The real ninja skillz are yours for the knowing. Want to know how to suck data off a laptop with nothing but your mind? Poke your way into a corporate e-mail server without touching a keyboard?

The one that lets you pass through walls untouched, surrounded by a cool-looking (but smelly) cloud of smoke. How about sucking sensitive data from a corporate network from the parking lot? Without a wireless device. How about blending in with the feds? You can chat with them about...fed stuff, and they'll accept you as one of their own. All this and more. The underground is gonna' be soooooo ticked off.
