    Here's a solution to all the controversy over full-body scanners at airports. Have a booth that people can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on you.

    [The "explosion room" is totally reinforced, with titanium steel and multi-layers of concrete; Only "the passing-through person" is inside.]

    It would be a win-win for everyone, and there would be none of this crap about racial profiling, and this method would eliminate a long expensive trial. Justice would be quick and swift.

    Now THAT is an idea..... only problem is cost, and time (to get thousands of people through, one at a time). Oh, and the space that each booth would have to take up.



    but work those out, and patent it. Cause that would be very cool.

    Not only that, but when you detonate one, that would shut down the entire line and possible the entire security checkpoint.

    I still like the idea though.

    They might as well design it with water nozzles to wash the room afterward...
