If the timing isn't right, you'll lose big time.
    Well, I can agree with you on the pharmaceutical companies and their conspiracy to make money off of our ailments and sicknesses. And yet they hold the power because they have the vast lab resources to combat any sickness that they never concocted themselves.

    As for the aforementioned scanners, sooner or later it will have mainstream application, just as in the movies.

    Your other choice is not to fly at all. Or buy your own damn plane.

    I'm gonna get a large canoe and fasten a BMW jet engine to the back of it. That should do the trick.

    We should just all take off our clothes along with our shoes and walk thru naked and demand a cavity search! Pretty soon TSA will get too grossed out and the time it takes to search everybody will make them rethink things.
    Life is what you make of it...so please read the instructions carefully.

    Now if we get the really big people to participate, we may get the terrorists to avoid airports altogether.

    As an extra deterrent, we can get them [the big people] to wear signs that say "The 72nd virgin", or something.

    Next step: Reject all non-weapon, non-explosive carrying passengers, put the plane on auto and let them all blow each other up.

    Yeah, I know.
