For something I'm writing, I'd like to be sure that I have the latest on
the age of the oldest person (according to validated records). I don't have
a current Guiness Book of Records and, to my surprise, I couldn't find it
with a quick AltaVista search.

As far as I know, the current record is 121 years and some months. Can
anyone tell me if this has been beaten?
