Maker of Full-Body Scanners Loses Its TSA Contract to Humiliate Passengers at Airport Security CheckpointsDoug Barry1/19/13 1:30pmFiled to: TsaTravelAirportsFull-body scannersrapiscanAppictweetFb108EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkYou know your worst flying fear? No, not that thing about waking up from a nap to hear the pilot slurring over the intercom, "Hey, laaaydeeez and gentlesmen, it's the ol' captain speaking. Whew, okay, it's truth time — your captain just washed down a pair of quaaludes he's been carrying around since ‘72 with a little vodka. In unrelated personal news, my wife told me today that she's leaving me and I feel like my life no longer has meaning. Speaking of fate's senseless cruelty, we're currently cruising at an altitude of 37,000 over the South Pacific, far away from any hospitable land mass where the lightning fist of a vengeful Old Testament god might strike us out of the sky at any moment..." It's that fear you have that all the TSA agents aren't just inconveniencing your passage through security checkpoints — they're also using the body scanners to make fun of your naked body. Well, thanks to a whole lot of complaints from passengers, as well as members of Congress, about the invasiveness of full-body scanners, the TSA has said that, like the snows of yesteryear, the scanners will soon be gone from this earth. Or at least the from international airport nearest you.
