Why bother traveling these days? Why bother packing? Why bother going through airport security? Instead, stay at home in front of your computer – where it is warm and cozy – and travel the world through the eyes of web cams.

The advantages of this are numerous. For one thing, it is safe: no plane or car crashes, no pickpockets and no pigeons.

And no traffic jams.  But you can watch traffic jams.  Wouldn’t you rather watch a traffic jam, via a web cam, instead of sitting in one?
