This happened to Amazon S3 as well once. The "X" image they use to indicate a service outage was served by... yup, S3, which was down obviously.

One of the projects I worked on was using data URIs for critical images, and I wouldn’t trust that particular team to babysit my goldfish.

Sounds like Google and Amazon are hiring way too many optimists. I kinda blame the war on QA for part of this, but damn that’s some Pollyanna bullshit.
