Beating the body scanners

Recommended Posts

If one was bent on killing a planeload of people for terroristic purposes or to aquire 47 virgins, couldn't they just detonate their bomb at the security checkpoint?

I like this plan better, (I am sure this is a Bullshit email, but....)

FINALLY *- A great alternative to body scanners at airports . . .


The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates
the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners at the airports.

It's a booth you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will
detonate any explosive device you may have on you. They see this as a
win-win for everyone, with none of the issues about racial profiling.

It also would eliminate the costs of a long and expensive trial.

Justice would be swift. Case closed!

You're in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly
thereafter an announcement comes over the PA system . . . "Attention
standby passengers - we now have a seat available on flight number XXXX.
Shalom!"

Hats off to the Israelis!!!!

There are a lot of ways to erase a bunch of people but I don't like giving this garbage any ideas.

They don't need our ideas. I'm sure they thought of this one already. Hell Tom Clancy gave them the idea for 9/11 in his book Debt of Honor (1994)

A secret cabal of extreme nationalists gains control of Japan (having acquired some nuclear weapons), and start a war with the U.S. Ryan, now National Security Advisor, and Clark and Chavez, agents in Japan, help win the war. The Vice President resigns in a scandal, and the President appoints Ryan to replace him. A vengeful, die-hard Japanese airline pilot then crashes a jetliner into the U.S. Capitol during a joint session of Congress attended by most senior U.S. government leaders, including the President. Ryan thus becomes the new President through succession.
Please don't dent the planet.

That wouldn't generate the drama that blowing up an airplane in flight would.

If in flight is a prerequisite, how about a rocket launched grenade as the plane is low and slow on final?

You wouldn't even have to enter the airport nor subject Yusef to body scanners or groping.

Extremely inaccurate at that height and speed of the landing plane.
Trust me, nothing in these forums are "giving the terrorists ideas." This is something I tell my students: " Okay, you have a society who has the x-box, Wii, and other pre-made adventure along with reality tv. . .And over here, you have a culture that has a lot of sand a few palm trees, maybe some mountains and mono-colored housing. Who between this group has more exercise with imagination?" Of course, this leading question makes them realize how exceptionally bright these third-world peope really are.

Maybe the new Modernized term should be, "Thinking outside the XBox"?;)

I was in a room full of pilots when one of them came in with a cup of coffee and said "hey, a seven-three just flew into the World Trade Center" (it was a seven-six, but that was not known at the time).

"No foolin'?"

All of us went into the break room and watched on teevee while another plane hit the other tower.

I said "you know, I am beginning to suspect that this was not an accident."

One of the secretaries said "who would do such a thing?"

I said "it looks like bin Laden has been reading Clancy."

"Who's bin Laden?"

"You'll hear."

It is a pity that the people on our side were so averse to reading. We thus responded with brute force and ignorance, using an approach that has been tried repeatedly throughout recorded history with uniformly negative results.

To quote Rocket J. Squirrel, "that trick never works."

Had we responded with wit and finesse to the attacks, the world would be a very different place today.

One of the drawbacks to Democracy is the tendency to elect candidates drawn from the lowest common denominator of the populus. Capitol Hill, and Washington D.C. in general, is thus a veritable wellspring of mediocrity, and an intellectual black hole. Any brilliant, elegant idea that finds itself there is doomed to die of loneliness and neglect.

We have been running on sheer momentum for the past few decades, and what you see now is the result of reaching the limit of our resources - and credit.

It has been fun while it lasted.

What kind of freak thinks that the TSA get off on seeing them?

If anything the TSA should be complaining about seeing 300 pound naked peopleB|. Plus I am pretty sure that there is very little appealing about human genitals crammed into clothing[:/]. Unless people are running around airports with butt plugs in (and then they deserve the embarrassment!) I don't really see a problem.

The bigger issue is that your pockets have to be "truly" empty with no paper or fragments.

If I had the guts I would put a reflective sticker under my clothes like a car bumper sticker - maybe with the words "If you are a hot chick and like what you see call 123...":o

A better question might be "what kind of freak gets off on seeing passengers in the nude?"

Unfortunately they do exist.



Really?I am pretty sure that a grainy black and white image is hardly attractive and so unless it is a power trip thing it is difficult to see the appeal.

Well, given that the market for porn has always been really strong - even when the best they had were grainy daguerreotypes - apparently some people do find them attractive.

But that's sort of beside the point. Some people get off on seeing 'private' stuff. They're called voyeurs, and will often go to great lengths to get even poor pictures of someone's bedroom, bathroom etc. To such people, the fact that the person is either unaware they are being seen, or are powerless to stop it, is the big attraction.

sure point taken. So where do you stand on the issue?
