Much as been said since Christmas Day about the use of the full body scan. Some countries immediately began using the scanners. Reagan Airport locally is using full body scanners. However, there are many privacy issues that are preventing TSA from implementing these machines from full use at all airports for all passengers.

The body scanners are quite controversial because of privacy and basically, getting a bird’s eye view of people in private areas. Women seem to feel far more violated than do men.

Should all passengers undergo a full body scan or is enough enough? Will the body scanners stop terrorists or is this just another hoop to jump through? Are we giving up all our rights of privacy to be safe or to give an illusion that we are safe?

    JustinT is referring to Avatar. Indeed, the lead female in the movie can best be described as a “blue cat woman” and yes, she is very sexy. Words don’t describe it. Somewhere online there’s plenty of pictures – just look up a review of the movie and they’ll probably be a picture of her.

    And yes, Avatar is still playing in the theaters. Came out last month and people are flocking to see it. One of the most expensive pictures ever made, by James Cameron, who also made Titanic and then it was one of the most expensive movies ever made. Avatar reportedly cost $300 million or more to make. However, it is making money hand over fist at the movies. Audicences love it. There’s not a movie like it really, a very interesting use of motion capture technology and other special effects. Go to any movie theater in the area, most likely it is playing there in multiple theaters.

    Picture of “blue cat woman” as part of a review of the movie (there’s better pictures, but didn’t know where to search for them):

    Actually, you can see her a lot in the movie trailer, which will give you an idea of what the movie is like:

    I’m not surprised one bit about that coming from Carville, he isn’t a guy with a whole lot of tact or mincing his words.

  6. I didn’t know that the scanners could double as micrometers……

  7. Wait a minute….you folks are doing bizarro world for me. Blue cat woman is sexy? Carville is …exposing himself with a body scanner? Let the nightmares be over. Blue Cat Woman and Skeletor just don’t do it for me. How about Rob Lowe? That works. 😉
