Charles Faraone, History is written by the victors

Jeanne Calment. She lived to 122, from 1875 to 1997.

She said that she met Vincent Van Gogh as a child, and that he was dirty, poorly dressed, and disagreeable.

She smoked until she was 117.

One of the funnier things about her life is that when she was 90, a 47 year old lawyer got her to sign a contract so that if she died, he'd get her apartment. In return, he'd give her a monthly stipend.

He assumed she'd be dead within a couple years at most, so he was hoping to get her apartment on the cheap.

But she just kept living. Eventually he died at 77, never having received the apartment. His widow kept paying Calment after his death per the contract.

By the time she died, she'd been paid $180,000... over twice the apartment's worth.

But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart,
having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. -- Luke 8:15
