Sonic is having a big fiber outage today in Berkeley and Santa Rosa, which is really jamming me up

According to Sonic, a squirrel chewed through the fiber optic cable.

The Internet is a massive pile of hilariously fragile layers

@rtyler I can't wait for the next ad campaign: "High speed internet. Now with squirrel protection! Buy now!" 😆

@rtyler "Mr. President, there has been a major cyber attack on our core network infrastructure!"

"We will not stop until we bring the perpetrators to justice!"

"Sir...we've already killed the squirrel...!"
