451 Unavailable For Legal Reasons (Internet draft)

Defined in the internet draft “A New HTTP Status Code for Legally-restricted Resources”. Intended to be used when resource access is denied for legal reasons, e.g. censorship or government-mandated blocked access. Likely a reference to the 1953 dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451, where books are outlawed.

According to Submitterator user Frycook, the largest image on Wikipedia is a 25MB, 461 megapixel panorama of the interior of the Georgetown Power Plant Museum in Seattle. My browser refused to render it, and it crashed three image apps before I found one that I could snap a thumbnail out of.
