My username (as of October 2022), Record_116 come from Misao Okawa. I joined "The 110 Club" forum on the day the then WOLP Misao Okawa’s 116th birthday (5 March 2014), so my username’s number is "116". I remember well that day which I was very grateful for the third validated Japanese person reaching the age of 116. She was the last WOP titleholder when my mother still alive and the last Japanese person who is more than century older than me.
