I always thought there was a fine line between being a spy and being a stalker. They are kind of one in the same, but being a secret agent man who travels the world on missions makes you a badass, and well, being just a regular man who watches women through the bushes makes you a perv. Just think about it, if James Bond never joined the British Secret Intelligence Service, then he could of easily become a peeping tom who likes to watch old ladies knitting. Anyway, the Museum of Nature and Science has an ongoing exhibit, The Science of Spying, to help you practice your detective/lurker skills or creepiness...whatever you want to call it. You will be learning everything from cracking open a safe to working on your powers of observation. Once you have mastered the world of spying, or at least improved your skills, then a spy mission awaits you. I can't tell you what it will be, mainly because I don't know. The Science of Spying will run until January 4, 2010, at the Museum of Nature and Science (3535 Grand Ave. and 1318 S. 2nd Ave. in Fair Park).
