1. NOAA Hurricane hunters

These federal employees fly into the eye of a hurricane to collect intel that helps predict the intensity and direction of storms.

If we were the first ones to lay eyes on the newest iPad plans, we’d be going crazy too!

Fortunately for everyone, there are brilliant federal employees who take these gadgets from patent to pawprint.

6. USAID

USAID, or “The U.S. Agency for International Development” works to help communities around the world through economic, developmental and humanitarian support.

The person who makes sure your snail mail gets to grandma in time for her birthday, and gets to oversee the USPS Citizen Stamp Advisory Committee. (Yep, that exists.)

See? look how happy you made her!
