Controversial nude body scanners used at U.S. airports have come under fire again – after a blogger claimed he could easily smuggle explosives through them onto a plane.
Engineer Jonathan Corbett has published a video where he shows how he took a small metal case through two of the TSA’s $1 billion fleet in a special side pocket stitched into his shirt.
This is because, he suggests, the scanners blend metallic areas into the dark background – so if an object is not directly placed on the body, it will not show up on the scan.
The metallic box, he claims, would have set off an alarm had he passed through the old detecting system.
His revelation comes just weeks after Europe banned the ‘airport strip-searches’ over fears the X-ray technology could cause cancer.
So next time you’re at the Airport, you’ll have the confidence to know that the TSA has your back…. 🙂
POLITICALLY CORRECT THOUGHT POLICE UPDATE
2 years ago there was a firestorm about wearing a US flag shirt on Cinco De Mayo (hint: it’s “racist”) so now we have a new “racially insensitive” chant:
“USA! USA! USA!”
Yes, I said “USA!” is a racist chant when the other team is predominately Hispanic and you’re not and you win. OMG!!!!! The HORROR!!
SAN ANTONIO – A local school district is apologizing after an apparent incident of racism at a boys high school basketball game this past weekend.
When the final whistle blew Saturday, Alamo Heights celebrated a convincing victory over San Antonio Edison.
Alamo Heights Head Coach Andrew Brewer said he was proud of his team.
“Tremendously proud,” Brewer said. “Tremendously. It’s the best group of kids.”
But it was just after the trophy presentation when the coach was not proud of the chant coming from Alamo Heights fans.
“USA, USA, USA,” they chanted.
San Antonio Independent School District officials took the chant as a racial insult to a school with all minority players from a school with mostly white ones.
Statement by School:
USA! USA! USA!
Oooh!, I think that’s them at the door… 🙂
