The man officially recognized as the oldest man in the world, Walter Breuning, died yesterday in Montana of natural causes. He was 114 years old. Breuning lived by a simple set rules, according to the AP, which included eating two meals a day, because "That's all you need." He also had thoughts on death: "We're going to die. Some people are scared of dying. Never be afraid to die. Because you're born to die." Breuning was born in Minnesota in 1896 and worked most of his life on the railroad in Montana.
