Oldest working lightbulb

this lightbulb has been on the job for over 110 years. it's at a fire station in California. someone donated it to the station in 1901 and it was left on to serve as a nightlight over the fire trucks.

there's an entire website dedicated to the light bulb, including a "bulb cam" where you can see the bulb in action!
