    I don't work as airport security so I don't believe I'll ever be given the option.

    You know......there is a very easy way to solve this. Believe it or not, I saw it on FAUX News.......

    Some guy has set up a system that scans body heat via infrared scanner. Interestingly enough, it WON'T show what you look like underneath your clothes, however, if there is something blocking your body heat (such as a wallet, gun or whatever) the interruption of the heat escaping your body being blocked by whatever is under your clothes will show up plain as day.

    Simple solution? Replace the full body scanners with infrared body heat scanners, that way you'll never be seen naked under your clothes.

    This is why Republicans, you know, those guys who scream Obama keeps us unsafe, voted AGAINST using these before the Pantie bomber.

    Obviously, these pictures are hot, hot hot.

    One such technology is full-body scanning.

    According to Robert Poole, adviser to the White House and Congress on airport security following 9-11, the explosives “which the terrorist concealed in his underwear would have been detected had he been required to pass through one of the 15 millimeter-wave body-scanners now in use at Schiphol (Amsterdam Airport).”

    And Charlotte Bryan, a former top TSA and FAA official, told CNN that a body scanner could have stopped Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, terror suspect on Northwest 253.

    The major objection to the scanner comes from the ACLU and from libertarians on “privacy” grounds. This objection led the House of Representatives to ban full body scans. That the ban was led by a Republican, Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz, who continues to defend his opposition to body scanning, only shows that the left has no monopoly on foolishness.

    But it was House Democrats who overwhelmingly voted to ban body scans. Only a fifth of the Democrats in the House voted against the ban while two-thirds of the Republicans voted against it.

    If you use infrared, no body parts will be shown, just the things blocking body heat.

    Incidentally, I think infrared technology would be cheaper than these body scanners, because we've had infrared for quite a while now.

    Interestingly enough, this technology can also be used on scanning crowds.
