There are many things on the Internet that can't be reasonably explained.

For example, who thought sending pictures of yourself would become a thing? Now everyone's doing selfies. Many years from now, people will be talking about #DrummondPuddleWatch the way Irish people talk about Italia '90 or the Moon Landing.

Well, not really.

#DrummondPuddleWatch is a Periscope stream that - as of writing, anyway - is focused on one thing. People trying to cross a puddle in Drummond, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Sure, you might think that that's daft and you're not wrong, but it comes slowly mesmerising. It's essentially people-watching, but with a slice of Ninja Warrior thrown in to make it more interesting.

Some of the highlights have been people watching the stream deciding that bikes are cheating (obviously) and requesting more water be thrown in to make it more difficult.

Naturally, Twitter's taken #DrummondPuddleWatch to its heart.



Here's the Periscope link if you want to follow it. Trust us, it's been gripping.
