Not sure I like to see the major hub street addresses made public.

This is what the people at the internets want you to believe. Do you think it is just a coincidence that there are 7 layers.

Lots of erroneous engineering info.

“Large underground copper wires.”

Truth: large BUNDLES of small copper wire pairs (in some obsolete locations) - IIRC, One strand of single-mode optical fiber will carry 130,000 phone conversations, the equivalent of a 4” diameter cable with hundreds of small copper wire pairs.

“Fiber optic cable buried deep beneath the ocean” Nope. Unless it is crossing a harbor or near shore where dragging anchors are a problem, the cable carrying many optical fibers just lays on the ocean floor.

“riding a fiber of glass as thick as a silver dollar” The outside of one optical fiber is 125 microns in diameter. Cladding brings that up to 250 microns. The actual core that carries the light in single-mode fiber is about 8.3 microns. A micron is one millionth of a meter or one 1,000th of a millimeter. An average human hair is about 100 microns in diameter.

The complete CABLE with many optical fibers, protection layers, tensile strength members, etc is the diameter of a silver dollar (or larger in some cases).

True! The number 7 seems very important to the Free Masons! Just look at the measurements of the Statue of Liberty! In fact, it's an international conspiracy... And international organization determined that there were to be 7 layers, and IBM agreed, those corporate lackeys!

However, the cats that are actually within the tubes that make up the Internet have sabotaged them, and reduced the number to only 4 layers... Cats don't do international conspiracies that they're not in charge of!

Missing Cat

A cat was lost in the Data Center about a week ago.
It varies in color, ranging from blue, orange, yellow and white.
It responds to data packets.

If found, please connect it to the nearest work station.
