How would the technology be able to differentiate between malintent and a benignly nervous (anxious) disposition? A cute, modern way of herding in human cattle. I'm touched, Homeland Security.

Looks like Big Brother is alive and well. The thought Police have found you to be a malintent individual.

I will never walk through one of these stations, no question about it. This is the most ridiculous and intrusive idea I've heard in a long time.

Solution, pop a xanax or have a few drinks before you get on the plane with your bomb. Millions of dollars of technology is beaten by a 6 pack of beer.

I'm sure they make it so you don't even now its there and you're just being pulled off to the side for a "random" search.

You have all this cool fancy high-tech stuff at sporting events and airports, you say? That's cool, I'll just blow up a mall.


I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Cooters on fire off the shoulder of General Discussion. I watched spittle-flecked posts glitter in the dark near the Pub. All those moments will

Scary, I rather live with a 0001.00% chance of being blown up then having to be treated as a criminal until proven innocent.

Lol, less instrusive then X ray scanning? Nothing to worry about except for being threated as a severe criminal... =p It won't be flawless either, lie detection test can be beaten so this can only act as a monitoring/thread assesement device but by no means would be conclusive. Nervous people could still be labeled as "suspicious" and wrong doers could still walk out (say because they got sterdy nerves, thus no sudden changes in hearth ritm etc.).

And if they question a suspect who actually plans to do any wrong, it would be smart if said person brought any items/tools (s)he'd need before or after the screening (smuggling it in by planting items on some innocent passerby for example).

I sure as hell would have better things to do then waste my time answering questions. Sounds rather time consuming, they'd need to ask a series of neutral questions to see what the monitors record when you tell the truth, followed by various follow up questions and such. So I'd expectt quite a queque to form ("please checking 6 hours before the concert/expo/flight/..." =p ). And I don't like being threated as a murder suspect, so... :sitonit:

Oh and the last guy clearly sounded nervous, his voice alone was suspiciously unstable, no need for fancy equipment to tell you that... =p

Xray scanning, lie detection questing and such as security precautions? I rather take the chanches of being blown to bits or seek alternative transport. If their ain't an alternative, well it won't be good for business as you jsut lost yourself a tourist/cient/customer/visitor/... and with me I'd hope plenty of other people. The trouble every person would have to go through wouldn't be worth the security benefit. And even if you mananged to make it 99% fail save, people with bad intentions would move on to an alternative target. So you'd have to to apply such security measures in well, pretty much all aspects of life..
