AIRPORT SCANNERS...


10 airports are installing body-scanning devices to randomly scan passengers for explosives etc. OK so the random scanning will be used for suspected terrorists? Uh-huh. And monkeys may fly out of my butt. Does this scanner invade my right to private parts? It does blur the face of the hot babe or dude when they are scanned so anonymity prevails, but something tells me its not the face the scanners are interested in. Oh I know its dangerous materials being brought onto a plane. But FYI, you can only be scanned with your consent. You can decline, but you will get a pat down. If you aren't looked at naked then they can feel you up! WOOHOO! party at the airport. I'm in.

everybody's just gone plain nutsy! the money used to fashion and buy these scanners could have paid salaries for the hundreds of employees that airports have laid off since 9/11. *sigh* we live in a crazy world.

they want to look at this body naked? have at it. (trust me, it would scare their hair white! lol)

Sandi said...

So, would those pre-flight monkeys in your butt show up on this scanner?!?!? Frankly, I'm horrified by the whole thing. And the article also cleverly mentioned that the scanners can't see through some plastics and rubber so a person could fashion a fake rubber body covering and have the weapons below that! Yeah, I feel more secure.

Maria, I agree and from the sounds of Sandi's comment, there is a way around this too. Hopefully it will be worth it for the peeps who provide some peeps...haha :)N

BA...I doubt that...they'd be "hey she looks dangerous let's scan her" mmmhmmm the object of airport security perv lust. Is what I want in life. :)N


Sandi, I laughed out loud to your scanner picking out the monkeys out of my butt...that is a whole new level we could take the conversation isn't it. What kinds of things are stashed in the nooks and crannies of our bods. ewww. I like the way your mind thinks. there goes my mind floating passed yours in the gutter...love it. :)N

Karen said...

I thought repubs LOVE tight homeland security!!!

Nikki said...

Coby I cracked up because the TSA, my little gutter mind did the T and A...call the vet I'm a sick puppy. It was a good laugh. And who knew airport security could be speed dating?! thanks for the comment...:)N

Karen, I think its a little unnerving, but who am I to not show myself. Maybe I should be offended if I don't get picked to do the scan...over aged women discrimination! :)N

Patti, we do, but ya know a little privacy for the private parts seems like good sense and well ya know constitutional...the right to remain clothed. let's add it! :)N

Thinking Sage said...

I couldn't read the whole post.
My mind hung up on the monkeys flying outta your butt!

DB said...

But this makes us safer, right? This prevents terrorists from getting onto the planes...wow, not even the conservatives are buying it anymore lol.

Khaki Elephant said...

I just don't see the need. I mean, they already ask us if we packed our own bags, that should be enough to stop any would-be terrorist.

Of course, I would be all for this if they threw the scanning images up on a plasma screen at the gates. It would sure help me to better handle the hours I spend in airports if I could watch live nudie scans.

Nikki said...

Sage, read the rest dude you'll love it. I know monkeys flying out of butts is not a pretty sight...but it gets the point across, no? :)N

DB, I am buying into it, just letting the gutter mind rule the posts. haha. Actually it will probably be good if the scanners can focus and yes racially profile arabs...THAT I am for. Oh and maybe strange loner white males. scan them too. But ya know porno dude is gonna scan who his is gonna scan. lol :)N

Khaki, traveling just got better huh? be careful an do what mama told ya, where some clean underwear! :)N
