How many people does it take to change this light bulb? None. On June 18, the oldest-known working light bulb in the world will celebrate the 110th year it has burned bright. The bulb, which hangs idly about in a fire station in Livermore, California, holds the Guinness World Record. It's not clear how this particular bulb has been glowing since it was installed in 1901. Scientists from all over the country have examined the light bulb. The bulb was actually designed by Adolphe Chailet, who - get this - originally competed with Thomas Edison to make the best light bulb in town.

He tried fancy creams, but nothing worked. So the other day he drank some beer, pulled out his shotgun and stretched out his left hand. He then pointed the gun right at the wart and pulled the trigger. Because he was only using one hand to shoot, he couldn't hold the gun steady and he blew off most of his finger.
