    from the moment of conception then their birthday one day after they died would add nearly 2 years

      While some might find this plausible, I meant more from birth to death. Gotta give ya an up vote just for seeing it from a different perspective.

      I think I figured it out. He picked up 4 weeks per year. Which is 1 year and 27 days. Plus his Birthday was before Jan26, 1913.

    Life support for two years? Only thing I can think of. Unless your'e talking about being born again through Jesus Christ.

      No. No medical assistance, and no religious overtones or preaching. Interesting angles though.

    Did he have a medical issue? My grandfather has lived 89 years, but according to the government he is 92. He was in WW2 and bomb fragments are embedded into his skull, brain, and right arm. According to his doctors, this aged him a couple of years.

      I'm sorry, but I can't help but chuckle a little bit at that. God bless your grandfather!
      However, no, there is no medical issue, outside of being dead. He was born. He lived a good life. Then, he died. His age was 98, but he lived 100 years.

      Then I have no idea. The only other instance I've heard of is someone born on a leap year. But there would be a bigger age difference.

      Jan. 1912 or 1912

    Here's a suggestion. Write it down. Months. Days. Years. It's all right there. No tricks.

      No. That would only be 24-25 days.

      Here is the answer:
      He was born in September 14, 1913, and he died May 23, 2012. His age was 98 years, 8 months and 9 days old. However, he lived within 100 calendar years (1913-2012).
