Airport Body Scans Reveal All | LiveScience
damn, that sure does get personal
doesnt leave much to imagine, does it

I wonder if we'll still have to take off our shoes?
doesnt look like it covers the shoe area
i dont disagree with that, but some people might not like that
to me, i aint got nothing to be embarrassed about
Well, that sucks. I'm so sick of all the stuff they put you through to fly that I avoid it at all costs. Waste of money, IMO.
i guess it depends on how far you have to go and how much time you can take doing so
to me, if it makes sure the plane is safer, i dont worry about
if some perv gets their jollies, not much i can do about that
Damned if they do and damned if they don't. The whole issue is that enough passengers complained about being touched during airport screening. So TSA came up with an alternative technology that reduces the need to touch passengers' bodies but allows them to still make sure they're not smuggling any weapons or explosives. Result? People bitching about ONE screener SEEING too much! (Unlike the regular x-ray machine, the body scan operator is in an isolated room out of public view and never gets to actually see the person who steps into the scanner; so the whole process is completely anonymous for both scanner and the person being scanned.)
This equipment would allow police officers to avoid embarrassing situations like this:
