World's Oldest Man Dies

Wow. That is pretty much all that I have to say about the world's oldest man dying, but he did die at the age of 113, which is entirely impressive. He was a World War I veteran, so obviously, he had seen it all in his lifetime. I can't imagine living that long, though it is a wonderful aspiration, but it boggles my mind to think of how the world has changed in his lifetime.

Was he able to get used to the age of cell phones, iPods, and even the iPhone? It would be overwhelming and amazing to see the ups and downs of the world over 113 years, and I'm sure that he was happy to see the 21st century before he died. He did spend a lot of his life speaking about his time in World War I, which is fantastic because it makes him a living history book that gives a unique insight that can't be found anywhere else from a real live person who experienced World War I. Honestly, he didn't look too bad in his pictures, which is totally impressive for making it into the Guinness Book of World Records after turning 113. Good for him!
