World's Oldest Man Dies Just Shy of 114

DEWITT, N.Y. - Fred Hale Sr., documented as the world's oldest man, died Friday. He was 113 years old. Hale died in his sleep Friday at The Nottingham in suburban Syracuse, while trying to recover from a bout of pneumonia, said his grandson, Fred Hale III. He was 12 days shy of his 114th birthday.

   

Born Dec. 1, 1890, Hale last month watched his lifelong favorite baseball team, the Boston Red Sox, win the World Series (news - web sites) again after 86 years.


Hale retired 50 years ago as a railroad postal worker and beekeeper, his grandson said. He enjoyed gardening, canning fruits and vegetables and making homemade applesauce.


"He had a routine and he rarely broke it because anyone else was around," Hale III told The Post-Standard of Syracuse. "He didn't need a lot to be happy."


At age 95, Hale flew to Japan to visit a grandson who was in the Navy. While en route back to the United States, he stopped in Hawaii and even gave boogie-boarding a try.


At 103, Hale was still living on his own and shoveling the snow off his rooftop.


He was born in New Sharon, Maine, when there were only 43 stars on the American flag. He married Flora Mooers in 1910.


Hale lived in his native Maine until he was 109, when he moved to the Syracuse area to be near his son, Fred Jr., now 82.


On March 5, 2004, the Guinness World Records acknowledged him as the oldest living man when Joan Riudavets Moll, of Spain, passed away at age 114.


Hale also was a Guinness record-holder for the oldest driver. At age 108, he still found slow drivers annoying, Fred Hale III said.


Hale outlived his wife, who died in 1979, and three of his five children. He had nine grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren.


The world's oldest living man is now Hermann Dornemann, of Germany, age 111. There are 26 living woman older than him, according to Gerontology Research Group.

I hope I live to be older than that.

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

Rond het jaar 270 werd Nicolaas geboren als zoon van een rijke koopman in Patara in de provincie LyciŽ in klein AziŽ (het huidige Turkije). Nicolaas werd tot priester gewijd en met het geld van zijn ouders hielp hij velen die in nood verkeerden. Later werd Nicolaas bisschop van Myra. Uit die tijd dateren vele verhalen en legenden rond Nicolaas. Op 6 december 340 is Nicolaas overleden en jaren later werd hij heilig verklaard. Daardoor mocht hij de naam "sint" voor zijn naam plaatsen en vereerd worden.

So he ISNT 5000 years old
