Separate Airline Baby X-Ray Machines

Instead of putting your baby through the x-ray machine with the rest of your hand luggage, have a separate machine for them that both reduces harmful radiation and stops the child from crying. I suggest a small short burst as they pass thru a colourfully painted cubicle with hanging mobiles and furry walls.

(?) Do drug dealers use the hollowed-out bodies of dead children to smuggle cocaine into the United States? http://www.snopes2..../drugs/deadbaby.htm

       I think this is a fantastic idea, the number of times our 18 month old has crawled back out of the x-ray machine and we've had to strap him to a piece of hand luggage just to get him through...I can tell you this would be a real boon.
Of course, the other option is simply to check them in the hold in their car seat. This way, even if they do cry, you don't hear them!

       Surely you mean:   

       "both INCREASES harmful radiation and stops the child from crying" ?   

       Or maybe just a seperate airline for babies? After 90 mins of `waaaaaaah` (babytalk for `i`m in a plane..i`m in a plane`) you tend to get the idea!

       If only terrorists would stop packing explosives in their babies, we wouldn't need this.

       I just send ours Fed-Ex so it arrives around the same time we do.

       There has been a glut of fake animatronic babies smuggling all types of hidden nasties where I fly. It's compulsory.

       Shouldn't this idea be posted under "public: evil air travel"?

       What...ever.

       Just for a second there benfrost, I almost thought you were serious.

       I think this is the funniest thing I have ever read, and [StarChaser], that is the funniest link I have ever seen. Cheers.

       Pallex: I'm with you, dude. If smoking is considered too anti-social for planes, I say we ban rugrats too. How many times have you prayed for that mewling, puking, noise-machine to just play a little harder with the emergency door handle?
