    A secret agent must be small and sly,they must be silent as they walk and enjoy watching "24" with Kiefer Sutherland,They must be able to look inconspicuous ,so tall and morbidly obese people who wear Mexican sombrero's needn't apply.A secret agent must have been Christened with a cool name like Lydia Jackal or Peter Spikemonger.
    Most secret agents are plucked from the ranks of the boy/girl Scouts ,so be aware of anyone trying to sell you cookies as they probably have a hidden agenda.
    Most Secret agents like cheese.
    Most secret agents tuck their shirts into their underwear (which leaves a very visible panty line)this is usually a big giveaway and the main reason so many agents died during the cold war(that and hypothermia).
    A secret agent's preferred weapon is a silenced Walther PPK 22mm but some have been know to use household objects like dustpans and the ever available cheese-grater.
    As i said earlier most secret agents like cheese but some are lactose intolerant and prefer fruit after dinner.
    A double agent is one that has a doppelganger or at least someone that looks quite similar(sometimes they are related like the boys from Hanson)
    Israeli secret agents are called Mossad because they like to hide on rocks.
    Although most secret agents like cheese most prefer it in it's natural state and not cooked (like on Pizza's)
    If you are accosted by a secret agent the best line of defence is to remove your back-pack and place it on your head to try and make yourself look taller.
    If you are already tall or large and have a Mexican sombrero you could try using that.
    I hope I've been of help.
    peace and be careful out there.

    I choose to interpret this as meaning how to become a secret agent. In that case its easy, walk around outside the NSA for a while wearing an armani suit and aviators occasionally touching your pocket as if there is something in there and talking through your imaginary ear piece. In no time at all they'll ask you to become a double agent. Thats how is see it atleast...

    I was a literary agent in Hollywood for 15 years and still have a management company with my husband representing screenwriters and novelists.  Breaking into this business is actually easier than some of the careers in Hollywood.  It helps if you... read more

    To become an insurance agent the first step you would want to do is to get your insurance license for your state.  This way your licensed and ready to be hired. I suggest you get your Property & Casualty First, then Life & Health, and then your Securities License.  Usually you can take a class to get the required hours needed to get your license.  That's what I did.   Or if your a book person usually you can also get the book version. Then you just study at home and go take the test.  There is usually a fee involved to take the test.  Then once your licensed you just keep your license active by getting the required continuing eduction credits. In my state is 24 credits every two years.  There are always insurance companies out there looking for new agents.  So, an Insurance License is a great thing to have in your back pocket!
