Bollywood Star´s Scanned Pictures Are a Hoax


Last year in August, Bollywood Star Shahrukh Khan was stopped and detained at Newark Liberty Airport, sparking rumours that the Star had signed scanned pictures of his naked body at London airport.

BAA is completely denying such rumours and saying it is impossible, since the scanners cannot print images, nor store them to be distributed, let alone have a printout a few minutes after a person is scanned.

"I was in London recently going through the airport and these new machines have come up, the body scans. You´ve got to see them. It makes you embarrassed – if you´re not well endowed," he told Mr. Ross on a BBC chat show.

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
to see how conspiracies and rumours are started. Even though this news should not have made it at first place, it just continued rolling like a snowball. During the interview with Mr Ross, it should have been noted as impossible, according to what he said, which was " “I was a little scared. Something happens [inside the scans], and I came out. Then I saw these girls – they had these printouts. I looked at them. I thought they were some forms you had to fill. I said ´give them to me´ – and you could see everything inside. So I autographed them for them.”" It is almost at the sametime he was scanned, they were printed and circulated around the Airport. WHich should have raised few eyebrows at this reporter How else are they going to sell news! If there is none, just fabricate and you are good to go.

They can indeed print out these pictures, and they are saved on a network hard drive. This has been confirmed by many sources many times over the past few months. Just because the machines themselves don´t print them out doesn´t mean the guy behind closed doors who views the scans on a windows computer can´t hit the print screen button, and then paste it into paint, then print it out. Or take a cell phone shot... Never trust what governments say at face value.

  It would follow  
that the images can be printed and stored. They could be used as evidence, and Big Brother likes that.

The fact that people can even see you naked as you walk through one of these is wrong, let alone keep and distribute the images. Not to mention the fact that if the images contain children then anyone viewing them is in breach of laws put in place for very good reason. In my view they should have all been arrested, charged and imprisoned a long time ago to stop this Orwellian nightmare rolling on over what´s left of Britain.

  I won´t fly again,,,  
I can´t now and would not want to. There is no limits to the privacy these world deciders takes from you. Next we will be walking through naked.

  seriously though  
what can be done with a million photos of Papa Smurfs bawbag?

  One of the many reasons  
I´ll never fly again

I´m more worried about the radiation exposure than I am my modesty. If some pervert wants to look at a fuzzy image of my naked body, then he is welcome to do it. I would only feel sorry for the skuzzball.

  I don´t understand  
I imagine these pics look like the ones when you get medical xrays. Theres no pics at either of the source. If that is the case, I don´t see what the big deal is. "Oh no, don´t look at my bones!" Who cares?

Am I missing something?

take a look and you be the judge.

  Holy crap  
Those aren´t skeletons at all. I personally wouldn´t care, you´re still just a blue figure that looks like a person, but I can surely see how some people might get a bit more worked up.

I´d prolly want a printout to take with me too.

Amazing how the media is so compliant to the government´s interests...since these systems are run on computers there is always a way to copy and duplicate information, and its ignorant to think that they won´t eventually if they aren´t already.

Are laughing at us big times. The way they disrupt our critical thinking is amazing. My wife opted for a pat down and of her choice. Female instead of a male and few minutes later, another woman was denied a choice, she intervened by telling the security officer, she was allowed to make a choice, why not this Indian woman. Security replied, we dont have time for this nonsense, if she doesnt want to be screened she should not travel. The Indian lady was a 2nd generation british citizen born in UK.

We are lowering our standards everyday.

this has been called out as a hoax, as well =)

As a government move into the direction of our privacy, I can understand some concern. My own personal concern is limited, I guess. I really don´t mind appearing as a blue figure in a scanner. As far as I´m aware, I look like a typical adult male.

Oh, and I´m also a nude model, in case there are any starving artist out there.

  I call shenanigans on the part of the BAA  
because these machines, when put into test mode are capable of both storing and printing the images. And NO they do NOT blur your your P´s, T´s & A´s...

They have even admitted this. All it takes is one employee who is getting off on seeing a girl or some dude walking through and they can do this.

I see no reason for these machines whatsoever except to exert the power of elites over the masses. We obey simply because we are foolish little sheep willing to be herded by our beloved masters.

How does seeing my penis or my wifes boobs make this world safer? It does not!
