They can x-ray laptops, they x-rayed mine

However due to their design it's hard to see whats inside them.

They can scan it. If I can't bring my laptop on a plane then I believe the terrioist has won.

When he said Good idea in the eyes a a terrist he meens just that.

If a terrist was to read brookfields idea he would say to himself. "Good Idea" That is what he was saying.

I'm sorry if this alarms people, but I feel that this has to be investigated, anyone know an email address that this could be relayed to?
you dont need a powerful bomb in an aircraft.. you realise just how thin the walls of the plane actually are? next week i go to the factory where they manufacture airbus planes, it would be so easy to create a small explosion in one, all it needs is for the outer shell to be breached, and the plane is history.. liquid explosives, solid explosives, they would be very easy to conceal and get aboard..

i dont think this bomb thing is anything to worry about. the reason i say this is because i don't think it's very common for someone to want to just blow up a plane (with themselves in it) for no reason. it would just be a plane in the sky and nothing would really happen (like how 9/11 happened) they had an objective and in that case they wouldn't need bombs. i think that if a terrorist really wanted to do something they would need things like knives or guns, which is nearly impossible to get on a plane.

uhh... data on a hard drive is basically a bunch of gouges on a platter/disc.. scanning it with X-Ray will not affect that.. just the needles inside the hard drive would... where did you get that theory?
