Phonebox cam 24/7 webcam pointed at a phonebox somewhere in UK, dial 01926 424110 or 0044 1926 424110 to see for yourself who answers the phone (I guess a videophone) (it's night in UK right now so you won't see much)

WOOOHOOO! After I make my prank call, I might just go out and tip a cow! Watch out for me, I'm a wild man! I'm crazy, I tell ya!

From the only page in the site's links section:OK - the phonebox cam is down. Someone rang it and said some stupid stuff to the kids there. A local guy, probably the kids father, then rightly got annoyed and called the cops. 4 Police officers then turn up and ask for the cam to be taken down. Funs over people.Proving once again that people on the Internet will always ruin everything.

So, wait, it's A-OK for the police to monitor you 24/7 in the UK, but people on the internet, that's a different story.

He didn't have to take the camera down.

What's illegal about publishing a number of a telephone box, or videoing what's going on outside your house?

The people on the internet didn't ruin anything.

The website creator caved-in to a little pressure of doubtful or non-existant legality. He spoiled the fun.

So there. :)

Clearly Blue Stone was the one who called up and said all those nasty things to those kids.

Shame on you!

Well I called, but no one answered.

Perhaps I'll call again later.
