Google South Africa was down for a few minutes on Thursday and before we could thrive in the joys of search-engine dependent citizens losing their minds and “Asking Jeeves”, it was back up again.

No we did not imagine it. As proof, two South Africans took to Twitter to acknowledge they had noticed it as well.

@danielbigred from Twitter, turned out to be the fastest fingers in the great Google “Gone for a Second” event:
