You are correct. You are selected at random. Just make sure you have nothing in your pockets and take of your belt and go thru the scanner and you should be fine. Personally I dont' worry about what they see body image wise on the scanner, it is still just an outline.

If you refuse the scanner then they will pat you down.

I went thru JFK and they did not have them in the terminal I went thru. I came back from Ft Lauderdale and they had them but I did not go thru it, nor did I see anyone get a pat down.

I had gone thru one a few months back. No big deal.

The problem is that they are giving big voices to people that want to find something to complain about and the media would love to blow it up. They are putting it into the minds of people that there is a problem.

I went thru Vegas in Sept and I did not see any of them at that time at 2 different terminals. Maybe now the have them.

Is 'pat you down' a euphemism for having one's testicles fondled by a stranger ?...

I've been to a few strip clubs where that happened to me. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Pretty much what I suspected. They make a huge deal out of everything, and it's usually all just blowing smoke.

I'm sure that would be hugely enjoyable.

Not sure the sensation would be altogether similar if the 'nut fondler' was a disgruntled,low-paid TSA employee who,moments' earlier,had his hands down the pants of a fat,sweaty guy with herpes,though.

The joys of air travel,eh ?...

In MP's case...he just close his eyes and pretend "HE" is an Ann-Margaret look-alike!
