Where were you during the great Gmail Blackout of 2014?

Google's email service crashed for a couple of hours today (or a couple of minutes, depending on the user), leaving over 450 million people without access to Gmail.

Give up on life?

So yeah, the Internet really panicked. And complained. And made jokes. You know, the usual stuff that happens online. In case you missed out on the hullabaloo, here's a quick recap of how the Internet reacted to the Big One of Jan. 24, 2014:
