75-Year-Old Woman Cuts Entire Country Off from the Internet

Elderly people and the Internet are timeless foes. A 75-year-old lady from the Republic of Georgia scored a point for the olds when she cut off the entire country of Armenia from the net last month.

According to the AFP, the woman was scavenging for scrap metal around the village of Ksanai on March 28. She came across a fiber-optic cable linking Armenia to Georgia and she cut it up to sell the copper. Unfortunately, that cable provided the majority of Armenia's internet service, and the poor Armenians were cut off from the Internet for "hours" that evening. Now she faces up to three years in prison.

Hey, Armenia, maybe you shouldn't rely on a single, fragile cable to connect your entire country to the Internet? This is like something from a Looney Toons cartoon.
