A new and useful alternative to body scanners at airports

Sometimes a little humour brightens up the day!

The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners at the airports.

It’s a booth you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on you. They see this as a win-win for everyone, with completely eliminating racial profiling and body scanning.

It also would save the costs of a long and expensive trial.  Justice would be swift. Case closed!

For example, imagine you’re in the Tel-Aviv 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 XXXX. Shalom!”

Under Britain’s Health and Safety rules, I guess we’d have to have notices warning passengers of the dangers of slipping on the blood on the floor.
