This is from The Onion (for those who aren't aware, it's satirical, not real, we hope.)
>AMERICAN VOICES The Onion
>Russian Gangsters Steal 1.2 Billion Passwords
>A Milwaukee online security firm discovered this week that a Russian crime ring has stolen 1.2 billion username and password combinations from internet users, the largest theft of its kind in history, and are using most of the information to send out spam in exchange for a fee. What do you think?
>I dont know which is worse: that gangsters stole 1.2 billion passwords, or that a security firm in Milwaukee was the only one to notice.

Sooner or later, I hate to break it to you, you're gonna die, so how do you fill in the space between here and there? It's yours. Seize your space.
