They'll leave the light on for ya

The longest continuously burning light bulb in the world glows high in the ceiling at Fire Station No. 6 in Livermore, Calif. The four-watt bulb has been burning since 1901 and is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest burning bulb in the world. It still provides a night light for firefighters in the station house. The second longest burning bulb is in a Fort Worth, Texas museum. (Los Angeles Times photo by Robert Durell / March 28, 2008)
