|World’s Oldest Man May Be Lying - September 24th 2003|
It was concluded today by experts around the world that a man claiming to be the ‘World’s Oldest Man’ may be exaggerating just how old he actually is. Chuck Hankman, who lives in the suburb of a small market town, claims to be 152 this November making him by far and away the oldest man on the planet.
However, after a careful analysis into Mr Hankman’s life story, inconsistencies began to emerge.
The first clue that Mr Hankman came during his phone call to the Guiness Book of Records to claim his achievement. Mr Hankman claimed to have lived in the market towm of King’s Lynn all his life, having never been abroad. However, he featured a very strong Californian accent prompting the staff to call him back. However, when they returned the call to the number that Mr Hankman had contacted them from it transpired he had called them from America.
The second clue came when Mr Hankman emailed them a photograph of himself. Instead of appearing to look like a frail old man, Mr Hankman had the appearance of a man in his early twenties. When the Records book queries his age based on this reason Mr Hankman explained that he ironed his face to keep the wrinkles out.
Mr Hankman went on to detail his life explaining that he could remember “all of the major world wars” but not all them them as “war was common back in those days, we were always fighting a world war with someone.”
He also claimed that he was forced to work down a mineshaft when he was 12 years old in order to afford the latest laptop for his schooling. He explained that back then Bill Gates was only a millionaire so could not afford to spend as much time developing different colour schemes so it only came in black and white.
Researchers were only able to prove Mr Hankman was lying when he recalled how it rained on his 18th birthday party. However, after analysing the records of the time experts discovered it had not rained for nearly a week on the day of Mr Hankman’s 18th birthday meaning he must be fabricating his story.
