In summary, the conversation discusses a job posting for a science and technology weapons analyst position at the CIA, with one person questioning whether it is a desk job or a more exciting opportunity. Someone suggests becoming a hit man instead, but the original poster mentions the potential for career advancement within the government. The conversation then shifts to comparing the CIA to the NSA and the potential for success in the job with strong math skills.

Well it is a desk job most likely (analysing satellite imagines and technical drawings i suppose) but sounds pretty awesome in its own right :P

why not just become a hit man? i.e. I can only think of two outfits in the US that use assassination as a modus operandi, the mob and the cia.

That's a question I've often asked myself... heh :tongue2: just kidding.

But yeah, it does sound pretty interesting. As a gov position it's quite likely you could continue in school at taxpayers expense and possibly work into other departments - where ever your interests are... (spy, spy, spy, spy) o:)
