CHICAGO – A would-be terrorist tries to board a plane, bent on mass murder. As he walks through a security checkpoint, fidgeting and glancing around, a network of high-tech machines analyzes his body language and reads his mind.
Screeners pull him aside.
Tragedy is averted.

Just fill your mind with noise and shouting "read it bitch!! read my mind!! you looooove it!!"
Then follow that up with really graphic sexual imagery and some loops of old cartoons.

Don't worry, nobody can be prosecuted unless they are actually carrying an explosive device, so think happy thoughts or get ready for the strip & cavity search. Thoughts alone can be enough for someone to violate your rights for 5 mins but that's all! I'm sure everyone will be dying for this system to protect them from terrorism by the time Al-Qaeda carry out their next 9/11, probably on 1/22 this year.

The potential for abuse is staggering. Imagine that you get tagged by the computer, and the next thing you know you’re dragged off and treated like you were about to blow up an airplane. The only evidence against you would be that a computer deemed that you had some sort of undefined “hostile intent”. The fact that you did nothing wrong wouldn’t stop you from being detained, interrogated, and harassed. Missing your flight home will be the least of your worries! Some people are becoming more frightened by the governments secretive and vague “war on terror” than they are of terrorist attacks.

What's the big deal? We all have brains. I don't understand why people are so ashamed and uncomfortable about their naked brain.
If some TSA worker gets off on checking out my sexy brain, big whoop.
I think it is just people with flabby, out of shape brains and men with tiny cerebellums who are making all the fuss.
