dervish16108: We live in a highly farked-up country where not enough people have a problem with the government scanning hundreds of millions of traveling bodies with impunity in the name of safety, but far too many would scream bloody murder if it were even proposed that the government support scanning all our citizens every year for medical purposes.


Woa there bub, that sounds a lot like universal healthcare.

MJMaloney187: Good. This is a good technology.


Depends on the application.

My company also develops photonics and spectroscopic instruments. Went to the moon. Went to Mars. I'm pleased that our upper muckety-mucks have no interest in this sort of thing. Using technology for discovery, education and improving life's quality is always a good thing. Using it to pad the pockets of government contractors (there's over 30,000 of them these days) - not so much.

Photonics and general spectroscopy can be used in so many ways - telling if fruit is ripe, if wine grapes are suitable, if cancer cells exist in tissue, lifespan of certain biological subjects, if there is lead in paint samples or other subjects, sweetness or tartness of food subjects, etc., etc..

There's plenty of money to be made doing cool shiat. This shiat here is rather creepy and you taxpayers will end up footing the bill.

A resounding 'feh'.

MassAsster: this shyt again? didn't we do this?


It's what we do. We recycle the same handful of discussions over and over.

* The merits of one religion over others
* Which beer is best
* Children are annoying on airplanes and should be sedated at all times.
* Bicyclists are douchebags. No wait, drivers are.
* Barack Obama is a terrible/awesome president
* Sarah Jessica Parker has sharp knees and horse teeth
* etc...
