Computer guys can insert a code and kill your ability to watch YouTube.
SEALs can ruin a bad guy’s whole day.
Computer techs can ruin all your files…which also ruins your whole day.
Both of them use passwords and have their own language.
When called, you never know when either of them will show up.
