A little 75-year old lady brought down the entire internet for millions of users in Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan after severing a fiber-optic cable while digging for copper wire to sell as scrap. GOD, GET A JOB GRANDMA!
The elderly woman is now facing a prison sentence in her native Georgia, after she reportedly did with a spade what a legion of hackers could only dream of - took down all access to the internet in neighbouring Armenia for up to 12 hours.
She reportedly faces up to three years in prison after being charged with damaging property.
'Taking into account her advancing years, she has been released pending the end of the investigation and subsequent trial,' interior ministry spokesman Zura Gvenetadze told the AFP news agency.
I mean that's pretty wild and all, but you know what the craziest part of this whole story is? There's a country called Azerbaijan. AND IT HAS THE INTERNET.
