Thinking outside the Box...

    Here's a solution to all the controversy over full-body scanners at the airports.

        Have a booth that you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on your body.
        It would be a win-win for everyone, and there would be none of this crap about racial profiling. This method would eliminate a long and expensive trial.  Justice would be quick and swift.  Case closed!
        I can see it now: 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..."
        Works for me!

    That's a great solution. Two months ago when traveling with my son, we had such a horrible screening process. The security guy at the metal detector was a bully to everyone going through. The system in place right now makes traveling by plane so much more difficult than in the past.

    To be honest, I don't think that is really all that bad of an idea, although from a technical standpoint it probably wouldn't be possible.

    I have been lucky enough to not have to travel through one and will probably look towards alternate forms of transportation...

    I don't have a problem with that, although the cleaning staff might.

    Brilliant!  It would make the screening process so much quicker.  Last time I flew the security team tried to dismantle the metal heels of my motorbike boots and I was hand frisked twice.  I would have been happy to step in the box and prove that I was not a security risk.  (In the UK, there are plenty of people who would be happy to work as cleaners in the 'Blow up Booth'.)

      I prefer the term Boom Box!
