    Privacy: No More?

    Would you consent to having nude pictures of yourself taken in a very public place, with a stranger looking at them?
    Like it or not, you may have to now...

    Body-scanning machines that show images of people underneath their clothing are being installed in 10 of the nation's busiest airports in one of the biggest public uses of security devices that reveal intimate body parts.

    Don't you mean invasion of privates?

    I guess the terrorists will now have to use the 11th. busiest?

    So hows the machine meant to detect those foreign objects hidden inside the body?

    No need for consent. This is the 21st century. Apparently the scanners utilize harmless "millimeter waves" to do the job. Safe as milk, you won't get cooked.

    I knew I didn't have any privacy anyway > mail, phone, 'net, but going through an airport I'm gonna get photo'd nude?

    Of course all they would have to do is follow me to the beach anyway so I guess it's a non issue.
