BEFORE YOU GET THE THREAD, READ THIS.... the thread below is not an endorsement of terrorism, or acts that create or spread fear. It is not, repeat
NOT, a suggestion of any kind that you should do anything that would create fear, or terror. Never, ever cause harm or loss to another human being -
aside from being very wrong, you will probably spend a lot of time in PRISON! DO NOT DO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING.
I have been looking at this topic for some time now, and when the "bomber" was first shown on the news, I immediately thought about the
I told my other half that the reaction of the Government, here in the UK, would be such that the "body scanners" would be immediately rolled out
across the UK.
Now I was reading a thread on this site earlier and was stunned by this quote:

In my opinion the big deal is the person behind the screen looking at the images of naked men, women, and CHILDREN. I would be worried about
pedophiles and other sexual predators looking in on these pictures. I wouldn't mind someone seeing me naked personally because you're right we all
have naked bodies but there are some serious ethical concerns about how these devices. Then again I am all for protecting planes from terrorism. I fly
to and from NYC to Moscow 5 times a year and am personally happy to know that steps have been taken to absolutely 100% assure noone can board a plane
with anything dangerous.
I fly from London to New York on a regular basis, and I can assure one and all that these scanners do absolutely nothing to assure safety of aeroplane
Why? Well, here's a list:
1) If you want to genuinely cause terror on a flight, take a Bic Biro on board. Snap it in half and then jab the sharpened tube into someone's
juggular. A fellow passenger bleeding out and passing away mid-flight will create mayhem, and a lot of mess. Certainly enough time and mayhem to give
you opportunity to do a number of terrorist activities.
2) Board the flight with a friend and whilst in filght, become "ill". This can often draw the attention of several of the flight crew, and give your
friend time to slip off to the galley, crew areas, etc. to get up to all maner of things.
3) Cause a serious problem mid-flight by opening one of the doors to the aircraft. If the aircraft is high enough, it could cause explosive
decompression, and bring the plane down. You're going to die too, but it would certainly be terrorism.
4) Get yourself a rocket propelled grenade launcher, or a surface-to-air missile launcher, and then sit at the end of your chosen runway in a safari
Land Rover, or Jeep, and then wait for an aeroplane to take off. In mid-takeoff, fire your missile, and then drive away very, very quickly. This would
guarantee terror, mayhem, fear, and death. Probably your own if you are underneath the flightpath when the debris starts to rain down.
These are just a few of the options open to a would-be terrorist. A terrorist that would proably be dead very quickly after starting their actions,
but they would certainly have passed all security checks. Unless of course they look like a standard terrorist, that has a big beard, a head covering,
speaks Arabic, and looks "shifty".
Please remember ladies and gentlemen, that this thread is for discussion only, and that this information is NOT, repeat "NOT", to be used to put
into practice in the real world. Never, ever cause harm or loss to another human being... it's that simple.
Any thoughts on any of this?
