Misao Okawa Celebrates 116 Birthday

Japanese Misao Okawa is the world's oldest living person according to the Guinness World Records. She turned 116 yesterday and is fit enough to eat her birthday cake herself.

Misao Okawa was born on March 5th, 1898 in Tenma, Osaka. Her simple secret to live long is eating and sleeping. She eats lots of Sushi and her favorite meal is mackerel on vinegar-steamed rice according to The Telegraph . Apparently good genes help too as two of her kids are aged at 94 and 92.

Jeralean Talley is the oldest American aged at 114. There is no male under the ten oldest living people. According to Wikipedia the oldest living male is Arturo Licata, age 111 in Italy.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
