Im sure Chassidim who go to Mikvah everyday will have no problem being scanned

I do.

It's not the fact that someone will see me nekked. I don't care about that and would walk through security nekked as far as I'm concerned. It's the blatant invasion of privacy and draconian security measures that contribute very little to actual security that offend me. No one should FORCE me to strip or be fondled for ANY reason, let alone simply to get on a plane...

I flew to Chicago - It was normal on the way there but I had the backscatter on my return. So did everyone going through security. The TSA agent held me up after I went through and then asked me for a bribe. He was kidding, but he slowed the line, scared me a bit, and joking is really inappropriate. I doubt a bomb joke from me would have been as easily tolerated.

My traveling companion was furious and wanted to get the guy's badge, but I didn't want to start trouble and our flight was leaving in 35 minutes (hour long wait on the security line) so I wanted to get to the gate.

That is horrible!

But won't they find the drugs?


Not if its shoved up his anal cavity... :blink:

Can't wait till some brilliant terrorist blows his butt to kingdom come, then the TSA will preform random cavity searches on nuns and 2 year ols... =@

FINALLY ó A great alternative to body . . .scanners at the airports.

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

Itís 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 B.S. about racial profiling.

After you hear a muffled explosion, an announcement comes over the PA system....
"Attention standby passengers, we now have a seat available on flight #1818.


It would eliminate the cost of a long and expensive trial. Justice would be swift.

I just flew through JFK, LAX and las vegas airport, in LAX the backscatters were operational, but we weren't asked to go through.
Besides the fact that its stupid and useless, I don't see why people make such a big deal about it. If it actually helped security, I wouldn't care if some nameless faceless person in some place I can't see, sees me naked.....

I've noticed that TSA agents have been very polite in the face of all the opposition, the ones that directly deal with passengers. Kudos for keeping their cool:

Sometimes I wonder why some elites work so hard in an unethical manner to gain wealth and power: they can't take any of their wealth and power with them when they die. Philosophically looking at it, if there is a G-d, they will have an eternity of suffering to pay for their crimes against humanity. And if there is no G-d, then once they die, they will have no memories and conscious awareness of their success in life because their consciousness and memories are lost for eternity, becoming nothing more than dirt in the ground. So, these elites in the end lose either way. The 100 years of life living like a king is just a drop of water in the infinite ocean of time that they will experience suffering at the hands of G-d, or not experience in a state of non-existence.

They worried about your kippa? You could hide an AK-47 and a thirty-foot boa constrictor in that beard of yours, and they worried about you kippa?

Since we all (or at least I did) heard stories about the Jewish man who was forced to walk between two lines of thugs with clubs and when he discovered that his kippa fell off voluntarily turned around to pick it up, getting extra beatings along the way, obviously what a person should do given the choice between taking off his kippah and being patted down is to ...

I left my water in my carryon in LHR. Got a real yelling for that -- the security guy just couldn't believe it was a mistake.
