Indian Man Claims He’s 179 Years Old

Vârânasî| A retired cobbler from northern India, Mahashta Mûrasi, claims he was born in January 1835, making him not only the oldest man on earth, but the oldest to have ever lived, according to the Guiness World Records.

According to indian officials, the man was born at home in the city of Bangalore on January 6th 1835, and is recorded to have lived in Vârânasî since 1903. He worked as a cobbler in the city until 1957, when he retired at the already venerable age of 122.

“I have been alive so long, that my great grand-children have been dead for years” explains Mr Mûrasi. “Somehow death forgot about me… And now there’s hardly any hope left. Look at the statistics, nobody dies past 150, even less at 170. At that point, I guess I’m immortal or something. I might as well enjoy it!”

The man’s birth certificate and identity cards all seem to confirm his version, but unfortunately no medical examination can confirm his saying for now.  The last doctor Mister Mûrasi visited died in 1971, so there is little information available about his previous medical files.

    How to know if he’s telling the truth? Just ask someone older than him! As simple as that!

  2. I can’t understand the science… How come a scientist is able to identify the ages of a fossil that’s been buried for millions years and can’t identify the age of a live person.

      Because a fossil doesn’t replace it’s carbon molecules anymore, so they just lie there aging, and then someone just measures the level of decay. A living being, on the other hand, replaces all of it’s molecules on a daily basis, so that measuring decay becames impossible…

  3. Living for so many years may be a blessing but its also a curse.Think about his family as they mentioned in the text they are dead for years now.He suffered their deaths also his wifes and other relatives he had.

  4. How long has he been unable to fuck? That is the punishment that one would suffer by living beyond say 85-90 years old!

  5. 120 YEARS AGE MENTIONS THAT THE BIBLE, BUT WITHOUT THE DEBATE Is FOOT AND HEAD OR, existed ONE GOD THE GOD OF ISRAEL, GOD, MIGHTY GOD, PRINCE OF PEACE, WONDERFUL COSELHEIRO …
