Century is a common methuselah and hexomino that evolves into three blocks and a blinker. It is a parent of bookend. David Buckingham built a period 246 glider gun using a century as the engine in June 1996. It temporarily produces a toad at generation 59 which is destroyed at generation 79.

Century eater

Century can be eaten by a configuration of three eater 1s surrounding a beehive, as shown below. This eater plays a prominent role in the bistable switch.

A much smaller century eater compatible with the bistable switch was found by Ivan Fomichev in 2013.
