I just now tried to link to an éS rider video on YouTube when I encountered our good old friend, the "404 Not Found" message on a totally blank white page. Huh? How in hell did one of the biggest, most popular Web sites in the universe get lost? Imagine if MySpace went down, too, bro. Ten minutes later, the sound of that blaring "screamo" music in your iPod would be drowned out by air raid sirens, National Guard troops barreling down the roads and helicopters and squadrons of bombers flying overhead--all to quell the rioting and looting masses of humanity from coast to coast and around the free world. But all the marshall law and military intervention the man could muster would be to no avail, as the entire surface of the Earth would be reduced to rubble within the hour by traumatized internet surfers. No YouTube? No MySpace? End Times, indeed.
Addendum: YouTube is back up. Damn! I was really hoping that after armageddon, mankind would revert back to a more simple and primitive state..like the way life was back before the internet. And YouTube, don't try to pretend the outage didn't happen, because there's photographic proof above, and it ain't going anywhere.
