KUSA - For the past few weeks, the internet has spent a lot of time looking at a pregnant giraffe named April.
We’re not calling this a good thing or a bad thing. This is just an observation about the human condition by someone who writes for a TV news website.
But, since the internet loves April and her “imminent” journey to motherhood so much, we thought we’d show you some other live streams, since that seems to be something people enjoy … and we care (also a quick public service announcement: Don’t Google “live webcams” on your work computer without being a little bit more specific).
NASA’s view of Earth from space
There’s nothing that makes you feel small and insignificant quite like seeing the Earth from the International Space Station.
Sure, this stream might present more of an existential crisis than April, but that’s something we all need at times:
Can’t see the stark reality of how insignificant you are in the universe? Click here: http://bit.ly/2mWqci4
Wow, that just got real.
Let’s take a step back from the philosophical ramifications of space and look at something a little bit more … adorable.
That’s right folks: A kitten live stream. This one is at an adoption facility in Illinois.
At some point in your life, you’ve probably been a tourist. That’s fine: but that doesn’t mean you can’t laugh at them anyway.
There’s no better place to do it than the Abbey Road live cam, where you can watch people spend their days trying to mimic the iconic crossing made by the Beatles.
(unfortunately, we can’t embed this one, so you’ll have to watch people do what you’d probably do in the same situation here: http://bit.ly/2n6CMMb)
Fort Lauderdale Beach
If you’re reading this, you probably aren’t sitting on a beach. That’s unfortunate.
So, why not pretend like you’re at the beach? That’s what the Fort Lauderdale Beach Place live camera is for! This gives you a scenic look at the ocean – and if you really squint, some people wearing bathing suits.
