What Would it Take to Legitimately Break the Internet? [INFOGRAPHIC]

As much as I hate to bring her up, we all remember when Kim Kardashian claimed to have “broken the internet” not too long ago. It was obviously a vain attempt at attention because she didn’t even put a dent into breaking the internet – honestly, I don’t even know why the two were connected in the first place (click bait)?

Regardless, it got me thinking: what would it actually take to break the internet? In my research to get to the bottom of this, I came across an infographic from Liquid Networx that details what could legitimately disrupt the flow of internet for us all.

It’s kind of a harrowing situation to consider, given that our current infrastructure could be disrupted fairly easily by a number of different contingencies. For example, as Liquid Networx points out, sharks are overly fond of chewing on underwater internet cables – Jaws, anyone?

Levity aside though, it’s something we should pay attention to because the internet dictates so much of our day to day lives. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel though, because there are some incredibly strong forces holding the internet together that we can all work to strengthen.

Here’s Liquid Networx’s infographic – click to expand:
