5 Ways The NSA Is Like A Psycho Ex

Sound familiar?

By now we all know that the National Security Agency has their eye on us. And not in a cute, flirtatious way. Everything we do is tracked. It's fascinating and creepy as all get out.

We imagine the world of spies through the eyes of Carrie Mathison of Homeland and Annie Walker of Covert Affairs. And while it seems cool as hell, on a personal level, the real-life NSA is starting to remind us of our psycho exes. Not cool.

Thanks to (infamous) NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, they've been caught red-handed acting super clingy and creepy.

1. No Boundaries

The NSA has no boundaries. In fact, one of their operations is called Boundless Informant. Basically, Boundless Informant allows the NSA to collect/monitor "identifiers" AKA your metadata AKA all of your personal information, including:

2. Your Phone Calls

They know when you're talking to your new boyfriend. The NSA also monitored the cell phones of foreign politicians at 2009's G20 Summit in London using "fake internet cafés." At least it's not just us.

3. And Your Emails

Even if you change your password, they're still reading. So they know when there's a 75% off flash sale at Kate Spade, too.

4. Sleeping With Your Friends

In an interview with documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras, Edward Snowden said that the NSA is "in bed with the Germans." (Meaning the NSA shares information with U.S. ally Germany and vice versa. However, with the latest developments in the Edward Snowden vs. NSA saga, it could mean more. See number 5).

5. Sharing Your Sexy Photos

That's the new development. The NSA had a sharing circle for nude, "sexually compromising" photos they intercepted. If it's not your naked pic, you shouldn't be sharing it. Even if you are the NSA.
