    Say cheese! Tulsa airport starts screening with full body scanners

    by Scott Carmichael Feb 20th 2009 @ 10:30AM
    [​IMG]It was only a matter of time - the first airport in the nation has switched to full body scanners as a replacement for the usual metal detector at the checkpoint.

    The scanners use electromagnetic waves to create an image of you - sans clothes. The image is viewed by a TSA agent in a nearby room, which should at least mean you don't hear their chuckles as you pass through the scanner.

    A TSA screener who operates the machine reported that the images "are not pornographic at all", and that she merely sees them as "a thing that could have something on it".

    But make no mistake - the 3D images will show all your parts to the screener, right down to the size of your breasts and genitals.

    The trial aims to determine whether the full body scanners can be a true replacement for metal detectors, and whether the use of the scanners increases, or decreases efficiency at the checkpoint.

    During the first day of operation, only 2 out of 1039 passengers declined to use the scanner. Of course, this could simply be because the general public is not fully aware what these new machines are, and just what the images reveal.

    Personally I don't really care what they see, I'm in favor of anything that will help me get from one end of the checkpoint to the next as fast as possible. If this technology is what it takes, then I'm all for it.

    After Tulsa, the next airports scheduled to receive the new scanning technology are San Francisco, Miami, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City and Albuquerque.

    yeah, theyre coming alrite...

    movies play a big role in our society by setting precedent for shit like this. when we see it in a movie, we're not as likely to complan about it 20 years down the line. can you say total recall?


  4. For many years I have worked with what people generally call "privacy concerning" information whether that was financial info, health history or physical features.

    Yes I have chuckled a few times but that was only during the first short while on those jobs...after that the info becomes just like anything else you have gotten used to.

    I rather fly to my point of destination in a safe way and not have the plane blown up under me and I really couldn't care less about if the screener thinks my balls are the size of watermelons or the size of a pea...;)
  5. Hope and Change!
  6. got something to hide??
  7. 9/11 Happened as an inside job, when you think about it, nobody is safe on a plane anywhere, anytime.

    Who is to say they make sure you are unarmed so you cant fight back?
  8. Well, in that case there's no point in using logic with any of you

  9. i agree, or at least i dont buy the official explanation. i know, im a fool.
  10. Sorry if I make some people mad, but I am a conspiracy theorist that believes 9/11 was an inside job with over 33 billion profit.
  11. WOW.

    This is REALLY fucked up.

    What ever happened to privacy?
  12. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but some day........when you're least expecting it, the government is going to find you and scan the shit out of your balls.
  13. Yeah the Iraq War certainly helped boost the American economy..
  14. it went away when the terrorists got here.
  15. incidentally, whats the fucking point in making us wear clothes if they're just going to scan us anyway.
  16. maybe not, but its making a lot of money for a lot of people.
  17. Except for the government and the economy.

  18. everyone in the government seems to be doing fine to me. the innauguration organizers certainly didnt seem to be strapped for cash.
  19. Yeah it's hard to run out of cash when you can keep creating it.
  20. agreed.
