Users across the world started to notice that the video service’s sites and mobile apps were down around 9:20pm ET, and everything remains inaccessible more than an hour later. YouTube TV and Youtube Music are also affected by the service disruption.

YouTube is down, so please stand by for the total collapse of human civilization

    See what disappears when it all comes back on line. Or, uh- I guess you won’t see what disappears.
    Not to get all conspiratorial, but–
    Qanon said this kinda’ thing was gonna’ happen…

    And speaking of conspiracies–
    You’ll notice on the map that yoo tube is readily available throughout Russia, China, and Sub Saharan Africa. No outage there.
    Makes ya go HMMMM, don’ it?

    Nothing to fear. It’s just World Control rearranging things. You will soon love World Control.

    Youtube went down just as we were about to watch Mars Attacks . . .

    My pucker factor lasted for about a second. When Google/YouTube goes down, this is the start of a conflagration. Whew. Dodged that bullet.

    Speaking of dodging bullets: news comes in of an asshole in Crimea just now conducting a school shooting. I never go to conspiracy on these; I just don’t buy ’em in the US mass school shootings. But, in Russian occupied Crimea, this guy has a huge kill rate, and although the news says he used a rifle, in fact he is shown with a 12 gauge shotgun. Totally professional work, and completely the opposite of American shoot-em-up idjits over the past few years. I am less afraid of pikers, and very respectful of professional killers correctly armed. He capped it off with a bomb, like a good assassin would.

    News got real, there. Russian-sanctioned school shooting. Put that in your world view; if my hunch is correct, it is chaos on a grand level.

    Not pro, but possibly experienced with shooting in general.

    I think you are a Beatles fan. I’m not so much, but there are covers that really knock me out. The first one is the divine Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks doing “I Got A Feeling”. The second is Todd and Joe Jackson doing “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”.

    I do tech support for a small ISP. Last call last night was about a You Tube error. Didn’t learn about the outage until after I’d logged out for the night. Glad it was someone else’s problem.
