    I wanted to be a secret service agent once, but never had enough ambition to pursue it. I have a great amount of respect for these guys. Attention to detail and professionalism go hand in hand. They serve the president no who the president is.

    Drones scare me, kind of. Not helped by what I heard during a security conference talk by Chris Kubecka, who was at one point working in an embassy and had to witness first hand a drone spying on the premises while she was there. She also shared a number of other details, but what really stuck out was her saying "You never forget the first time you're droned."

    "So every president's going to have their own hobbies, and each one of those hobbies is gonna present a unique challenge for the Secret Service." I wonder what the protocol is if the president's hobby was to attend the more... let's say _unique,_ conventions (think Anthrocon or BABScon). Do they have to cosplay too to "blend in?" Or if the president's hobby is to drive a sports car around the country every Sunday. Will there be Secret Service members specifically picked for their driving prowess? Like, imagine driving the motorway when a group of Dodge Challenger Hellcats just went up and raced across in 200mph.

    One of my biggest gripes about “Air Force One” is that none of the secret service agents go for any headshots. Secret Service agents are supposed to be trained marksmen, they would have been trained as professional shooters to go for the head of their targets yet they uselessly empty their magazines at targets wearing bullet proof vets. If they had (as Thanos puts it) gone for the head the bad guys plan would have ended a lot sooner. Also I still can’t believe not a single agent was stationed outside the cockpit during the firefight.

    imagine if the president likes to play airsoft, the secret services will go berserk on cheaters and they will be the only ones playing with replicas and real weapons at the same time, imagine gun checks to see if you brought a real gun or a replica or the invisible wall that is protecting the president, it will be super difficult to "kill" the president , its basically cheating
