That is why we will forever remember this day, and maybe, just maybe, write it down on our history books.

Life as we know it resumed. Just ask the capitalists:

In the epilogue of this tale, hacker group The Lizard Mafia claimed it was their doing:

But it was quickly rebuked by FB officials, saying it was a fault in their systems:
