Throwdown In Asia

China and Japan are constantly struggling over territory, politics and economic dominance – but now it appears the two Asian giants could have found another topic to fight about.¬†Earlier this month a Japanese man was officially declared the world’s oldest living person at 115, but China is fielding an alternative candidate for the title.

Jiroemon Kimura, a former postman who was born on April 19, 1897, was named the world’s oldest person by Guinness World Records after the death of American Dina Manfredini.

However, just a few days ago the Xinhua agency reported on Luo Meizhen, a woman who claims to have turned 127 in September.

Funny, neither one of them look a day over 100.
