The World's New Oldest Human

Violet brownAccording to Violet-Mosse Brown, you become the world’s oldest human by not drinking rum. After all, Brown would know because she has recently been dubbed the world’s oldest human, being born March 10, 1900. A Jamaican woman, Brown has witnessed a lot of historic milestones for her country, including the first planes and cars to touch down on the island. Brown got the title of the world’s oldest human after Emma Morano died this past Saturday.
