So if that L pill kills you before you hit the floor, why aren't death row convicts getting those instead of the injections.

It's probably pretty expensive, and you know how that goes - why waste an effective, but expensive, suicide pill on some criminal scum, if you could use a cheaper , though a liiiitle bit less effective, alternative? Who cares about them anyway?

You know... we ditched cable tv and our land line provider over 10 years ago now because they had a monopoly locally with no other alternatives to compete, so they were over priced ($240per month land line/cable tv) and the service was even worse. When a company has no competition, then they have no incentive to treat their customers well because they know we have no where to go. Anyways, the reason I dont miss tv @ all is because before it use to be a one way communication, the tv would talk and we would listen. Looking back it seems more like programming than informing. Now though? lol All that is a thing of the past, now we can call out bs when we see it. I think that is a great thing but I also think it is a major part of why society seems like they are so @ odds with each other.

The superman one was kinda underrated; it wasn't just the glasses, the hair style the unconfident way he talked his entire body language those were a way for him to disguise too

Former CIA operative says: "We don't use the media as a cover." Take that China! By the way, dear secret services around the world I have another group that should be off limits: Zoologists. You can't even go around the world doing research on wild animals without some nutjob regimes accusing you of spying.

Look at the stimulation the wired uses to keep you watching. Rather than let the lady talk alone they use the movie clips to interject stupid comments while shes talking. Thats really pathetic

On the working uniform bit; it's surprising how easy it is to get into most places with a high vis vest. Free public transport rides, walking around abandoned parks, etc. It works every time!

She said an agent wouldn’t pretend to be drunk then said there are ways to look like you are drinking when you are not. So..?? You ARE tricking people into thinking you’re drinking

Actually. The movie of Superman just simply failed to show that one of Superman's many abilities is the ability to alter his appearance slightly. He would change his eye color, change his height, even hunch down to change his posture. Things like that. He could even alter his voice to sound different. So if you saw a video of him as Clark and one as Superman, they would look and sound completely different. But they didn't show that off, because they followed the comics where it was decided it was cheaper to just draw him the same but in a different outfit, so the film does not show him being different as the lore of superman suggests.

"Just dyeing your hair is ineffective. You see, when we did Sandy Hook we put every 'parent' in baseball hats and sunglasses. And that one woman who appears in every fake school shooting always has a different pair of glasses. That's how we do it, you don't just dye the hair it's ludicrous."

The only reason she gave any of this information is that the CIA cleared her to do so first. Once in, never out. Her husband? Give me a break. Look up the term "annuitant."

I never liked that mission impossible scene with the duct tape, the person wearing the mask needs to have a smaller face, so you couldn't have 2 people wearing each other faces, because one of them must have too big a head

No mention of Get Smart's spy furniture :-( I know of one organization that used fake drinking as part of their cover - empty beer bottle in restroom and fill it with water to appear as if you are drinking. Ultimately most of their covers were blown anyway.

I agree on everything, except Megan Fox's disguise change. EVERYONE would be looking at her. She wouldn't have a chance to snag anything to change into like that. If it were someone else more vanilla, they could very easily. The way she did it worked well.
