world's oldest person is in malaysia, not israel nor america

kickin it old school

This is something interesting I accidentally stumbled upon the other day. Fuck all the claims around the world claiming that they have world's oldest living person. I can tell you this is bullshit. Malaysia oddly enough have the world's oldest living people. Note that I said people not person. Because, it's not only one person. There's like a bunch of them.

How did I know this? My friend, whom I've decided not to name, sent me an email about this nifty online application used by the Malaysian Elections Commission. Basically, what this online application does is, that you enter your National Registration Identification Card (NRIC)number into the application, and it checks whether you are a registered voter and if you are, it basically tells you where you can cast your vote for the upcoming Malaysian 12th General Election. Pretty cool, right?

And because our NRIC number comes in a particular format, anyone with a random number generator can key in a particular sequence of number in to the website application (but adhering to the above format), it will just "spit" some information about that person.

So, someone, with a lot of time on their hands, did exactly that and found that there are a shitload of people with who are over 100 years old.

Some of the sequence of numbers that they tested were:

951114750015 950531710079 940407750023 941121750057 801018775059 800311086231 811028045577 830416610017 841207065917 851222740019 850513106435 851117106729 850802106378 850916086838 860320145365 861101105077 860208145701 860320145357 861217145011 860126145839 871205740015 870914105781 870418105790 871016146308 881231100432 881103750027 880505066047 880906087033 881030136332 891102740096 891129740088 890520610089 890112146416 890920076065 890403615016 910609755079 920622710069 890211050014

And they found a bunch of people who are born around 1180 through 1895, which would make them 113-128 years old.

Neat right?

Here's how to do it:

1. Click on the following link:

2. Follow the picture:

That is so cool.

What makes it even cooler is that we are only discovering this so close to the General Election. I'm thinking, how the hell are these people able to lift their asses of the bed to go and vote this weekend. Even if these people are able to get there, will they be able to hold onto the marker and put a big X next to the ticket.

But truthfully, the whole point of this post is not really to expose to the world that we have a shitload of over a century year old geriatrics still running around, which I highly doubt it. Our people don't eat healthy food and we don't exercise. We die in our 80s.

What it's really about is, there might be a big possibility of a bug in your Elections Commissions computer system and how they are not doing anything about it. If these non-existent geriatrics are indeed a bug in the system, doesn't that compromise the integrity of the system?

If these so called 100-year old phantoms don't really exist in the real world, can someone manipulate that information and thus negating the whole democratic process of a fair election?

Yup, paper. There is actually free transport to the election grounds if you require it.

i think the system has a bug.. a serious glitch.. i really dont think we have people THAT old here in malaysia.. and well, that they even bother to vote..

im still a bit at odds though, not sure what to think.. if there is a glitch in the system, there could possibly be the problem of fake freaky ballots and phantoms voting. or in other words, the system creating phantoms, so that they can manipulate the results..


but if there REALLY were those really old people voting, wouldnt they like come out in the news or something?? like.. i mean.. they could promote them... in other words.. make the rest of us (i mean me) lazy people to actually get out and vote..

if 120++ people can do it.. a 20++ person definitely should!

Honestly, how many people do you know or how many people do people you know, know anyone who's over a 100 (if that made sense)?

I feel kinda weird about this to tell you the truth. On one hand, I'm thinking I'm so glad to live in a country that practices democracy, but on the other hand, I'm also living in a country where democracy can be compromised by a simple glitch in the system.

I voted by the way, even if I didn't truly believe in the validity of my vote. Not for the sake of preserving democracy, but for the fact that I've been eligible to vote for a few times already but I haven't really done so. I did it just to try it out.
