If You Come Through MEL Airport, Everyone Will See These.....

Believe it or not, this pretty excellent graphic is not the motivation behind this post. Last week I stumbled upon this article, which details how new security scanners at Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport will actually show your naughty places.

"The scanner uses a low energy X-ray to reveal any objects, metal or otherwise, under a person's clothing, including body features. The testing will be entirely voluntary during the trial , which is being undertaken to test how the new scanners would affect the flow of passengers through the security point."

If it truly is 'entirely voluntary,' then I find myself asking what kind of sicko/exhibitionist would put their hand (or whatever) up for this?
