Sistine Chapel ChimneyIt was fun watching BBC world last night. They kept a live video shot of the Sistine Chapel chimney pasted at the bottom left corner of their screen till smoke began to come out. First it was white, then it turned black, conveying the message that a new Pope hasn't been chosen yet. Two more ballots today had again given black smoke too. More about this strange but interesting custom here.
