Interesting. This would be in a good way.
I have wondered if the scanners at the airports ARE doing the same thing in a negative way.
Here is my story.
Gabe, my wife and I recently got back from a holiday to Mexico.
Well before leaving, my wife and I discussed the scanners and felt that one only had to go through them if you were flying to the US. We knew that they were installed in Toronto, but felt we had nothing to worry about.
Just in case we made sure we had nothing on us that would set off the alarms, to put us in line for the scanner/opt out pat down BS.
Well as we were going through security, much to our horror, we were randomly selected to go throught the dreaded choice line.
My wife was first and was told she could either put her hands over her head and stand in the microwave oven or be groped by a Security officer. Well the thought of some greaseball putting their hands all over you is revolting so she, and then I chose the nuker!
It is not a pleasant position to be put in I can tell you.
Now to the point of the story......you guys all know that not much flusters me, but for a couple of weeks my nerves have been shot. Had anxiety attacks for a few days. I blame it on that damn machine. I feel much better now btw., but it was not a pleasant experience. My wife has been exhausted ever since and very tired early in the evenings. Maybe just a coincidence, but I am not so sure.
Now here is the ironic part. When we went through security, they asked if we had any gels/liquids. We said no. Well after we got through, the bags included, we realized that the one bag was supposed to have been in the big bag that got checked in to go under the plane. There was gels, toothpaste, vicks vapo rub, nail polish remover, and other stuff. It never got detected!!!!! So much for security! All they want to do is mess with our heads.
