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 this crap about racial profiling.
It also would eliminate the costs of a long and expensive trial.
Justice would be swift.
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 1234. Shalom!"
Hats off to the Israelis!!!!
Finally, someone had the right solution.
As a frequent flyer, every week in and out of airports this would be the ideal solution!
The new scanners suck! For those of us who cannot lift our arms over our head, have metal in our body, or other / additional disabilities that prevent us from going through the scanners easily believe me these new lovelies are really hard. If you say to TSA I cannot do what you are asking they perform their nice pat down, it isn't pleasant. If you aren't obviously disabled they challenge your statements of disability (I carry a medical statement).
Really, this one would work out just fine for me!
Ralph: yer the man! Take a bow! You and the Israeli's
Funny as Heck and I would be all for it!
Unless we are talking about agents that need to be combined to actually be explosive. - That's my hubby being reasonable again!
If this is really true...I love it...Only my people...would come up with such a practical device.
Hey Ralph Deeds love your joke as well, and let me add not only is a seat now available, but a meal plan too!
Does it record a video of the event? It would make a great youtube video "Pranks gone wrong".
oh that's beautiful!!!!!! aaaahahahhahahahaahhahahahahahahahhahahahahahaha
Finally, I can complement Ron on something! Well done, good sir! I hope you don't mind, I saved the image and am planning to use it frequently. Do you know who drew it?
Brilliant. Even if they don't have it, they should do everything possible to convince people they do.
that's pricless!! thanks for the good laugh, and not a bad idea either, swift justice, i love it!!
this is nonsense. I happen to recall that people could have blown up airplanes or crashed them into buildings since the days of the wright brothers.
... but it hardly ever happened.
I also recall that someone could easily just hide somewhere with a rifle and just start picking people off. Among countless other horrible things that people could do.
Why are we giving our government the power to rape us for our safety?
but I loved being patted down, especially by all those sexy security guards... I really need a new prescription for my glasses.

Are Airport Body Scanners really necessary? Apparently not, because on 24 November 2010, the designated National Opt-Out day, the TSA simply switched them off to avoid embarassment and media attention, at airports all around the USA and let travellers go through without any body scans or pat downs....
