The Oldest Working Incandescent Light Bulb

While browsing, the Urban Legends Reference Pages, I came across this. An excerpt is below:

Today you'll find a remarkable light bulb burning bright at a fire station in Livermore, California. It hasn't been turned off since 1901.

The Guinness Book of World Records, Ripley's Believe It Or Not and General Electric agree the bulb, of unknown wattage, is the longest-living in history, despite two moves and a few power outages during its lifetime.
