I recently filled out a form for a security clearance. It said that it would take approximately 1.5 hours to fill out this form. It required every address where Ive lived for 10 years; also the name address and phone number of somebody who knew me there. It needed my Dads naturalization numbers from 1940. My Dads papers said that this was done in a Federal Military District Court which no longer exists, but the form would not allow me to advance to the next page until I had put in a zip code. Zip codes came along in the 1960s so I used one for a court that Google said was in the same city. All in all I spent roughly 8 hours. Yes, if you had all the data and only had to type it in, you could have finished in 1.5 hours.

It's heartbreaking to see.
