Hack a Bunch of Hacks discusses the fact that all current government employees are security-compromised. Hence the government will have to hire all-new top-secret personnel who have never before worked for the federal government. If this describes you, you are eligible for a new, high-paying, high-security job. When you apply, you will be given a form to be filled out in order for your new employer to conduct a security check.
But do not be fooled. This request for information is your first test: If you give any information beyond your name and the town you live in (“name-and-town, name-and-town”), you will be insulting the team that investigates you, as if they require any more information than your name-and-town. This is Question 1 of the IQ test for all new high-security hires in the federal government. The correct answer is to not answer it (except name-and-town).
