(null) > Weird spy > extreme perfectionist
by: Anna Pekuri

The spy could be so perfectionist that he has to arrange even dropped litter in a perfect angle (e.g. someone throws a gum paper on the street, the spy would pick it up and place it back symmetrically or something). Other one could be an eating habit. Every time the spy is about to eat he has to throw salt over his shoulders three times in total starting always with the left one. If not able to do so he has to stand up and do a chicken dance.

Hmm... yeah, that could work. Some kind of obsessive compulsive disorder. Also, maybe this spy doesn't get out of the office much and has trouble coping with work in the field. :)

What kind of personal habits could a spy have that would make them seem weird? They don't have to be related to their job, they could just be weird personal habits in general. Amusing personal habits would be best, to give the audience a laugh.

What are the most interesting and/or coolest ways that a character could gain entry to a government building without permission? They could be physical ways (e.g. cutting open a window) or social ways (e.g. distracting the guards), or anything else you can think of. These do not have to be realistic, this is not a realistic film. However, these do have to be filmable with a modest budget, so no helicopters or anything that requires a lot of money.

He enters the building pretending to deliver pizza.
...
He wears a suit and makeup that is identical to the walls and then slowly slides himself toward an entrance (pretending that he is the wall) :D

How about the "spok" method :D? To be more exact (so that non trekkies will understand as well ;D) spok disables an other person by pressing a pressure point at you neck (i think), very martial arts style :D

Some of the characters in the story may try to temporarily put certain people out of action. It would be nice to get some suggestions on how non-violent action of this kind could be shown easily, cheaply and in a way that looks cool. For example, one of the James Bond films had a cigarette which the user blew into and it spat sleeping gas from the other end, disabling the person next to them.

by: Thomas Shaddack

For certain feeding-related contexts. Addition of a suitably powerful hot sauce into somebody's food, which is then ingested, may lead to short-time temporary disabling of that person, who suddenly gets a set of mouth-on-fire related problems to immediately take care of. Usually accompanied with a telltale comedic behavior. A few chosen people from the top ranks of chileheads are virtually immune to such effects. This difference in the individual response rate may be used to lure the victim into thinking that their bottle of ketchup is not spiked with anything dangerous. Said extreme chileheads, adapted to the effects of capsaicin, also tend to have very attenuated response to pepper spray.

I know. I tend to take things too seriously and sometimes find it difficult to see when to stop. ...but in many cases it's more fun that way :D

I have always liked the thief approach,for instance grappling hook from adjacent building, then rapelling down to the window of an empty office. How about he sets off the alarm on purpose, then enters the building while it goes off(ofc in another part of the building). Or he sets off the alarm multiple times, in response they get service crew to take alook. He lies in wait for the maintenance people and uses for instance the neuralring i suggested earlier to knock em out. Uses a special device to put his own pic on id card,then simply walks into the building.

It was some of the Middle Eastern countries. They are a bit anal about those things. Poppy seeds in bulk, however, can be used as off-the-shelf drug. http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,24090561-2,00.html Americans also ran into the too high sensitivity problem. They got a supersensitive test for cocaine, and attempted to trace down banknotes that came in contact with cocaine, and track them back to dealers. Little did they know that virtually all money will test positive - rolled banknotes are used to snort the lines, and the contaminated notes, when stacked in the ATM machines, shed particles and contaminate other notes in the stack. Oops. http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/08/17/2658643.htm http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8204857.stm The same was discovered in London. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/464200.stm

Hey, we're not really going to do this, it is just for a fictional film... :) All we need is the dramatic concept of something hot being put in the food. It doesn't matter whether a particular brand would actually work. Tabasco is probably the best known brand in this field, so if there was a real world brand shown then that would be the one most familiar to the audience.

Tabasco is weak. Try out the infamous Dave's Insanity Sauce. Also, according to friends from Texas, other over-the-top rated ones to try are Vicious Viper, Black Mamba, the aptly named You Can't Handle This!, and few others. Some manufacturers even offer pure capsaicin - the food industry equivalent of a tactical nuclear demolition grenade. There's a small but hot market segment catered for by a few vendors, e.g. this one: http://www.chez-williams.com/Hot%20Sauce/hothome.htm Check out the table for the Scoville unit strength for comparison. Tabasco is somewhere... below. :D Other set of available offers is here: http://www.saucestore.com/hottest-hot-sauce.html Also, for description of rating the hot sauce (and conversely, OC-based pepper sprays), see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scoville_scale

FOrget tabasco, Dave's Insanity Sauce is the way to go: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/columnists/jeremy_clarkson/article6860067.ece Also, something like hat, a much smaller amount is needed so there is no suspiciousd "WHy is my food the worong color=?" moments. THe ketchup bottle scenario is still possible as well - I have consumed this stuff straight eithout ill effects. :P
