The world's oldest man is 111. He was born in Poland & lives in New York.

Must be something about Polish longevity. My eldest relative is 95 & more active than many younger people.

Alexander Imich, an 111-year-old Polish immigrant and Soviet gulag survivor who lives in Manhattan, became the world's oldest living man last month when the previous record-holder, Arturo Licata, died just days before his 112th birthday.

Sorry to rain on your parade Beckski but I just saw a piece in the paper last week with an interview with a lady from Detroit who is 115, and they only claimed that she is the second oldest in the world, as there is someone in Japan who is 116. I guess you did say "man", but I can not remember if the person in Japan was a man or woman. But still hats off to anyone who can live to a ripe old age of 100. My wife had a great grandmother that made it to 102.

My grandfather died on his hundredth birthday. The saddest thing was that we were only half way through giving him the bumps.

How sad, the Polish man who was supposedly the world's oldest man, has passed away.

He didn't hold his title for a long period of time.
