    Was passing by Livermore CA today so I went to see the Centennial Light. It's the oldest working lightbulb (106 y.) in the world. It's hanging in the local fire station. Too bad they were closed, so I had to take this one through the small windows in one of the doors.
    Sorry it's a so grainy (ISO 1600), but I wanted to share it, because I love the fact that it's very very old and that a webcam is installed next to it. :lol:
    Thanx for looking.

    if 106 years ago, they could make lightbulbs that last over 100 years!!

    why is it they only last 100 days now?
