While you may not like her, subby, and I don't care for her music either but she sells millions of albums.  Paris Hilton may have a better use for the headline.

She can sing.  My ears don't bleed when I hear her.  Black Umbrella is a work of art as a song and a video.

Sound waves? meh. You can have my golf ball/bomb detector when you can pry it from my cold, dead hands. Which should be Wednesday at the latest.

You know who else sold millions of albums?

/ the only reason she sells albums at this point is because she shakes her booty.

What's so hard about that?  "BOOOM!!!!"  "Guess that was a bomb."

Scary thing is, Paris Hilton sold nearly 200k albums herself. Not a bad total for a debut album by most people.

Can it detect bad movies, I've seen some bombs lately.

Have they figured out a way to keep her from sticking her tongue out?

/Other than a well-timed uppercut?

Wait, are we white knighting Miley now?

What a misleading article and headline.

They cause vibrations on a "package" and measure its response (how it vibrates).  Using this they can identify things like "this package is empty", or "this package has a liquid in it", or "this package vibrates slightly faster than another package we also tested".

It does absolutely jack shiat for detecting bombs, unless they're homemade bombs, because those are all made from identical materials and ratios and therefore the vibrations will all be identical.

What are you talking about?  Even if all bombs were completely identical to each other, this has no bearing on detecting bombs.  What matters is how similar the composition of bombs are to non-bombs.

I think Laser Vibrometer would make a good name for my Mike Oldfield cover band.

Though, wouldn't using the sound waves from Miley's album cause the bombs to explode? Use Rhianna's album and then they will disable themselves.

is that what they're calling "not jumping on the blind hate bandwagon" now?

Hana Montana Miley sells records because she had the weight of her father and Disney behind her, and has now the done the oh so original self reinvention as a sex kitten.

I've seen and heard her a few of her live performances on TV.  She's a lousy singer.

I saw the twerking video...it's the best live performance of anythingshe's done - coincidentally there was no singing.

/I'd bang it like a VBIED
