One of the joys of the internet is webcams. I’ve spent way longer than I would like to admit watching live streams of zoo animals, random people’s sheds, and fuzzy orbs flying around in space. They can be used for all sorts of useful things, and complete and utter nonsense – and falling into the nonsense category is Donald Trump’s son-in-law’s idea to live stream the Mexican border wall.
Yup, Jared Kushner reckons the whole world will want to check in on the “big, beautiful wall”.
A senior White House official has confirmed it’s a go, saying “there will be a wall cam, and it’ll launch early next year.”
So, in honour of the USA using taxpayers money to live stream a literal wall, here are some other cams you can waste your work day watching.
Abbey Road Cam
This is probably my favourite. There’s a live cam set up that streams the Abbey Road crossing so you can watch people cross the road like The Beatles did, hold up traffic while trying to take photos, and just generally make life hell for the locals. Watch here.
The Willard Library in Evansville, Indiana, is haunted af. Live cams have been set up throughout the library to capture footage of ghosts. Get your ghost hunting hat on, and watch here.
Vegas Wedding Cam
A live cam in a chapel in Vegas lets you watch people swig their beer while being married by an Elvis impersonator. Seriously, everyone I’ve watched go in so far has had a bottle in their hands. Watch here.
The Kitten Rescue Sanctuary in Los Angeles, California streams their furry babies 24/7, and if you tune in when their time zone is late evening, you can spot some of their special needs kittens. Watch here.
Grass Growing Cam.
Watch grass grow. That’s it. That’s the live stream. Watch here.
