WASHINGTON — Americans are getting stressed out by the 2016 presidential election. There’s a survey to prove it.

So, when the third and final debate was underway Wednesday with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, some people wanted to escape.

For those folks, there were plenty of quirky options being streamed live on Facebook.

Take a look at a few of them below.

The cooking site Tasty had a 90-minute stream of a giant cookie slowly baking in an oven.

BuzzFeed Food decided to go with candy. It had an artist making art with M&M’s live for more than an hour and a half.

The main BuzzFeed Facebook page let you watch the debate with picture-in-picture, while a reel of “satisfying power washing videos” filled most of the screen.

The “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” had a string quartet improvising live music with the debate in real time.

The “Daily Show” created a zen garden with nature sounds playing over audio of the debate.
