Now I know “Why do some people have problems with Full Body Scanner?problems with Full Body Scanner?”

I had been criticized  for my stand on  Why do some people have problems with Full Body Scanner?

Well,I still stand by what I said,go ahead and brand me regressive..

Screener Rolando Negrin’s private body parts were observed by his Transportation Security Administration colleagues conducting training on the airport’s full-body imaging machines.

A year of joking culminated on Tuesday night, when Negrin attacked the co-worker at an employee parking lot, according to an arrest report.

Negrin “stated he could not take the jokes any more and lost his mind,” said the report, made public Thursday. He is charged with aggravated battery.[……….]

I don’t know..Further reading on full body scanners tells me that full body scanners are good for security reasons,but are totally wrong on the health and privacy side..These machines are not capable of checking body cavities and moroever it would be hilarious to believe that this is the ultimate solution for terrorism.

The full body scanners that President Obama last night authorized to be rolled out in airports across the country at a cost of over $1 billion dollars not only produce detailed pictures of your genitals, but once inverted some of those images also display your naked body in full living color.

And you don’t need to be a graphics wizard using a $600 software suite like Photoshop to pull off the trick – inverting a photo is a simple process that takes one click and is an option available even in the most basic image editing software.[……………]

Manufactures and promoters of this wonderful innovative idea says that  these “digital strip search” machines are incapable of saving, storing or transmitting the images they take.

But secret documents uncovered by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (www.EPIC.org) have revealed that these machines do indeed posses precisely such capabilities. According to TSA specification requirement documents that have been uncovered by the EPIC, all full-body scanners purchased by the TSA must have the ability to both save and transmit the scanned images of air passengers.

The documents were obtained by EPIC through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. They have also been shared with CNN, which has viewed the documents and published a story about what they reveal.
These documents contradict the claims of the TSA, which include the statement that “the system has no way to save, transmit or print the image.”

In India ,Women give airport body scanner a miss .Now you know why I don’t answer to comments “Why are you so bothered about something happening somewhere in the world..”

It is HERE AND NOW…


I guess this is what they call modern-age technology,making things easier,for a class of society alone.. Will Mrs Prathiba Patil,Mrs Sonia Gandhi, Dr Manmohan Singh ,Mrs Priyanka,Mrs Sushama Swaraj,Mrs Vrinda Karat , Mr Advani and everybody in this country going through the scanner,irrespective of power,caste and class?If yes,I have no issues..If not,why should I then agree?

  1. What happens in another country is of paramount importance for several reasons. One, we’re all human beings and I’m very much part of the human race. Countries are artificial man made distinctions and in many cases there’s no practical difference between two human beings of different nationalities.

    Second, you know the old poem. Something about first they came for X1 and I kept quiet. Then they came for X2, X3 etc. And finally when they came for me, there was no one left to stand up for me. What happens in one place in the world can easily infiltrate into other portions with frightening speed.

  2. “Now you know why I don’t answer to comments “Why are you so bothered about something happening somewhere in the world..””

    It is not always like this, I remember that Madam asking me why I am bothered about what is being taught in some schools abroad.

    I remember the last question put to me very well, It is like “have we solved all our problems in our country?”

    Actually what Madam keeps here is not related to countries, it is simply related to one community (I am not going to name it).

    Now about the body scanners, it is good to blame terrorists and their ideology rather than authorities. There have been more than intelligence reports that suggest some kind of explosives are being surgically implanted in to bodies so that they can blow themselves in mid air.

    If any one with slight knowledge about avionics will know that one does not need powerful blast to bring down a plane. Just a small explosion is needed to increase air pressure to a certain point which can not be handled by plane’s design.

    That is why we have these precautions.
    Yeah no one likes these, but our times are bad and I am afraid it only gets worse.

  3. I always not favorable to this full body scanner as there are lot of things being misused with the kind of technology involved in it 😦

    Your first picture in the gallery (the good looking woman) is a fake, you shouldn’t be able to see the hair and no clothes bite her skin like in the others real pics. The image came from a nude reference for art purpose.
    As for me, I don’t have anything full body scanner and it’s better than being touched by a guard (I don’t like being touch be strangers). We should grow up a bit, being that naked is no big deal for men or women and the religious excuse is as childish as it is stupid. Tough when they will make obligatory cavity search for everybody, I will say no.
