I feel kind of bad about giggling over this but it's true!


People on my mom's side of the family tend to live close to 100, but 114 is impressive.

Edna Parker, right, plays with her great, great grandson, Kole Scott Parker, middle, while he is held by his father, Jerad Parker, during a celebration in Shelbyville, Ind., Thursday, Aug. 16, 2007. Parker, who is 114-years-old, became the world's oldest person Monday when a Japanese woman four months older than she died.


Japan - 0

USA - 1

But she has to live at least four more months since Yone Minagawa was born in January while Edna Parker was born in April.

Hence, so far,
Japan 1
USA 0

If we are going by longest lived then it goes to the French.
