Okay you ask, who the hell is that, and why does he deserve an Outhouse thread?

Well, he was born in 1897, a few years before GOSD and a few years after Mick Jagger, (who doesn't count as he's the immortal spawn of a demon), and in the same year as Roger Daltrey, who also doesn't count because he's also immortal, (until someone chops off his head). All of which conspired to make this Japanese man the world's oldest man---EVER!

116 years old, that isn't bad. You'll note however that the new world's oldest man is only at number 32 or so on the list, which means there are a bunch of women lording it over him.

Just imagine, this guy went from having ex-samurai glowering at him and wishing they still had a katana at hand to chop off Daltrey's immortal head, to WWII, to watching Armstrong land on the moon, to Jersey Shore! Imagine all the progress he must have seen! And all the willpower it must have taken not to kill himself...

Anyhow, RIP Mr. Kimura. And no MMA jokes please, at least not without posting that video of him beating the hell out of Helio Gracie.

GOSD was born in the BC era. He and I knew Moses since kindergarten.

Wow, that is old. I bet he had some interesting attitudes, Archie Bunker type.

Damn, I just realized this guy was born in a time when having someone call you a "Rough Rider" didn't mean he was saying you did gay porn!
