Vatican Smoke Cam

By Deane Barker on April 19, 2005

Found on CNN. I have nothing to add to this picture, I guess, except to note that the Internet has enabled some amazing things in its lifetime.



  1. It is over now. They have elected a new pope. Go to drudge or fark or cnn or foxnews or pretty much any other place or station.

  2. Personally I found the BBC’s name for the same thing much cooler. It was on their home page yesterday and today until the new pope was elected: the “Vaticam”.

  3. I thought that the whole process was very interesting. I wonder how many people for how long stared at their monitors or TV til the white smoke appeared?

  4. I found the link directly above it much more entertaining.. 140 reindeer chased off cliff , hahahaha

  5. That reindeer article was interesting. They just found a big bloody mass of reindeer at the bottom of a 2,300 (!) foot cliff. Lynx footprints in the pasture at the top of the cliff make them think the reindeer were spooked into acting like lemmings.

    (Ah, Lemmings — great, great video game. Is there a Flash version, does anyone know?)
