Did you know: The Eiffel Tower in Paris is lit at night by 20,000 special light bulbs all donated by Phillips.  Collectively, they weigh 8 tons.  The lighting installation required 25 mountain climbers who worked for 5 months to set up the system.  When originally built (for the 1900 Worlds Fair) the tower was lit by some 10,000 gas street lamps.
