A friend applying for a government security clearance was instructed to fill out a form that would be required by the people who would take his fingerprints. The form doesn’t have a number, but it otherwise looks official. (And in any case, I doubt he has time to make something like this up.)
After the section on “Personal Information”, the form has a section called “Physical Description”, which I reproduce here verbatim:
|Male Name, No Gender Given|
|Female Name, No Gender Given|
|Blonde or Strawberry|
|Gray or Partially Gray|
|Red or Auburn|
Even if we were to guess that the “physical description” section was intended to be completed by the examiner (and the form doesn’t say that) . . . does anybody else think that maybe a cross-dressing purple-haired vampire-eyed dude is maybe not the most mentally stable person to grant access to our nation’s closely guarded secrets? Anybody?
