fast enough."

    "First, I was simply interested in taking portraits of people who appear worn beyond their years by living extraordinarily hard lives. Those experiences drew me to centenarians, and on to supercentenarians and their stories."

    ...So that would explain the forty-something-year-olds on there. I think it`s an excellent concept- Really makes you think about what it must be like to be that old.

    the 40 yr olds are in there because this was not intnded to be about living 3 centuries. According to the artist, it was intended to show people who looked weathered beyond their years due to hardships in life. The artist just developed a particular interest in supercentenarians (sp?)

    Hmm.. for me to live through 3 centuries I`d need to live till I was.... 117 so really unlikely.

    For my youngest brother though, he was born in 1998. So just 102 ish for him.

    Actually pretty possible.

    Actually, how cool is it, we all probably know someone who might live into 2100.

    We`ll be saying things like "I remember when not everyone had the internet", and "I remember we used to have these things called Teevee, and we had countries... they`re kinda like what you kids call companies nowadays".

    the youngest u can be to live in 3 centuries is 100 years and 2 days.
    (or 100 years and 2 seconds depending on how precise u wanna be)

    December 31st 1899 to January 1st 2000 - thats the youngest u can be to livin in 3 centuries.
