You can avoid full-body scans in airports by queuing after pretty girls

November 13, 2010 · 12 comments

You have probably heard that many people protest against full-body airport scanners because the latter invade their privacy. Their doubts are quite legit. This image below, for example, shows how a scanner image looks like after a simple color inversion. It exposes the body completely.

On a positive note, a clever redditor has found a way to avoid full-body scanning by simply queuing after a couple of pretty girls:

Really simple. Stand in line behind the hottest women you can find…they will always get pulled and you get to move to the metal detector. I did this yesterday at PVD. Saw two gorgeous 20yr olds, so I moved into there line. Both of them were complaining to each other that they thought it was strange they always have to go thru them – and like clockwork they got pulled – had to strip down to their tshirts…and went in the machine…since that was busy they directed me without a thought to the metal detectors. I’ve been watching this on FB & thought it was much to do about nothing -I was wrong Reddit & I apologize…this whole TSA thing is complete bullshit.

Body scanners can show incredible detail but please stop using the above photos as examples. They're not real body scanner images.

This is discrimination and exploitation against attractive females if it's true.
I hope it's not and you were just trying to be funny.

When asked to go through a body scan you don’t have to. You can always ask for a private screening and get a pat down instead…Also many times it is hard for the people reviewing the images to tell if the person is male or female. That is why they have somebody telling the people in the room the biological sex of the person.

Half of you are brain dead. The kiddie porn scanners can tell if you are circumcised or not. The TSA has a whole list of scripted whoppers they tell, one of them being the kiddie-porn scanners can’t record and save images, but a lawsuit by the Electronic Privacy Foundation has the TSA coughing up documents showing they can record and transmit.

In that same lawsuit, the TSA goons have testified they think they have the power to strip search nude everyone. And low and behold, former Homeland Insecurity head Chetoff is a paid lobbyist for the porn scanner companies, who spend millions lobbying congress to not oppose the governments attempt sot take porn pix of your underage children, even as TSa admits that their porn scanners often don’t find guns, and would not have stopped the underwear bomber, nor would they stop Al Qaeda who has successfully used rectum bombs.

Anyone who is ok with porn scanners and kiddie porn and thinks it will make them safer is a mindless walking dupe.

All of you that complain about aiport secruirty scanners: Grow some balls. Their kinda there for a reason. Personally, id rather go through a scanner and not be shot or stabbed on my flight. I mean seriously people, Grow the F$%K up.

I’m sorry to say this, but people like you are a large part of the problem. The scanners are not saving you from being shot or stabbed on your flight. __Read__ about this. __Learn__ about this. And stop insulting those of us who do.
