My buddy said this came from "Outwit the West" and is stuck on this question:
"It was the only light of it's kind for over 2,000 miles and when it died, it was laid to rest in its very own coffin. There are many lights like it today. Send us a picture of one."
update It has been brought to my attention that the quiz from whence this came prohibits fishing for answers on the public internet. I passed on what my wifey and I could come up with, but if you know the answer, wait until the contest is over to post it here. I don't know when it ends, so basically, ignore this post.
