Well I suppose that's ok as long as you feel safe getting on a plane, and then 6 months later your dick drops off!
TSA Security Laboratory Director Susan Hallowell recently announced the agency's intent to use back-scatter X-ray machines for passenger
surveillance. These hugely expensive, closet-sized zappers can find the plastic bombs hidden in grandma's underpants, while delivering a smacking
dose of ionizing radiation to her breasts and thyroid gland.
Snooper X-rays penetrate a few centimeters into the flesh and reflect off the skin to form a naked body image for TSA security personnel to inspect.
These machines are already being field tested at several U.S. airports, including JFK, LAX and Orlando.2
