This Light Bulb Is Older Than Henry Kissinger
A light bulb at California’s Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department has been flickering since 1901. The Centennial Light was manually made by Adolphe Chaillet, the founder of Shelby Electric Company in the 1890s. It has been noted by the Guinness Book of World Records, Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, and General Electric. “We don’t even dust it off,” retired Deputy Fire Chief Tom Bramell told Inside Edition in 2018. Inside Edition Digital’s Stephanie Officer explains how the bulb just keeps on burning.
