For many, many years, undercover cops have been issued fake ID's so that they can do the clandestine work they need to do when they're, you know, UNDERCOVER. You would just assume that that's the case (being that they're UNDERCOVER and all) but, believe it or not, the state Legislature didn't even know about the program until about a week ago. Makes you wonder what other overwhelmingly obvious things these folks are unaware of. Almost scary... but that's a story for another day. Obviously, a fake identity is the hallmark of effective undercover work, but many of us have assumed a false identity for some reason. Sometimes it's just a fake ID to get into a bar when you're underage, other times it's a case of mistaken identity, but you just roll with it. Today we wanted to know: WHEN DID YOU PRETEND TO BE SOMEONE YOU AIN’T? (yea, 'ain't').
Back in 1991, he borrowed his Russian friend's passport so that he could visit the Black Sea. Can't say I've ever done anything quite like that
Currently 17 and uses a fake ID to buy beer
At age 17, had an 'authentic' ID that said he was 27... got busted by the cops
Had a few warrants out for his arrest, so when the cops confronted him, he gave them a fake name... turns out that the other name he gave ALSO had a warrant out
Has pretended to be gay, blind and from Australia just to get laid. To be fair, he didn't pretend to be all three of these things at the same time, but on separate occasions
Put on an old Boy Scout uniform and went around raising money for a 'camping trip'... he kept all the money
Pretended to be homeless so he could get medical treatment. Can't blame the guy for that one
Missed her flight home from Vegas... the airline called for the last passenger to get on ANOTHER flight, so she pretended to be that person and made it home
THE BLUE DART
I've hinted about a project that I've quietly been working on for the last few years; well, here's a better description of the thing:
Very excited about this project. I'll let you know when we officially launch it.
Until we meet again, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
