Facebook went down twice this week, sending web surfers everywhere into a withdrawal spiral (and mass exodus to Twitter).

Here are five cultural observations from how people responded to the shutdown:

1. This is the best time to be a bachelor in Nevada.

2. Humor makes everything better (duh).
3. Modern humans are migratory.
4. We're all conspiracy theorists sometimes.
5. Some of us probably need to rearrange our priorities.
