How to be a spy

Apr 19, 2007 Full story: Chicago Tribune 80

“We no longer have to compromise your identity to compromise the privacy of others.”

Pssst. Hey kid. Over here. Did you know you can spy on your parents? It's true. All you have to do is get your folks to take you to The Boring Store, a 2-month-old spy equipment store in Wicker Park.

It's filled with the latest and neatest in covert spying gear -- stuff like audio bugs, grappling hooks, fingerprint dust and fake mustaches.

And if you're a parent? You can get back at them with legitimate equipment and gadgets used by law enforcement officials -- all found at other spy stores in the area. All you need are some sneaky spy equipment, a passable Jack Bauer impersonation, and acceptance that if your kids ever find out you're spying on them, they will never, ever trust you again.

"Ellen" if you are "allready" a spy, how is it that someone with obvious lack of intelligence has been assigned to an organisation that gathers intelligence...maybe you should spy on a dictonary.

I WILL TELL YOU A SMALL STORY.
ONE OF MY FRIENDS USED TO MAKE LOVE TO UNDERAGES GIRLS AND ADULT FEMALES AND THE HOUSE WIFES ALL DAY AND NIGHT AND USED TO PHOTOGRAPHING THEM BY MOBILE OR SURVILLANCE CAME TO BE SEND TO THE EMAIL TO EVERYONE EVEN IF HE IS STRANGER OR NOT TO MAKE EVERYBODY SEE THE GREAT WILL DONE HE MADE ??????
ONCE HE GOT A SMALL CLIP WITH A WOMEN BELONG TO THE ONE WORKING IN THE HIGH SECURITY INTELLEGENCE DEPARTMENT .
HE HAD BEEN ARRESTED AND BEFORE HE GO TO JAIL ONE OF THE OFFICERS SHOW HIM SOMETHING ALREADY DISTROYED ALL HIS LIFE .DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS IT ? IT ONE A RECORDED TAPE FOR HIS SISTER WITH SOMEONE'S APPARTMENT MAKING LOVE AND OTHER ONE FOR HIS WIDOW MOM WITH STRANGER AND TOLD HIM AN GOLDEN ADVICE .
SUN YOU WAS PHOTOGRAPHING THOSE PEOPLE TO SHOW THEIR SINS TO THE OTHERS BUT IS THAT MEAN YOU ARE A PROPHET WITHOUT SINS ? DO YOU THINK THAT YOUR FAMILY OUR YOIUR BELOVED RELATIVES DOESN'T DOING THE SAME ? WHO TOLD YOU THAT YOU MAY KNEW EVERYTHING HAPPENED AROUND YOU .AND THEN HE WAS DROPPED ON THE GROUND FROM THIS VERY HARD SHOCK.,SORRY IT IS TRUE STORY NOT SEEN IN A MOVE .
DEAR BROTHERS .PLEASE TAKE CARE ABOUT THIS .PLEASE AND LEAVE THE OTHERS PRIVACY FOR THEMSELVES BECAUSE WE DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO IT .AND REMEMBER. THE ONE HIS HOUSE WAS BUILT OF GLASS IS NOT SUPPOSE TO THROUGH THE OTHERS WITH ROCKS AT ALL.
YOURS FAITHFULLY

Interesting, and I wonder how old this is. I guess the bulk of these post are written by kids, I am not sure. I do see some interest in spying/investigation, but I think I would leave it up to trained individuals.

I cannot imagine why someone from Egypt Might elect to converse on a subject such as this.

You have a conscience. Use it. Do no Harm to your fellow man. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Do unto others as you would have them do unto YOU.

I already have a REAL spy organization, and we've been getting 2 or 3 reports on suspicious activities of construction workers. If you would like to join, email me at mr.bunnyishere@yahoo.com

Ds is great, except you cannot really chat to people who are in tight spots, walkie talkies are too loud. and headsets can cost up to $60 so low budget people are out of luck. codes are great. In fact, email me at mr.bunnyishere@yahoo.com and I'll teach you how to be a spy really fast, easy, and inexpensive.
