Cigar-smoking Richard Overton proves 'em wrong in so many ways.

Meet Richard Overton. You might not believe it, but this World War II veteran is 109 years old. You might not believe it because he’s still walking, still driving, still smoking cigars. And he’s got a 91-year-old lady friend.

Well, watch this, from the National Geographic YouTube channel, and find out.
