YouTube "Http/1.1 Service Unavailable"

Can anyone tell me why, right now YouTube is "Http/1.1 Service Unavailable" when I try to do anything with my account on the site?  Why does this even happen?

I thought the cloud was suppose to save us from this.  One node fails?  That's cool, we'll route to someone else. From my searches, it sounds like this is not an uncommon occurrence.  And has been happening for years.  This sounds like a lack of redundancy and a single point of failure.  This is exactly what Google assures us they do not have.

And yet, here I am, unable to access portions of YouTube with no explanation.  Nothing on the website, nothing on twitter, no signs at all of what's happening.  If this is what the cloud gives us, then it sounds like it's more cloud than computing.
