Well, I checked. Not a single one of the 5 have died.

Jeralean Talley...
Turned 115 two days ago.

As of July, Susannah Mushatt Jones was also still alive.
Gertrude Weaver, alive.
Emma Morano, no death has been reported.

(THE oldest)
Misao Okawa - also alive.
this picture of her is over 110 years old. (she's the little one on the right)

I keep reading the title as:
people still alive that thought you were dead
I keep thinking, geez, that's kind of an aggressive question. Like Max Payne or Jack Bauer would answer, "No one. I killed them all."

Well do you ever get the feeling that the story's too damn real and in the present tense?
Or that everybody's on the stage and it seems like you're the only person sitting in the audience?

I saw Freeman Dyson's name in a news story yesterday. Didn't know he was still alive and kicking and apparently doing enough science to merit inclusion in a news story.
