There is another alternative to the conventional approach to airport screening- one that guarantees a terrorist free environment, one that is quick and easy to implement and that would not require expensive metal detection equipment. The solution - require that the travelling public fly nude.

The Nudist Option to airline security would guarantee that all passengers would be free of any hidden weapons or other dangerous articles. However this approach has some obvious shortcomings. It might be labelled as a weapon of mass corruption.

Just a thought to enliven debate in this political environment.

Puts new meaning to "the friendly skies".

Also, if for some strange reason the metal detector did go off I would fear that they would have no choice but to...

Wont go there.

It would be awkward and the plane would smell like ass but I see what you're saying.

I will say no carryon items though.
If you see my post on hidden weapons, you might agree.

link you wanna be the guy stuck next to the sweaty 400lbs dude who breathes heavily thru his mouth the entire flight?

You'd be amazed how much one can conceal when nude. Back in a criminal justice class in college, a professor would tell us tales of working at a nearby prison where the medical staff would remove shanks, packs of cigarettes, drugs, bottles of alcohol, or all of the above from special "hiding places" on the male prisoners.

Even worse, there'd be no where to put your ticket.
