157 year old woman found in Indonesia?

http://www.geek.com/articles/geek-ce...akers-2010067/

There are pictures too which I can't find atm...

Anyway, she claims to be 157, and has a 108 year old daughter who backs up her claim! Best part, she's smoked clove cigarettes all her life... and still does housework.

If she isn't lying, she would've been born in 1853.

Bull or not? Census takers believe her....

They destroyed her records in 1965, which means she would have had been 112 when she was attempting a Communist Coup. What?!?

She could have been indirectly involved or related to a coup participant.

Being the open-minded fool I am, I'm going to say the open-minded fool thing to say.

Of course. It's possible.

Truth: I found it a little odd, if possible, until I read the part about the oldest recorded woman being 122. Then I gave them my full belief.

I can see how the cigarette business might try to bank out on this.

I guess this isn't as ridiculous as the story of the pain who has not eaten in 2-3 years. (will try to find link)

I guess it comes down to whether or not you prepared yourself to live that long.
Heck turtles live well over a hundred years naturally, so it's definitely possible for an organic animal!

This lady isn't human, she's a bowhead whale who came ashore to smoke a few joints.
