About This Quiz

You have to be in good shape, both mentally and physically, you have to be prepared to spend hours doing nothing at all and then burst into action at a moment's notice. Not only that, but the hours are horrible, your life is often in danger and you are constantly put into really difficult situations with some pretty unsavory people.
