Watch The Vatican Chimney Live [VIDEO]
As the world waits for a new Pope, CBS News has found a new way to allow people to waste time at work, by watching live video of a chimney!
That’s right, CBS has a live webcam showing a closeup of the chimney on top of the Sistine Chapel, where the Conclave for the election of the new Pope is taking place. The Roman Catholic Church’s Cardinals have been meeting since Tuesday in an effort to choose a new pope, and so far, the chimney has belched black smoke, signaling that no decision has been made. When the chimney emits white smoke, a new Pope has been chosen. And face it, for some of us, watching a chimney on our work computer is far more exciting than what we were supposed to be doing anyway!
