I just got an article of spam with the subject "How one can become a
terrorist"

It is pretty entertaining, if not a tad worrysome
I've provided snipits from it below.

************************************************** *************************
We would like to introduce our new-born site, where you can shop around
most wanted and needed items in your life.
Our weapon section has wide range of hard-to-find machine guns,
silencers, armour-piercing ammos and others.

First of all, let\'s check our 3 top-selling items:
1. Russian surface-to-air missle SA-14 \"Gremlin\" (upgraded analog of
SS-16 \"Strela\") from our supplies in
Kazakhstan.
Due to high demand, it takes about 4 weeks to backorder that item.
Weight is 10,2 kg., lenght - 1427 mm. You can make a huge party and
you can have tons of fun launching your
\"Gremlin\"
with your buddies.
2. Israeli bestselling submashine-gun \"Tavor\" 5.56\" (upgraded analog
of 7.65\" \"Uzi\"), comes with 2 full clips
of standart ammo + bonus one clip of armour-piercing ammo.
3. Russian booby trap made in 5 versions:
- a bottle of Jim Beam (200 grammes of C4 inside),
- a can of Budlight beer (150 grammes of C4 inside),
- a Barbie-doll (100 grammes of C4 inside),
- a cell phone (50 grammes of C4 inside),
- a lighter Zippo (25 grammes of C4 insid
************************************************** ***************************


now this line made me cringe.
************************************************** ***************************
You can take one with you to the school or college and have alot of fun
with your buddies.
************************************************** ***************************


And this is just classic.
************************************************** ***************************
P.S. Due to our government laws all items from our shop can be sold only
to 18+ aged people. We can ask you for age
verification before shipping.
************************************************** ***************************

Im so glad that they limit it to being sold to persons over 18 yrs old.

What is C4--is it a kind of explosive?

Somebody should tell a certain TV channel...

Well, there's a difference between "_with_ your buddies" and "_at_ your
buddies" ...
