Drudge ought to know better. Occasional claims of 150+ are made by
people in remote places, and without exception, further investigation
always reveals that the secret of their logevity is bad recordkeeping.
The oldest persons with legitimate claims are around 120. I would
not be terribly surprized if someone was found somewhere to be 130.
Beyond that, such claims should be assumed fraudulent without proof.
