It is pointless asking any of you about your oldest light bulb that still works. With a couple of exceptions, you all keep moving and don't stay long enough anywhere to have a long time light bulb. Maybe Jah Teh has a really old bulb?
The light bulb in the toilet of my grandparents house lasted twenty two years, until the house was sold, and for all I know it could still be working.
But that is a pretty poor competitor in the long life light bulb stakes. The prize goes to the light bulb in Livermore's Fire Station in the US. The light has been burning pretty well constantly for 110 years.
You can watch it burn via a webcam. I have included a still for you, but it is much better to go to the webcam site to capture the true magic. Books have been written about it. It has its own Facebook site. Mythbusters has looked at it and it is in the Guiness Book of Records. Snopes is happy with the record.
There is countdown clock and as I type there are 2 days, 16 hours, 5 minutes and 28 seconds to go until the bulb reaches it 110th anniversary.
I so wish I could attend the celebrations. There is cake, icecream, balloons and music! Souveniers will be for sale and the book authors will do signings.
It will be a party like none you have ever seen.
