The light bulb that is still burning ... 109 years later!!!

The world's oldest light bulb has been burning for 109 years - so little wonder it has a fan club with thousands of members and its own website.

As EU rules deny householders the right to use traditional filament bulbs, the so-called 'Centennial Light' has been on almost constantly since 1901.

It holds pride of place in Fire Station 6, in Livermore, northern California.

The longest time the Guinness World Record-holding bulb has ever been turned off for is just a week. More + photos...

Don't miss:

  1. How they advertise light bulbs in Thailand!!!
  2. German hoards 3000 bulbs ... to beat EU ban!!!
  3. Big Brother EU bans traditional light bulbs. WTF!
