I believe after Betty Grable, Esther William's was the favorite pin-up girl of WWII. I wonder what she thought of the synchronized swimming today? You can blame that 'sport' on her and the movies! :wink: :(

She helped sync swimmin' to get started. For anyone who has ever tried to do a two minute upside down handstand in water knows the difficulty.

Where ya gonna go with 'em Plook? :mrgreen:

Rita would be my bet too, but that's not what the lead-in said. I didn't get to see the rest, but that's what they hinted at.

Edit: They said it was Esther Williams

No kidding...I remember when he was still on the loose, scary stuff. Boo hoo hoo.

Too bad about lovely and classy ladies, Jean Stapleton and Esther Williams, some people you wanted to stay around forever.

World's oldest person dies in Japan at 116

Image

The Associated Press


TOKYO —

Japan's Jiroemon Kimura, who had been recognized by the Guinness World Records as the world's oldest living person and the oldest man ever, died Wednesday of natural causes. He was 116.

Kimura, of Kyotango, Japan, was born April 19, 1897. Officials in Kyotango said he died in a local hospital, where he had been undergoing treatment for pneumonia.

According to Guinness, Kimura was the first man in history to have lived to 116 years old.

Kimura became the oldest man ever on Dec. 28, 2012, at the age of 115 years, 253 days, breaking the record set by Christian Mortensen, a Danish immigrant to the United States, whose life spanned from 1882-1998.

The title of oldest living person is now held by another Japanese, 115-year-old Misao Okawa, of Osaka

It's like tomorrow never comes. As soon as he died someone else became "the oldest living man in the world". :smoke:

Consider this: he didn't serve in World War 2 because he was too old, and he was 6 when the Wright brothers invented the airplane...
