Last person alive in the 1800's passes away

April 17, 2017

Emma Morano was born on November 29th, 1899. She sadly just passed away at the age of 117 years old. This means there is currently no one left who was alive during the 1800's! Which is kind of mind boggling. 

She believed she lived so long because she left her abusive husband, as well as had a diet of raw eggs and cookies (sounds like the worst drunk food ever). I'm on board for half of that diet, but personally I prefer my eggs scrambled and ya know, cooked. But I guess I won't be living to 117. 

(Side note - if you're 117, could you be considered a teenager again? Food for thought.)
