It was Dead Jim

In case you missed the bombshell: NASDAQ market index halted on Thursday August 22, 213

Timeline of halts:

December 1987: Squirrel cuts power cable

August 1994:      Another Squirrel Bites a Cable

August 2013:      NASDAQ halts again

Here are my favourite Internet Rumours

  1. The FED did it!
  2. AAPL (sub 500) did it  (see also )
  3. Another Squirrel did it

Only time will tell what the real issue was.
