Five-Year-Old Crying Because NASA's Website Is Shut Down Is So Sad

Well, this is just horrible. Summing up how sane people feel about the US government shutdown, a five-year-old boy is in tears because NASA's official website no longer works. Squabble all you want, but don't rob kids of their space game dreams!

The video was uploaded by Ybeth Bruzual, a newscaster in Orlando, Florida. She wrote:

5 year sobs on day 1 of federal shutdown. We got home from school and his favourite website nasa.gov was shutdown...to our surprise. He plays the kids games every day and now he is heartbroken.

Just brutal. Do your jobs, people. For the children! [Ybeth Bruzual via @VeronicaMG via BoingBoing]
