Mbah Gohto from Indonesia has been declared the “World’s Oldest Man,” with birth documents setting his date of birth in the year 1870, making him an amazing 145 YEARS OLD!!

If the documents are verified, Gotho would easily become the world’s oldest person ever, surpassing French centenarian Jeanne Calment, who died at the age of 122.  Gotho has outlived all 10 of his siblings, his four wives and his children, and unfortunately time has not been kind to him.  For the past few months, he has needed to be bathed, spoon fed, and has become increasing frail.  Gotho told a local news agency that all he wants from life now is “to die.”

He spends his days now listening to the radio, as his eyesight is too poor to watch television, and when asked about the secret to living such a long life, he said, “The recipe is just patience.”
