Guess what my part time job for the summer will be...
2002-02-20 01:17:17 AM  
if they could put this technology in sunglasses.....
2002-02-20 01:17:37 AM  
isn't this a repeat?
2002-02-20 01:18:37 AM  
I'm kind of torn on this. I'm sure there's one or two hot ones to ogle every day, but I'm not sure if they would make up for all the fuglies I would have to look at.

TIme to update the old resume..
2002-02-20 01:19:15 AM  
"..producing 3D, computer-generated , fully nude images of people who pass through the device."

Well, that sux0rs. I wants teh real boobies!!!1
2002-02-20 01:19:17 AM  
...getting my resume together.... sounds like a job perk to me....
2002-02-20 01:21:42 AM  
This seems like a great way to let terrorists through.Get a grotesquely fat person,run them through,and plant a bomb or knife while the guards are retching.
2002-02-20 01:23:49 AM  
What if Martha Stewart or Sally Jessee Raphael walked through one of those? Ewww....makes me want to puke thinking about it.

Makes me want to go rent "Airplane!"
2002-02-20 01:27:40 AM  
On a more serious note, shouldn't this be 'obvious' since the movie Total Recall first introduced it?

Airplane was the first movie to introduce this, not Total Recall.

If I worked there, I hope this girl would pass by... She's a Farker too!

SFW, btw.
2002-02-20 01:38:13 AM  
Wasn't that scene with the scanners from Airplane II?
2002-02-20 01:42:22 AM  
I have to agree Quick1 you'd have to look through literally thousands of fuglies, to get only a few eyefulls of the KarenX's in the world. Not to mention the dingleberries you'd be forced to look at, ewwww nasty.

TheBuriedLife you can usually find Karen in here
2002-02-20 01:44:22 AM  
You mean they can see me naked without buying my dinner first? Ugh, I guess chivalry is really dead.
2002-02-20 01:46:04 AM  
Pulsarcat: But, you're Canadian. I thought all Canadian women were strippers!
2002-02-20 01:48:57 AM  
I would like to see a picture of this "KarenX" who is so hot.

KarenX, and no I'm not gonna share her boobie pics with anyone.......
2002-02-20 01:56:35 AM  
Hey Pulsarcat...how 'bout dinner ;)
2002-02-20 02:03:21 AM  
"The fight against terrorism may be moving toward a clash with the right to privacy."

That line deserves its own "obvious" tag.
2002-02-20 02:06:32 AM  
I concur.......
2002-02-20 02:10:49 AM  
Wow JohndX, KarenX is a beautiful girl.
There are better pictures of her at her site, though.
2002-02-20 02:14:11 AM  
Yes, she is pretty, good personality too BTW :)

Fun loving too.

Ooops off topic, where am I?
2002-02-20 02:18:25 AM  
I remember reading a piece about a fat woman who was arrested for smuggling of some such thing. When the cops frisked her they found a bag of coke and a gun encased in the rolls of her fat. Don't know if it's urban legend, or what...read it in News of the Weird.

Anyway, I'm comfortable with my body, so if they want to see my buddha belly, so be it...
2002-02-20 02:19:52 AM  
And how long do you think it'll be until the videos appear on the net?

2002-02-20 02:42:22 AM  

Fellow FARK readers?

This story is over two and a half months old.

I submitted this to rotten_com/news after seeing it in a blurb on CNN (where they didn't blur out the male genitals, btw --- you could clearly see the demonstratee's package), and it was never accepted by rotten.

I even went so far as to include links to various websites where information on this could be found. As I recall, there weren't many, but I think I found at least three or four.

Sometimes, I just want to beat FARK readers and the 'mods who control the queue over the head with a hammer. *sigh*
2002-02-20 02:53:30 AM  
Awww, poor poor Dingleberry.

Hey, here's a solution: If you hate the readers so much, don't come here.
2002-02-20 02:57:23 AM  
Kickstart Hopefully soon, that way they could edit out all the fatties and dingleberries and leave the the sexy chicks in the videos. :)

2002-02-20 02:58:09 AM  
Stupid tags...:(
2002-02-20 03:05:14 AM  
um, does this means scanners get hazard pay?
2002-02-20 03:07:56 AM  
I can see it now:

2002-02-20 03:13:13 AM  
I am who I am..... most motherfarkas dont give a damn.

Awww, poor poor Dingleberry.

Hey, here's a solution: If you hate the readers so much, don't come here.

Wow! A flame by an idiot, and so early in the morning! Let me guess...you're on UK time?

I *never* said that I "hate the readers." Please don't put words into my mouth, thanks. For now, just allow yourself to be a moron, and simply go with the flow. Thanks!

an older popular mechanics article had pictures:

2002-02-20 03:38:02 AM  
That doesn't show the full anatomy, though. The demonstration I saw on CNN (in mid afternoon, no less)
clearly showed the entire genital region. It didn't
show any pubes, but maybe the guy who was modeling for
them had shaved, I dunno. I don't *want* to know. All
I'm saying, is take that, make it anatomically correct,
and that's what you have for the scanners in question.

At least in Total Recall they could only see your skeleton.

This does make me wonder, though...

If you went through an airport scanner that would allow the security to see you naked...would they arrest you for sporting a boner?

2002-02-20 03:57:19 AM  

If the pic from Unfletch is any indication, I pity those poor scanner operators!

Nice pic......

Like I said - Dingle your a fukin homo - shut the fuk up!

This is not a flamewar forum. If you don't like me pointing out the fact that you are a repressed homosexual, then don't post like one. This is the last response I will have to you on this subject. If you wish to correspond within this thread on the subject at hand, I will oblidge. But this is the last response I will have to you. You, sir, are an idiot.

shiat bringing stuff back from Amsterdam is gonna be real difficult now!!
2002-02-20 05:21:07 AM  
My girlfriend got groped up pretty good by some mulleted dyke on her way home from the Bahamas yesterday.

When she asked why they didn't look in the zippered compartments of her bag the trained monkeys just looked confused.

Interestingly enough, the two middle eastern men in front of her were waved right through. Let's hear it for political correctness gone out of control!
2002-02-20 06:25:26 AM  
EnemyFrank that wasn't political correctness. That was some skanky biatch ignoring her job to feel up a cute girl. I know a couple girls who do not want to fly because they got groped by security guards. farking out of control... oh but wait... it is for our own good, right?
2002-02-20 06:39:20 AM  
Feeling up cute girls rocks.
2002-02-20 06:45:07 AM  

The obnoxious part is that she was wearing a very snug top. She couldn't have smuggled a farking dime bag without it showing, but this "guard" found it necesary to grab both of her breasts. VERY firmly.
Proper frisking technique is to run the side of your hand down BETWEEN the breasts and along the outline of the bra under the arms and around the back.
Unfortunately I wasn't there, or all hell would have broken loose. Come to think of it, maybe it's just as well...
2002-02-20 06:46:03 AM  
Yeah, Goat, but feeling up MY cute girl only rocks if you're ME.
