    Unfortunately no. There's quite a bit of redundancy built in at all points so this sort of thing can't happen.

    But, the easiest way to cause some global internet chaos would be to go after the US-controlled DNS system. There are lots a handful of servers, but somehow bringing them down would prevent website addresses ( http://www.whatever.com) from taking you to the actual site.
     
  3. google-servers are located on my campus, pull the plug there and you can't use google anymore lol.
     
  4. I could live without internet.
