Almost makes me want to be a TSA screener

The Transportation Security Administration is testing a x-ray device that makes passengers appear naked. Some feel it’s better than being patted down. I think it’ll just make the whole screening job much more appealing. Imagine how many candidates will be attracted to the job!

Unless, of course, the TSA decides to implement a software modification that

    an electronic fig leaf – programming that fuzzes out sensitive body parts or distorts the body so it does not appear so, well, graphic.

That’ll sure satisfy any privacy objections.

(Thanks to alert reader Jeff for the pointer.)
