Every so often, you see something in the news that you just can't believe it. Such was a news report that the oldest living man in Tokyo, purported to be 111 years old, actually died 32 years ago. And the oldest living Tokyo woman, age 113, can't be located. Really.
And apparently they hold a national day of celebration for the elderly. But no one has checked them. So I guess Tokyo authorities were quite shocked to find the oldest man. Who died 32 years ago, so I guess the gifts sent to him to celebrate his longevity went to ... whomever allowed his mummified remains to er remain in his bedroom.
