Have you ever had the experience where in a sudden blast you lost your shoes, and didn't know how it happened?
They will force you through the full body scanner same as before. Then you will step into the next anteroom, where powerful blasts of air will instantly disrobe you: pants, shirts, shoes, undies. For children and the infirm, unyielding robots of lovingkindness will assist. Shwoop! A container will appear in an alcove, with a right-sized featureless grey smock. Put it on, or the waiting robots will do it to you. Your clothes and carryons will be whisked away to be packed in storage. You will find your assigned personal pod where, like in The Fifth Element, you will slip gently into unconsciousness. When you wake up, you will be at your destination, your clothes upon you, your bags in front of you. And away you go, you Eloi stud muffin you. Posted by: John A.

My wife bought one of them shocker things, looks like a tennis racket, for swatting wasps on the porch. I touched the grid while holding the button. My left leg jumped up in the air and the hiking boot flew off. Yes, it was laced up, tight, but it still flew off.
Was kinda funny. Till I noticed the quarter size welt on my palm. Seems like overkill for tiny wasps. If someone sat on that thing they might go to the ER.
Oh yeah, it only cost $3 and change at Harbor Freight. Now how can they sell them things for that kinda money? Got a whole cart full of stuff and only spent $75.
Don't gimme that cheap chinese junk excuse. You're better'n that. Last time I was in HF was more'n 15 years ago and 1 of the things I bought, for $40, was a heavy duty hand truck that still looks like new and performs as well as the day it was born and I have used the hell out of it over the years.
