Pár zaručených rád z časáku

"Jeden smažák s hranolkami prosím. Alebo... Viete čo? Dajte rovno dva."
"Budete aj tatarku?"
"Jasné. Tou nešetrite."

Zatiaľ čo kedysi by vo mne podobný rozhovor tohto štíhleho chlapca s pani kuchárkou vzbudil závisť, dnes už vzbudzuje iba zhnusenie. Ako môžu necítiť ten hnusný pach lacného spáleného oleja? To fakt aj ja som toto kedysi jedol? A dokonca mi to chutilo?

Tak dlho to zberba zneužíva,
až sa spravodliví naserú
a vymerajú exemplárny trest.
Schytá ho nevinný.

Ženy sú závistlivejšie, ako muži.
Dôkaz?
Zatiaľ čo sa žena kurví,
muž je proste len borec.

Ľudia vôbec nepracujú tak tvrdo,
ako sa to snažia prezentovať.
Väčšinu času sa ľutujú a sledujú,
či neprecujete menej ako oni.

Kto je busy ten je in
a mať čas je hriech najvyšší.
A tak aj Ty vezmi ďalšiu šichtu
a nakupuj
veci čo vydržia dva roky
ale rozpadajú sa tisíc.

Malá ukážka, ako by mohla vyzerať moja tvorba zo špionážneho prostredia, keby sa mi všetky tie nápady chcelo niekedy spísať. V živote som nečítal žiadnu špionážnu detektívku, a tak to asi aj bude vyzerať. Možno objavujem už dávno objavené. Navyše je to po anglicky. No čo už, snáď aspoň jednej duši sa to bude páčiť. Ja som sa pri tom celkom vyblbol :D

Notes:
NOSA - National security agency of Aqualandia (something similar as CIA in the USA). Also a place of the plot.
N12 - National security agency of Relandia, i.e. the adversary of NOSA. Relandia is an ancient enemy of Aqualandia.
Gamma - counter-espionage unit of NOSA.
Hanssen - counter-espionage unit of N12.

Code S - One of the emergency modes of operation in NOSA. When NOSA is under Code S, it means it is under presumption, that at least some layers of security and encryption on electronic communication have been breached. As a result, all officials, agents and operatives have to meet *personally* to assign work and review progress, like in the old prehistoric times. That has, of course, its drawbacks. It is time- and resource-inefficient, but most of all, it poses a security risk. As meeting in person means there are less effective mechanisms for preserving anonymity. Of course, all agents and operatives are wearing Scramble suits at each meeting, but even Scramble suits represent a security risk compared to electronic communication. There are for example algorithms that can identify a person solely based on his way of movement, to name just one risk of many. Of course, there are many precautions to avoid identification even in electronic communications. For example, agents have to obey a Code of Writing at all times, which has many rules aimed at avoiding exhibiting distinctive personal signs, like for example overusing of certain words or phrases, names, cultural references etc. All writing has to be strictly generic and unattributable. The Code of Writing also regulates rules for password security, untrusted channels etc. etc.
Code A - Normal and desirable mode of operation.
Scramble suit - A suit worn by NOSA agents and operatives under Code S and Code P conditions, i.e. when they have to meet personally. It conceals agent's visage, voice and even sex. It is designed to keep agents anonymous to each other, so that they cannot reveal the other agent's identity to the enemy, either intentionally, or unintentionally. It is also a precautionary measure to make any identification attempts by the enemy (including abduction and torture of agents) useless. Most of all, it keeps the hierarchy structure of NOSA concealed even under Code S/P conditions and gives agents a sense of security. (Inspired by Scanner Darkly).
Class-B - code name given by N12 for auxiliary operations, i.e. operations of non-primary interest
PI - person of interest

When I got out of the car, there was a long dirt road ahead of me. So far the trees were sparse and the moon had enough shine to light the terrain where my feet were stepping. Then the terrain gradually changed in a more dense forest, the trail became thinner, steeper and soon non-existent. I had to light my headlamp and use a compass. When I finally reached the swamp, it was well beyond midnight. Total silence of the woods was replaced by buzzing of night insects and croaking of frogs. I changed shoes and started stepping into the soft mud. Something crawled nearby, but I didn't mind it. There was no reason to be afraid anymore.
