    Scientists say they have solution to TSA scanner objections

    Just asking because the Obama admin is trial ballooning this idea in the press.

    Personally I couldn't give a shit if some remote stranger sees me neked if I wasn't getting nuked in the process, maybe being inadvertently sterilized or genetically modified by under qualified airport security techs.

    Just think how heavy that drape in the dentist office is for a single x-ray. Then think how long a dental x-ray lasts (its a FAST zap) and now long they have you stand and image you in that little set up they got going.


    Fuzzing out all outlines is fine by me....IF it would work.

    I've just decided that I'm not going to fly again until the American people decide that they want to stop being pussies.

    I dunno shit about this, but I know that there are medical screening technologies that don't use harmful x-rays. Magnetic Resonance Imaging, perhaps others.

    There must be 10 different spectrums of electromagnetic waves that can be used to detect contraband besides high energy x-rays? Infrared?

    I wouldn't take the word of the government that this is actually what's happening considering you certainly can't take their word that the images aren't stored.

    They don't need to molest 80 year old nuns to make security work, either.

    What I don't understand is that since SONAR is used safely on unborn children why isn't TSA using it? The American taxpayer will end up paying for every death, cancer and whatnot that can be imputed to this idiotic system.

    Because it would suck to have the slimy couplant spread all over ones body.
