It may not necessarily make you a cent, but I hope you all opt for the pat-down rather than the x-ray, every time.
This reason is twofold:
- Your health. I'm sure I don't have to tell you it's dangerous. You can also add "nekkid pictures noooooo" but I think that's a pretty small
deal compared to the health problem, which is pretty serious, by the looks of it, despite their aggressive propaganda otherwise. Eventually, I
believe, if not shut down for other reasons, the health data will leak out and they'll be removed for this reason. Don't be a guinea pig in the
- But why wait for all those people to get sick? The pat-down really slows the process down and costs more manpower. Great, legal ways to fight
corrupt systems is by interacting with them in a way that wastes more of their time and/or money. It adds up with each person who does it to them. If
it ends up costing so much, suddenly they may not need to 'protect' you with such fervor. And, if they get backlogs at the airports because of line
ups for the patdowns, with nobody wanting to be labrats for the cancer pr0n photos...the effect is even faster! If their AWESOME protocol is making
air travel unfeasible, watch how fast it disappears!
I tend to avoid traveling through the US as much as possible, but when I did, I opted for the pat-down. It was kind of like a really lame shiatsu
massage. I've read some people feel a little more molested, but personally I found it mildly massaging (good thing I didn't have to pay for it
though, not enough effort to be much of a massage) and slightly amusing also. Molestation was not a part of the experience. But I don't like the
whole police state vibe and I don't like to take off my shoes and walk on that nasty carpet, so I'll just get a proper massage instead.
