Ukrainian Magazine Smiles For Longevity

Kiev-based weekly news magazine Krayinaasks its readers, "Are you ready to live until you're 120?"

In this week's edition, the Ukrainian-language publication writes that longevity means additional opportunities — but also new problems: What to make of a couple extra decades? How to live in a family where four or five generations coexist? At what age should we retire? How will the pension system work?

Universal questions indeed. In the meantime, here's a Guiness Book glimpse at the world's oldest living person.
