TSA: Testicle Security Agency

Flying Just Keeps Getting More Annoying

The Transportation Security Administration plans to begin testing the two new machines by February or March. One, called a Trace Portal, shoots small puffs of air at passengers as they walk through it to detect any explosive residue on their clothing. Another machine, called the Backscatter, works as a kind of X-ray to reveal items hidden beneath travelers' clothing. Privacy groups criticized the machine for revealing too much of the body because it displays clear outlines of private areas.
