Full Body Scan or Full Body Patdown?

Hey guys. Long time no post? Lol anyways.

I am flying home for my winter break from College and like everyone that goes to the airport, they have to get through security. And you guys all know about the full body scanners and rigorous pat downs, right? Well I am having trouble choosing which one to get. I know it should only take like 20 seconds. But it's either getting my junk touched or my junk zapped by radiation. Which would be better to deal with?

I'm probably on a plane a week on average, if you have the choice, just go for the one with the shorter line.

Re: Full Body Scan or Full Body Patdown?

I don't microwave food so I am not going in one of those machines, I would also be a bit worried about the guy checking my groin with the same pare of gloves on that he checked the guy in front of me who has a bad case of herpes or worse?

Have a read of this if you care to: http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/arxiv/24331/
and see what you think, who gives a monkies what I think or anyone else anyway you have to be violated or radiated. I would rather go through naked than be subjected to either and there are plans to move them into buildings also, incrementally.

No doubt I will be bashed for my views.

PEACE

I don't care what people can see... I care about what those machines will do to my body down the road. I'll take the rub down every time without hesitation.

I'm with nub, not too worried about the scan though - one time a cop patted me down and I was like "Hey man, I thought we were supposed to wait for the third date! I don't even know your name! "

Reminds me of this vid:

Get the pat down, but ask for a kiss first!

Re: Full Body Scan or Full Body Patdown?

I'd go for the scan...I don't like people touching me and that would really irritate me. A one-time scan will do nothing. When I worked at the stock exchange we had to walk through a scan everytime we entered the building...no way around it. That was 2 years worth, everyday, twice a day at least. So, probably 1,000 to 1,500 scans for me, who knows. If it was a chick, probably the pat down.

Went through security plenty the last few days. Mostly major airports. No fancy scanners, no pat downs, nothing different from last year.

Same here, and frankly I think this is "much ado about nothing" anyway. Don't want to be scanned, get the pat down. Don't want the pat down, don't fly.

I have larger things to be concerned about.

Re: Full Body Scan or Full Body Patdown?

The pilots union has set policy that pilots will not br scanned due to the level of radiation.
The stewardesses follow the same policy.

Re: Full Body Scan or Full Body Patdown?

I was thinking of going to get a pat down just for the hell of it - I'm not actually going anywhere.
