Eeeek! But I would prefer people not call each other "retarded."
There were a lot of comments that suggested that TSA have pax turn sideways as well. Obviously that is a huge time problem which is why they don't do it.
I seem to recall an early demonstration video on the BKSX, somewhere between 2007-2009, that showed just that. Unless I'm imagining this, there were two sets of footprints turned 90 degrees and the person stood facing the side of the scanner and then through the scanner. I dug around in my bookmark archive but haven't found it yet. If that is the case, it may indicate that the manufacturer designed the system requiring a two directional scan in order to work reliably. So if TSA went unidirectional to save time, it means they know these don't work for items on the side.
Anyone else recall this or did I just lose a few more neurons?
Is this a bad porn movie, a rape fantasy, or a reaction to airport security?
Oh, there's not much difference anymore, is there...
Not to mention that the ATR software is geared toward analyzing front & back views, with input from the operator as to whether the subject is male or female. It isn't just a simple matter of spending twice as much time scanning & irradiating people.
Some interesting reading from 1996 on deployment of the scanners. Starts at page 39. Entire report is lengthy but prescient in forecasting how this would roll out 15 years later.
Did you know they made an actual porn about TSA screening in which women do exactly as Emily suggests?
It's fabulous satire, though it's becoming less and less satirical by the day.
Interesting reading, indeed.
Thank you for posting this. Very informative.
Your memory is completely in tact, sir. Or else I, too, recall things that didn't exist.
Somebody helped you out a bit, Lisa. Dear Emily wrote something totally incorrect and was called on it.
Yeah, I called her on it. She lied about what Schneier wrote. I guess she thought nobody was capable of going over there and checking, including those of us who had already read what he wrote!
Just wanted you guys to know that I've begun working on my next video.
Can you give us a reel of coming attractions?
No way wouldnt want to give TSA a heads up there going to be embrassed again on the international stage.
Disinformation can be phun.
Like poking a caged tiger with a poker?
Oh, to be clear, the next video will embarass the TSA on the international stage.
I think we need to invent a new word to describe just how much (expletive deleted) Jon kicks.
Way to go Jon:
Separate names with a comma.
