Over 50% of the world spam comes from Russia...

Surprise.. ok, maybe not.

Ukraine is in there too. I wonder what a Russian ethics class looks like.

Ethics Class.

Professor: Ok, is it ethical to steal bread from the wealthy to feed your starving family.

Russian: That easy one. You just shoot them in head, then say you found bread with no owner...

Ahhh, eating a whole tin of spam drenched with Tabasco while sitting on the top of my wagon sunbathing on the Canadian prairie, watching a rattlesnake slither by and wondering when our gunner is going to notice its all of three feet away from him...

Spam is the most disgusting thing ever. It's weird the crap you will eat when your on exercise.

Spam, cheese and marmite between two lumps of bread. Delicious!

I was once present in a 'Secret Cold War Bunker' when we surveyed the food stocks that were intended to last through until 'recovery'. It was basically Spam. So, it would seem our strategic survival plan relied on something Russia controls. Worrying.

Spam fritters with beans and mash, can't beat it. Especially with a bit of tabasco in the beans.

Our local chippy does spam fritters, I wonder if they are Ruskies ? Maybe its the new Cold war starting, that wall at the back does look a bit too substantial.

Russia becomes spam superpower
12 February 08
...
According to Sophos’s Q4 2007 spam report, the country now deserves the moniker of ‘spam superpower’ having seen its share of total volumes rise dramatically over the last year, to put it in firmly in second place behind arch-rival, the US.
...
It’s not just the Russians who deserve bad press from the latest figures. The US sent a towering 21.3 percent of global spam over the quarter, with China in third place behind Russia with 4.2 percent, and a clutch of countries including many European ones, not far behind. Russians will also no doubt point out that Europe’s overall spam-relaying figures dwarf that of their country. Europe’s combined total is now a concerning 27.1 percent.
...
The good news for the US is that its spam volumes are in decline, while other are climbing. Judging by the latest increases, Russia could in theory overtake the US in the next two years

I always thought Spam was a US food. I actually got a good book for Xmas a couple of years ago '100 Ways to Cook Spam'. Would have been a good pressie if I even liked Spam a little bit but I don't.

The Russians are welcome to all the Spam they can eat!!!

Let's look at it in the more wide context.

The Evil (Cyber) Empire
Inside the world of Russian hackers.
...
Did Russian hackers manage to steal tens of millions of dollars from Citigroup? While The Wall Street Journal reports that the FBI is investigating the alleged loss, the financial organization denies losing money in such a security breach. It may take awhile to uncover the truth, but reports of the attack have cast yet another spotlight into the shadowy world of cybercrime.
...
The assaults may seem to be political. In 2007, a cyberattack on Estonia, home of the popular Internet phone company Skype, paralyzed the country's entire government. Then, when the Russia-Georgia conflict flared in 2008, software suddenly became available to anyone wanting to wage their own personal cyberwar on the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. And later that year, Lithuania too became a cyber-victim when it vetoed negotiations between Russia and the European Union. Indeed, NATO takes the threat of cyber-warfare so seriously that it signed off on a special report on the topic during its parliamentary assembly last October. "Although there is no conclusive evidence that the cyberattacks in Georgia were executed or sanctioned by the Russian government," the NATO report notes, "there is no evidence that it tried to stop them, either."

You can never get that shiote off the bottom of a mess tin though. Frustrating.
