Traveller in Time with some of the shortest living lightbulbs
"Completely amazing I still have some flash bulbs with Magnesium wire, good for one millisecond.
Currently my record holder is a LED, ignited for the first time in 2000, still half as bright as it once was.
And the speed of the lightbulb is incredible too

Yeah, 33 days is pretty quick. Then again, such a trivial piece will be forgotten more quickly still.
In future, I promise to write pieces that will make editors think a little longer and readers remember a lot longer.

The longest lasting lightbulb I had only lasted for roughly 2 years, also adding the halegen Light which is suppose to last upto 5 years fused out in 1 year. Oh well.....
