A permanent device containing various pressure sensor
inserted into ones rectum for more secure egress though
Once installed the device could be activated by border
control officers at security checkpoints telling them the
approximate volume and weight of the contents of ones
as a way to potentially find drug smugglers with greater
This device could be made mandatory on application for a
passport. Some may call it an invasion of privacy but you've
got nothing to worry about if you aren't hiding anything.
||I understand that there is a similar technology being developed in Australia with under the working title "rectal penaliser".
||Why not a mandatory poo at the security checkpoint? I
would actually be in favor of the existence of the TSA if
their job involved *literally* searching through everyone's
crap for prohibited items.
||Vote for mandatory poo, neutral on idea.
||What [rcarty] and [ytk] said.
||If the TSA collected all the mandatory poos,
they could store them and then every time
they had enough they could use them to
a new TSA manager. Obviously that would
need an awful lot of poo, as even the

incompetence and sullen bureaucratic
obstructionism as the TSA, but only have shit

so as to maintain proper chain of custody.

||Yes, the second you go off script it all get a bit complicated, like me at Dover a long time ago, having to explain that the Japanese lass with me was not my girlfriend.
||But, oh blimey, they are nothing like Beijing transit passport control, where they spend 5 minutes looking at the passport, then ask you to take off the glasses, "look up", say "is this you?" then discuss it with the guy in the other booth and if there's 300 people just landed...
||Seeing as all the electronics for automatic passport scanning machines are made in China it's a bit odd they don't use them...
