Although humankind is on the verge of landing a spacecraft on a comet for the first time in history this afternoon, let's face it, the real story of the day is Kim Kardashian's bottom.

The release of a Paper magazine's cover with the line "break the internet" may well just do that...

The magazine itself just went for a low key "BTW" to kick things off. With that, the internet was sent into a swirling cycle of chaos. Here's how Twitter reacted, shown in seven stages...

1. Shock

2. Denial3. Bargaining

4. Guilt

5. Anger

6. Anger

7. Acceptance

What a time to be alive.
