It wasn't all bad

On his 105th birthday, this man became the world's oldest person to ride a roller coaster

Jack Reynolds refuses to act his age. The great-­grandfather from northern England celebrated his 105th birthday last week by becoming the world's oldest person to ride a roller coaster. Wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with the phrase "It's my party and I'll scream if I want to," Reynolds took a spin on the Twistosaurus coaster at the Flamingo Land theme park. "It were OK," the former railway worker said as he disembarked. "I'm going for another ride in a minute!" It was his second world record: Last year, at 104, he became the oldest person to get a tattoo.
