    This is crazy!

    A scanner which produces "naked" images of passengers has started a trial at Manchester Airport.

    The authorities say it will speed up security checks by quickly revealing any concealed weapons or explosives.

    But the full body scans will also show up breast enlargements, body piercings and a clear black-and-white outline of passengers' genitals.

    hmm I can find some good use for that :hubba: :ahee:


    On a serious note...I don't think that its crazy. No one would or should complain if they caught a terrorist.
    I hate people that complain about how the government does not give the public privacy and they are the same ones complaining the government does nothing to protect them!!

    Ahaha - rock out with your c**k out!

    In all seriousness though, I can understand the need for top-level security in the post-9/11 age; but how do we know for certain that these images would be instantly destroyed? With all the recent government discrepancies involving personal data, I wouldn't be too surprised to find them being permanently stored somewhere "for future reference".

    Big brother is watching you.

    And? I wouldn't trust someone with that kind of information. Too little trust in the big companies.

    Absolutely not! What is this country coming to! This is disgusting, a real invasion of our last privacies (BBC Have your say)

    The naked images aren't exactly going to turn anyone on are they? They're scans and not photos. Do doctors get turned on when doing X-Rays?
