Even more interesting is the fact that the (claimed) 157-year-old still works around the house and has smoked clove cigarettes all her life. I'm not sure what a clove cigarette is but it doesn't sound healthy. She reportedly has an incredible memory, clear sight and no hearing problems.
OK, so the mother obviously is old but do the math: did she really give birth at the age of 49? (157 minus 108 equals 49.) Given the other claimed facts about this woman who seemed to age much more slowly than the rest of us, most anything is possible.
So, if your daughter is (provably) 108 years old, how old DOES that make you?
