How real is this alleged internet blackout?

I keep hearing rumors that there is going to be an internet blackout soon. Under what scenario might this be a real possibility?

    It's not an internet blackout. It's old shit not being kept updated.

    listen zoomers:
    in the 90s they said that the millenium 2000 will crash everything because computers cant handle the time reset.
    in the 00s they said that everything will crash because the internet is running out of IPs.
    in 2010s i dont know right now what the big crash thing was
    but never anything happened. its called media propaganda to make people scared. now its the sun erruption bullshit. nothing will happen

      Because engineers spent the previous decade fixing everything that would have broken.
      >in the 00s they said that everything will crash because the internet is running out of IPs
      Because of hideous solutions like blocking common people from getting static IPs.

      Russia was going to mind control people over social media. Lucky that was prevented also.

        Ehh they actually procrastinated it until like the last year lmao it ended up being a bit of shit shoot as companies rushed to try and make everything compliant. Anyways a lot of systems managed just fine that weren't made compliant and in some cases people just set the system clock back. Wasn't a big deal.

        You were doing fine until that. Unless you just forgot the echos around Russia.

        Huh, the ocean level actually lowered a little there.

        Anyway, it's a bad example. Antarctica isn't ice floating in water, it's metres of ice on a small continent. If that stuff melts we gain a landmass even less useful than Iceland or Siberia or whatever, because it doesn't have any soil bacteria or the other microorganisms farming actually needs, and we lose a lot of the most fertile farmland in the world to ocean level rise. On the plus side most cities get fucked over.

        freshwater is not as dense as saltwater, freshwater actually has greater volume than an equivalent weight of saltwater. Thus, when freshwater ice melts in the ocean, it contributes a greater volume of melt water than it originally displaced.

        Youre a retard. When theres a bunch of ice FLOATING ABOVE the water level, and said ice ABOVE the water level melts, it raises the level of the water it is FLOATING IN.

        Also, melting fresh water into salt water causes the salination levels to change, which in turn will eventually cause the currents of the ocean to change Those currents drive air currents due to heating and cooling effects. Those, in turn, drive weather patterns. Not good things

          Please finish elementary school, anon. I am worried about you.

          At least you have a basic understanding here. Can't really argue that except to say heat levels affect water currents a bit more than salination in this regard.

          ice is also less dense than water, if you know what that implies

            Not the ice on antarctica, which is the real problem.

          The one important thing you forgot to mention is that salination levels are tied to the marine ecosystem.
          Once those change millions of sea life will start to die, or migrate to places they don't belong completely shifting the food chain and causing potentially billions of human deaths as a result.

        That picture is retarded.

        Yes, ice which swims in the water won't rise the water level. The problem is all the ice which ISN'T in the water yet (e.g. on Antarctia or Greenland) because that will increase the sea level once it melts and flows into the ocean.

    The Internet is not a monolith. Its a complex system of many scattered, decentralised parts, although some parts are more centralised than the others.

      Whenever google or cloudflare go down, half the internet goes with them.

        And that's a good thing. If a site uses cloudflare for anything other than offering a cached version to redirect to, they're retarded. Even using the cached version, they're retarded because there is no functionality so unless you have documentation that no one else offers, people will just go elsewhere until your shit pops back up.

        If half the Internet goes down when Google goes down, that is good too. Crayon eaters get filtered out and scrapers get knocked offline for a bit.
