    I don't see much invasive about it. It's just a step up from the metal dectors.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I think naked images, particularly with no proof of wrong doing or reasonable suspicion, is maybe a bit invasive.

    I've seen them, and naked isn't exactly what you get. More of a profile, like my kids did in shadow portraits. I just don't see it as that invasive.

    What you see is from the TSA, which is not full resolution, not full size, often very pixelated, and often had the contrast or brightness messed with.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    I doubt it is much better. It is clearly not a naked view.

    It's got pretty good detail. Would you be ok if somehow this was in handheld form and your kids had it? Plus the effects of millimeter wave radiation on the human is not well known at this point. There is indication that this particular form of radiation is very good at unzipping DNA. Though there would need to be more tests to really find out. It would be nice if those were done before putting in these devices.

    Not sure what you mean in the first question, but as I understand it there is more radition concerns with the flight itself than from the scanner.

    Also, I'm pretty sure our kids have seen worse on TV or on the internet regularly. I suspect this wouldn't cause them to so much as flinch.

    One would think Israel and its airline(s) would have experience with this sort of thing, considering their situation...

    How do they do this security bit?

    Perhaps we can get some ideas?

    They don't use these pat downs or scanners, have a better record than us. IIRC, multiple layers of profiling is one of their tactics.
