Forget 1000 year old eggs. Forget 100 year old Port.  Other than some microbe living in suspended animation, this animal witnessed more than any other living animal.
 
Oh.and nice job, scientists...mess around trying to tell how old the subject is/was and you killed it!  Hope the Chowder was good.

Forget 100 year old Port. 

I dunno.  I've has some very good 20, 30, and one 50 year old Tawny Port.  Pretty unforgetable.
 
Ming had it coming.  Just ask Flash.

In the UK, it is customary when one turns 40 to bring a bottle of 40 year old port.  I happened to be lucky enough to turn 40 when we were living there and my best friend brought one over.......whether his  claim that it was also necessary to finish it all that night between the 2 of us is true, I don't know...and remembered less after the first few glasses.  But it was GREAT!
 
A few years later, when my younger brother in the US turned, 40, I decided to start the trend here.  I had to special order it...so to be on the safe side, I also bought 2 20-year olds.
