Here’s a solution to all the controversy over full-body scanners at the airports:
All we need to do is develop a booth that you can step into that will not X-ray you,
but will detonate any explosive device you may have hidden on or in your body.
The explosion will be contained within the sealed booth.
This would be a win-win for everyone.
There would be none of this crap about racial profiling and the device would eliminate long and expensive trials.
This is so simple that it’s brilliant. I can see it now: you’re in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion.
Shortly thereafter an announcement comes over the PA system, “Attention standby passengers, we now have a seat available on flight number…”

Sounds good to me, but it would get crowded with all of the people standing around waiting for the explosion. I agree with thefishingschool, Pete for head of airport security!!!!

Yeah, we could bet on whether the “Arab looking” guy blows up or not. And if you line the inside of the box with Tyvek, clean-up would be a snap!

Why is it the government doesn’t accept ideas from the common citizen? This sounds foolproof to me.

Jeez, A1Jim, that’s obvious! They just have a BIG drain hole in the floor to flush the bits down! Well, maybe a 6 HP garbage disposal with a good grinder for the bones…ew, I disgust myself sometimes.
