“Waterloo Sunset” is a song by British rock band the Kinks. Composed and produced by Kinks frontman Ray Davies, it was released as a single in 1967 and reached #2 on the Britsh charts. The song was originally entitled “Liverpool Sunset”. One of my favourites.

World’s oldest lightbulb …

World’s oldest lightbulb

The Centennial Light is the world’s longest-lasting light bulb, burning since 1901. It is at 4550 East Avenue, Livermore, California, and maintained by the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department. Due to its longevity, the bulb has been noted by The Guinness Book of World Records, Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, and General Electric. It is often cited as evidence for the existence of planned obsolescence in later-produced light bulbs. The Centennial Light was originally a 30-watt or 60-watt bulb but now is very dim, emitting about the same light as a 4-watt nightlight.

By 1951 this bulb had already been shining practically non-stop for 50 years. It has now been going strong for 116 years. God, I feel so young. The bulb has its very own website which actually features a real-time webcam. Here is the link …
