Spies are the stuff of legends. Everybody loves watching those crazy thrillers with James Bond hanging off the edge of a cliff as the car goes careening into the valley and ends up exploding into a huge fireball. While the movies definitely take some artistic license with what is really going on, the real spy world can be just as crazy. The CIA, the KGB, MI6, all of these are the world’s most recognized spy agencies. Whether it was the World Wars or the Cold Wars, they have always been at forefront of shaping what goes on in the world. If it weren’t for spies taking secrets from the United States, the Soviet Union wouldn’t have gotten nuclear weapons when they did. These kinds of things tip the scales of diplomacy and change the balance of power in the world. Of course, the life of a spy isn’t always glamorous and action packed. It involves a lot of normal stuff. After all, that’s the only way you can do your job without being caught…by acting normal. This means going to parties, talking to people, just doing everything you can to get that secret. These are 25 reasons that the world of spies is a crazy place!
