‘They’re Here!’ (or almost here)

No, this isn’t a post regarding the film Poltergeist.  (However, for a great Halloween flick, check out today’s You Tube selection!)

Real News Reporter has a story about which we should all be concerned.  Or not.  You’re choice.

I’m not familiar with this news source, so I don’t know whether or not to trust what they say.  Sadly, I do believe such technology exists.  Whether or not it is feasible to implement as described is the question.

NOT to mention whether or not the government (or private entities) will implement it.  Or have already.

Here’s an excerpt:

Hidden Government Scanners Will Instantly Know Everything About You From 164 Feet Away

Within the next year or two, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will instantly know everything about your body, clothes, and luggage with a new laser-based molecular scanner fired from 164 feet (50 meters) away. From traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes to what you had for breakfast to the adrenaline level in your body—agents will be able to get any information they want without even touching you.

And without you knowing it.

So, is it time to don the foil chapeaus or what?  Not that ‘they’ couldn’t penetrate such a countermeasure.  :-(

Be afraid, be very afraid!

  1. “From traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes”

    They’d probably want to forget about the gunpowder residue if they try this here… their machine would just overload and melt or something.

    Nah… this sort of thing is pretty silly, especially outside of big cities. There is nothing really to be gained from any of it otherwise.

    And who in their right mind wants to live in a big city? I’ll bet a lot of folks on the east coast are rethinking that today.

    • Sadly I wasn’t suggesting it was a good idea, reasonable or efficient. And I’ll bet ‘they’ didn’t consider that either! :-)
      As to the big cities thing, I for one, don’t have the option of moving ‘out-of-town’ to avoid the apocalypse.
      So, I’m kinda stuck here with what I can get. And am at the mercy of such intrusive government concepts. I suspect it’ll be tested more in NYC than Flotsam’s Mistake, NJ.!

  2. I don’t doubt that such scanners are either under development or already in place. I just don’t care. Maybe we need to start scrawling derogatory remarks about TSA etc. with invisible ink on our bodies, so only their scanners can see them. It’s a start.

    On the other hand, I understand that some folks are starting to post descriptions of TSA workers, and their vehicles, on bulletin boards and chat rooms. You do the math. Looks like The People are finally getting fed up.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
