If you are feeling old...

Spruce Gran Picea #0909-6B37 (9,550 years old; Fulufjället, Sweden)
Rachel Sussman has been compiling a portfolio of the world's oldest living things.

In my own travels, I have seen a few things (mostly trees) dated at roughly 2,000 years old.

But this spruce in Sweden is over 9,500 years old.
