  • Body scanners

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

    Develop an enclosed booth that passengers step into but , instead of
    X-raying them, when the door closes, it will detonate any explosive device
    they have hidden on or in their body.

    The explosion will be contained within the sealed booth. This would be
    a win-win for everyone!
    There would be no more concern about racial profiling.
    The booth could be use as a casket for direct burial
    A new booth could be put in place in just seconds
    The booth would eliminate long, expensive trials.
    Only the guilty would suffer. No chance of mistaken identity
    You're in the airport and you hear a muffled explosion, followed by an
    announcement over the PA system, "Attention standby passengers,
    we now have a seat available on flight number......

    What's not to like? Brilliant. :whome:

    You've got my vote...
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.

          It would take an engineer to see the flaw. Take 3 people, 3 different set of chemicals, each inert by itself but combined to make boom.

            Being an engineer I couldn't help my self: the system could be refined by using an 8" thick HY180 barbette type armored ring with an integrated domed armor overhead and deck - provided with a tall one meter diameter pressure relief chimney with fragmentation gratings in the pressure vessel area and scrubbers further up, and an ultrasonic detonator apparatus, thereby removing xrays or other ionizing radiation, a computer could be provided with chemical trace analysis inputs, and an MRI scan of the target. then if explosive elements were discovered, it could deliver a measured frequency specific detonation pulse with ultra sound. Once the target had detonated, a scrubbing protocol could implement and liquefy the remains, flushing them into a holding tank for desiccation and incineration in batch loads, ultimately disposing of the small amount of sterile ash via the sanitary sewer system. The sparkling clean, sterile chamber would then be ready for the next subject, when nothing dangerous is found, the passenger would experience something akin to passing through a large airlock. Puffs of electro statically scrubbed vapor from the chimney and a dull thump would signal another terrorist had gone to N'har. No wasted burials or chamber consumption involved. Useful minerals could also be recovered and recycled from the terrorist slurry. Chemical detection systems could alert the system to the presence of multipart explosives and the necessary amounts of the other componnents could be introduced to expidite the process.

                  Not bad.
                  But what if a terrorists exchanges his bag or somehow manages to put the bomb in someone else's luggage?

                    Excellent point. In addition to that, what if a malfunction occurs. How many innocent people does it pop off before they shut it down???

                      The point is the bomb does not get aboard. Everything else is secondary. Yes, you're inconvienced but you're not drowning over a burnt pillow in the middle of the Atlantic ... and no, there is no consitutional right not to be sniffed by a dog. It's a dog. Dogs sniffed. Period.

                        Not to be gross here, but seriously, dogs are not cool sniffing women when they are having their "monthly." There will be confusion there, trust me.

                          Believe me. Unless you have nitrate on you, monthly or not, my dog will goto somewhere else where I will reward with a treat. Dogs can be trained to ignore scents as well as identify them.

                            I have to admit, the dog is better than a machine, and it can also bite the terrorist in the groin. 1000's of trained dogs and their handlers would create jobs, the dogs would of course be carefully handled by highly trained skilled workers. This could be combined with scanners and metal detectors along with better practices and procedures for intensive searches - including profiling. Most people would be more at ease with a dog sniffing them than they would be being groped, and those who wanted to opt out could accept a strip and cavity search at their own expense, by specially selected workers with big hands and long black rubber breeder's gloves - with the possibility of missing their flight as an added bonus.

                              And they're cheap. $30K to train a dog that would do better than a $mil machine.
