    Default Beating Shaun to it...

    BBC News - Oldest person Eugenie Blanchard dies at age of 114
    French nun Eugenie Blanchard, certified as the world's oldest person, has died at the age of 114 on the French Caribbean island of Saint-Barthelemy.

    On Saint-Barthelemy, she was known for giving out sweets to children.

    she acquired the nickname La Douchy - a Dutch Creole word for sweets - from the tactic she used to draw children into Bible readings.

    "She would offer the children sweets, saying 'douchy, douchy', and the name stuck," nephew Daniel Blanchard said.
    It was a more innocent time, when clergy could offer sweets to children without being accused of slipping them a Finger of Fudge.

    I wonder how common 114 will be when we are in our 80s and 90s.

    Happy as I am to agree with the sentiment AtW expressed, I have to agree with you that he's not actually making sense.
