What the hell is wrong with people?

About four hours ago, Facebook went down. Like really down. Many users worldwide were unable to access the social network at all, and those who did saw a service operating at a well-below optimal level. The outage lasted for as much as an hour for some – it was pretty bad. Productivity soared. Zuckerberg wept.

Apparently, the struggle was so real, that people called in to report it as an emergency – at least according to Sgt. Burton Brink of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

But wait – a wrinkle:

Despite the LAPD's insistence that no calls were made regarding the Facebook outage, Sgt. Brink maintained his position:

Of course, it's possible that calls came in to specific Sheriff station, or someone missed some calls. What motivation would Sgt. Brink have to make this up?

I'll choose to believe that people are that dumb. Because people are that dumb.
