Airport Scanners . . .

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 you. It would be a win-win for everyone, and there would be none of this crap about profiling. This method would eliminate a long and expensive trial. Justice would be quick and swift. Case closed! This is so simple that it's brilliant. 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..."

(or perhaps: "Clean up on aisle 12?)
 
. . .  and just for the record, this is just a joke!  I saw another one of these emailed jokes being reported on the news as though the sender was totally serious about it . . . you've seen it, the one where "Michael Jackson was their favorite singer, and Farrah Fawcett was their favorite actress, and by the way, Obama is my favorite President."  
Reasonable people know this is just a joke...
 
I don't really think we should blow up people in the airport.  (Think of all the children that might be around.  Too traumatizing).  It's just that what we are doing is so benign and backwards, it makes people crazy, as in, if we don't laugh about it, we will cry ourselves to sleep . . .

Would be nice if there were a way to easily identify the crazies though, yeah?

I think it is funny though! Would serve them right - I mean they are on a death mission anyway no?

I actually don't mind the thought of the full body X-rays - A little "Exotica" is line is what we all need right? Ha Ha Just Kidding!!

I am completely unopposed to this kind of scanner. NO JOKE.

Create a special room where any and all messes can be contained.

It would be so simple really. And quite the deterrent wouldn't you say?

I say, give the people what they want:) If they want to blow themselves up, we should give them a safe place to do that. Win/win!

lmao, I love the detonation room idea. Sure, it'd be messy and traumatic if children saw it, but the bomb detonation room thingy could be solid, no window, and have one of those total room flushes like the public toilets in wherever those are.

Haha! Wish it were that easy to tell who wanted to harm us.
