If you work at Langley and you need a break from actual intelligence gathering
, you can always try to crack the code
to the sculpture right outside the cafeteria window
is a sculpture by James Sanborn located on the CIA grounds which contains a four-part coded message

What, he couldn't find anything more
useless to do with his sabbatical?
