    The Apocalypse is amongst us all people! Be warned.

    Okay, Just joking here.

    But still, something more rare than a full moon just happened at 12:45am EST.

    So I was trying to open up Google to do a search and I noticed that the page load time was long (Google takes 1-2 seconds to load but the page was taking a minute with no results.) I thought my internet was down again so I opened good ol GBATEMP as a test to see if my network was undergoing some technical difficulties...but it was not!

    So I press the home button on my browser and let it load to see if Firefox gives me the "Server could not be found" error and instead I get this some error from their end with some website url being listed. IT was something along the lines of website-phishing-site or something like that. If I can get the page to load up again I'll copy-paste it into a spoiler.



    -Update! It is happening again! Is Google getting Hacked by some source? What is going on?

    Maybe, oh, I don't know...You have viruses/malware on your computer. It's working fine for me, and I'm sure for everyone else as well.

    Also, it can't be considered news until it's confirmed, and there is a reliable source, neither of which are available for this yet, because it's obviously not news. Just a heads up before you make another "news" topic.
