1591Oldest tickUnknownUnited States, New Jersey01 January 1999In April 1999, a team of American scientists unearthed a 90-million-year-old tick which had been preserved in amber. This blood-sucking parasite from the Cretaceous period was found in a vacant lot in New Jersey. Named Carlos jerseyi, the tiny insect has unusual hairs on its back, which may have been used to detect vibrations. It is a logical conclusion that many dinosaurs carried parasitic ticks, just like today's animals.Around 35 kg (80 lb) of amber have been extracted from the site in New Jersey, which was discovered in the mid 1990s by a fossil hunter. The harvest of amber has also yielded other important discoveries such as the oldest mushroom and the oldest ants.

1603Longest videogame soundtrack compositionechochrome ii (Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. 2010)1/15/7 hour(s), minute(s), second(s)Japan, TOKYO21 December 2010The longest piece of original music scored for a videogame is 'prime # 4507', composed by Hideki Sakamoto (Japan) and lasting 1 hour 15 min 7 sec. It was created for echochrome ii (Sony Computer Entertainment, 2010) and released on 21 December 2010.In contrast with traditional videogame soundtracks which use a level-by-level approach or mix multiple pre-recorded tracks into each other, prime #4507 is one continuous arrangement that plays throughout the game regardless of the player's progress. According to the claimants: "Normally, in the genre of video game music, music is prepared for each scene, stage or level. What we wanted to create was a piece of background music for a particular situation, i.e., while “playing with puzzles,” which would play continuously, just like how background music at formal events and parties is provided continuously."The mind-bending levels in echochrome (Game Yarouze, 2008) and its 2010 sequel were inspired by the “impossible” architectural designs of Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd, known as “the father of impossible figures”. He is credited for creating the Penrose Triangle, an image of a “3D” triangle that can be drawn, but not built, and was a major inspiration for Dutch abstract artist M C Escher.
