This was clearly all a complex plot to make me watch 30-seconds of that falkie video.

apparently a pakistani isp that was following a pakistani govt directive to block youtube mis-configured something and it propagated to the entire internet, blacking out youtube to much of the world .

MSNBC's fact checking on this might be off. That or Pakistan screwed up youtube twice in a little over a decade.

I had seen this before, but I thought the Pakistani related outage occurred in 2008 as it was on a Sunday: Feb. 24, 2008.
"The block was intended to cover only Pakistan, but extended to about two-thirds of the global Internet population, starting at 1:47 p.m. ET Sunday"

Plus this article referencing Pakistan again from 2008?! It also mentions the ICANN issue....
