The lexicon grows...

Farfugnugfluffernutter: A person that provides pleasurable assistance in achieving a state of arousal before crossing through a airport nudity scanner.

i.e In order to lose the shrinky wink and avoid public shaming, Hans sought the services of a Farfugnugfluffernutter before crossing through airport security.

Actually, a Farfugnugfluffernutter would be a peanut-butter-and-marshmallow-fluff sandwhich prepared while in an airport security line. You're looking for the simpler term "Farfugnugfluffer."

FTFA:with soundtrack provided by Muse's song "Uprising."

Wow, an actual appropriate use of a hit song. As opposed to shoving it in promos for V, when the same band has actual songs about alien invasion.

I see nothing about fluffers in TFA. And why is it for most things like this it's always 99% guys and 1 chick?

Why does the relatively attractive dark haired chick have 'nappy' written above her arse?

Give these Germans credit, at least they are protesting. While we Americans biatch in online forums and bend over willingly at airport security, they are giving the airport headaches at least.

I don't really give a damn if the see me or anyone else naked in a little screen while I go through the checkpoint. It's faster.

My wife and I have agreed that, if airport security tells us we need to go through a body scanner, we will shed every stitch of clothing then and there.

We are fully aware that we will risk becoming a Fark headline, but are prepared to take that chance.

Libre sans Laundry!

gambitsgirl: Pretty sure the TSA peoples don't wanna use that scanner on everyone if they had a choice


Yes, I'm sure they'd rather these two opted for the full body pat down......

I'm thinking this entire thing is going to go to shiat as soon as some prominent fundie is told his delicate christian wife needs to be digitally stripped or submit to a pat-down from a peasant.

FarkinNortherner: Why does the relatively attractive dark haired chick have 'nappy' written above her arse?


Option 1: Hee hee
Option 2: "Nappy" is another word for diaper

Not sure how much credit to give you.

As far as full-body scans go, I'm not moved by the loss of privacy since we're already subject to random pat-downs and strip-searches. I'd certainly rather my kids get scanned than patted down, if that's what air travel comes to. Maybe we can then leave our belts and jackets and babies' shoes on going through security. The image produced isn't some superman x-ray vision that renders the person naked, just a topographic representation of a human.

However, I do not want to have these expensive machines installed and maintained for the mere sake of "warm fuzzies." If they work, good, if they don't they shouldn't be installed.

I would also gladly strip to nothing if it allowed one to get on the plane faster.

He'll I'll even make a climatic finish at the end of the line so long as it gets me in faster.

That is a conundrum, because after all the Fundamentalist Christian vote is the base of the Neo-Conservative (i.e. take the fight to the terrorist) movement. For a "prominent fundie" to start railing against anti-terrorism methods, that would diminish the political clout that many of those upper-echelon preachers enjoy.

These same people wholeheartedly supported the Patriot Act, which made these machines possible.

They can't complain without having some snarky people *cough* like me saying they must have turned soft on the war on terror.

Better yet, when they run afoul of child pornography laws - or a few TSA agents turn into pedophiles. Just looking at them pictures all day long...

Yeah but most of what they advocate never affects them personally. Just wait until one of the high-functioning retards they hire to work security starts pawing his family.

Let's face it, none of these people give a crap about scanners, they just like to get naked in public.

See, now THAT is something you could really get litigious about.

Based on your profile, I'd say your problem will be turning down TSA employees who keep begging for a date.

On the bright side, you'd probably be able to get these people to carry your luggage to the plane for you.

Unless they put the kids in lascivous poses or have several of them in the scanner doing sexual things at once, that ain't happening. They're not pictures of naked people, they're 3-D scans. Similar to an ultrasound... looks sorta like a person but not really. Think "Dancing Baby" from Ally McBeal rather than Avatar-level realism.

Why do these assholes keep f*cking with the airlines? It is already enough of a pain because of Richard Reed to get through security!

Royale With Cheese: Fools. Those scanners will not detect rectally-smuggled explosives.


People keep bringing this up (and I'll give you credit for sarcasm and wit) in the media, and they're actually serious. There is a certain level of dedication and unlikelihood that it just isn't worth trying to counteract.

Comfort yourselves thusly: for an explosive device to work, it has to have the right combination of chemicals and a trigger. One cannot carry, no matter how crazy, all the chemicals in their ass for fear of premature detonation. So already you're talking about multiple orifices which is even more complicated if you aren't a woman (as so few of these terrorists are). Then you have to have a trigger that somehow gets through security despite the fact that you're pretty much going to need metal in it to work. Then you have to extract, combine, and detonate all these without anyone tackling you and pounding your face in... which Americans now knowing that it is totally cool to do so have demonstrated that they're all about it!

All in all: very low likelihood of attempt, almost no chance of success.
