Misao Okawa is a young, 117 years old. She’s also world’s oldest person.

Okawa celebrated her birthday a day early with family, and when asked about her long life she had a very simple, yet poignant response.

“It seemed rather short,” she said.

Okawa has said in the past that the secret to her long life has been eating sushi and regularly getting 8 hours of sleep, according to Guinness World Records.

Okawa was born on March 5, 1898, and she officially claimed the Guinness record title in June 2013 after Japan’s Jiroemon Kimura died at 116.

Germany's Sinners Domino Entertainment currently holds eight official Guinness World Records titles, including the record for most dominoes toppled in a "circle bomb."

The feat was achieved back in August of this year, but Guinness World Records recently featured the stunt in its "Spotlight" YouTube series.

It took a team of 16 people days to set them all up just to watch them all go back down in a matter of seconds.

Definitely worth it.
