While these two events are not related in anyway, I am wondering why 
people don't create backup off site or don't plan normal failsafe's 
when there site is as big as Google (we have seen a few popular sites 
die because of this mistake)

Google fat-fingered something in their BGP configs(*) .. even with all 
the HA and redundancy in the world, mistakes happen.
BGP/Routing is probably the one place where a mistake will monkey-wrench 
even the most elaborate redundancy schemes.
