The Mother Nature Network? That sounds real scientific and unbiased.
Kirk is back?
Last I heard, he was being interrogated and probed
Nah... just thought it was interesting since it isn't considered a medical device the FDA does not regulate it... but rather the "industry" does... cuz if it was it would have spent some time at WEAC in Winchester.
Oh and maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan
Wait, so the device they mention at the beginning of the article is NOT the one the TSA uses? Why are we even discussing this, then?
Which is a good thing, right? Because the last thing we need is another fucking level of government oversight, bureaucracy, and regulation where it's not fucking needed, right?
And it certainly ISN'T needed in this case. A backscatter imaging device can't wallop you with a harmful dose of radiation any more than your toaster can. And your microwave oven is a nefarious death ray device compared to these scanners.
note- I repaired medical x-ray and MRI systems for 15 years.
So you don't think an industry sponsored QA/QC might screw the pooch?
I used to work with the "industry sponsored" QA/QC techs who did the field repairs and safety checks on the baggage x-ray machines at JFK and LaGuardia, and they were perfectly competent. Guys like them are more than qualified to ensure the safety of the Big, Bad See-Your-Stubby-Dick machine. We don't need Big Brother Uncle Sugar running around with his fat fingers in every fucking nook and cranny of our lives in order that we be kept safe, warm and dry... which is exactly why we don't need these screener machines in use in the first place.
