From what I understand this woman lived for 122 years, No one said it was under a rock.Technological changes? Really? The answer is as a human we adapt to change quiet rapidly.She didn't just pop instantly from 1897 to 1997.I am sure that 122 years took a long time to live.So adapting to technology would have been gradual.If I were instantly be place from this time 2013 to 2113 I would marvel at sites and wonders that people of that era would take for granted.She probably adapted to change quiet well.

Really is amazing, especially considering the time period...but I agree I would not want to live so long. I'm hoping for a healthy 70 years tops.

Wow! How would she have gotten used to all the technological changes?

She found the fountain of youth and with age she forgot where it was.

I love this! 3 She was really beautiful in a weird way, and I hope she's living happily in the next life.

This the oldest recorded with evidences... There's some who are beleived to have lived up to 140 years old and maybe older, but are not recorded because of lack of proof...in china and some in remotes mountains villages around the world, but because of theyre very few contact with modern civilisation they cannot be proven... I heard of a person so old that nobody in his village could remember when he was born, he himself could not remember....lol...no one was older than him....and some medical test proved that he was more than 100 years old and possibly alot more...
