Emma Morana from Italy has lived to tell many a tale, one would imagine.

Some of the milestones that occurred during her decade-spent life include both World Wars, the invention of the television, pop-up toasters, jet engines to the more recent smart phones and the giant-sized record-breaking supermoon.
She turned 117 on November 29. Her secret to her longevity - eggs and cookies. According to a report by Mashable, “I eat two eggs a day and that’s it. And cookies. But I do not eat much because I have no teeth."
Happy belated birthday, Emma!
