    United Airlines lost their network today and shut down all flights for two hours.

    The New York Stock Exchange has completely shut down due to technical problems - never seen before.

    Is China behind this? Are they trying to bring us down? Hillary says that they're responsible for last week's massive hack into personnel files of all government employees.

    Wall street journal site was down for a bit as well and Chinese stock markets were continuing to tank like AGT's ratings just before the NYSE went down.

    The Chinese stock market is down 30% in a week, and all hell is breaking loose over there.

    The government is actually purchasing stock in an effort to stem the losses. The government has made it illegal for major holders to sell shares for the next six months.

    The Chinese are blaming evil foreigners for the collapse in the market, even though this is just a correction from the market going up over 100% in 12 months.

    Interesting, considering China's heading into their own stock market crash. I wonder if they fucked with the stock computers to quell it.

    I don't give a fuck about that shit. The real problem was when the Playstation Network was down last Friday on my day off.
