100-year old light bulb still burning bright

A 230-watt light bulb manufactured in Osram GEC Lampworks factory in Wembley, north-west London, in July, 1912, still lights the porch of Roger Dyball of Lowestoft, West Suffolk, England.  Dyball bought the house 45 years ago with the light bulb in place.  He’s now 74, which is 25 years younger than his porch light bulb.  Read the whole story.

Only an act of the U.S. Congress could put this light bulb out.
