"Complete teeth. Complete hair. Fine face. Healthy look. Wow wow wow."
"It’s crazy that someone born in 1908 with parents who grew up in the 19th century is still alive. He easily could have met people born in the first half of the 1800s as a kid. Has he ever spoken to you about his earliest memories? This kind of thing is very cool to me."
"Things we love to see online. Happy birthday to him... Longer life and prosperity."
