Mbah Gotho, who has outlived his ten siblings, four wives, the last of whom died in 1988, and his children, says now he just wants to die.

“What I want is to die. My grandchildren are all independent,” he told a local news network this week, admitting he began preparing for his death in 1992 when he was 122, even getting a gravestone ready, but 24 years later, he still hasn’t used it.

Indonesian Gotho has official documentation stating his date of birth as being December 31, 1870. This makes him 23 years older than the official oldest recorded person, Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997, reports RT. When asked what the secret to such a long life is, Gotho simply said that “the recipe is just patience.”
