Just curious, don't baggage x-rays color items differently based on the material of the item?
We're negotiating the reward before we turn him in.
It would be based on the density, or if it detected the boundary between two objects, the software could color the two objects differently.
If nothing is reflected back, it would have no clue as to why. It would be as clueless as Nappy.
Poor Curtis Burns; he tries so hard to make himself look hip and trendy that it just makes him look like a bigger square than he really is.
