Airport scanning technology = victory for terrorism?
Airport scanning technology is a transparent victory for terrorism | Technology | The Observer
That too is about to change. We've now discovered that within the next year or so the US department of homeland security plans to deploy a new laser-based molecular scanner fired from 50 metres away which will instantly reveal an astonishing level of detail not only about your body, clothes and luggage but also about the contents of your wallet and even of your intestines. It's claimed that the technology can identify traces of drugs on banknotes, gunpowder on your clothes and even what you had for breakfast, the adrenaline level in your body and substances in your urine. And all of this information can be collected without even touching you – and without your knowledge.

+1 on that, with all the traveling im doing ill take the laser over the TSA agents any day.
I actually had my first run in with TSA a few days ago, with my carry on. Had my bag pulled to check it out because of the contents weren't really clear. Very polite and fast, I was ready to expect one of those horror stories you hear but I was wrong

I thought you fly with Visa, Master Card, or American Express for security and safety reasons. If so, you won't have the "drug money" issue.

That brings up a good point. How do you pay for alcohol on a plane without any green?
Lap dances from old crusty flight attendants??? I don't think so. I rarely ever seen a young female flight attendant.
