Having a government issued security clearance means that you are doing stupid things for stupid reasons... Not that there is anything wrong with that but... I have greater access than anyone who has a government issued security clearance and therefore, you *want* me to work for you regardless of what your *needs* might happen to be. Boeing Aircraft Company is objectified to me... They pay to have wooden ducks wind tunnel tested by people with government issued security clearances... and the reasons behind it are stupid reasons. What does Rice University do if I'm following in Richard Smalley's footsteps? They do nanotubes... What gets under nanotubes? All of the nanotubes spiral in the same direction... People who work on nanotubes may or may not know the stupid reason for why they have to do the things that the government requires them to do... Nanotubes are for the sake of 'microprint' given that the government requires security clearances for the sake of those who work on nanotubes. I don't have a problem with filling out an application for a security clearance but I'm not going to give the government my signature for free... You need to have a machine sign documents that are being submitted to the government. Given that I've proven Lie Detector Test Theory, it isn't possible for me to fail the government's lie detector test, ergo, I have the greatest access... I have bee's knees... bee's knees is a secret so how is it possible for me to have bee's knees? Since I have the greatest access, bee's knees is not a secret to me... LOOKING DOWN THE BARREL OF A GUN, PEOPLE... THE SECRET SERVICE AND THE CIA NEEDS TO ALWAYS BE LOOKING DOWN THE BARREL OF A GUN... THEY INVARIABLE DO THE STUPID THING INSTEAD OF THE IMPORTANT THING.
