Privacy, Security, Encryption If you're modest, think twice before having sex in your van, truck, or RV. Law enforcement uses roving vans with backscatter X-ray technology to peer inside vehicles (the same technology used in airport body scanners). In the Land of the Free, authorities don't request search warrants. More at Forbes here and here. What, you don't want an X-ray bath?

What? I mean govs are baddies, but... Really? You have no other place to play daddley-the-rapist other that in your f-kin car? Strange people living on the face of the strange planet, go figure.

I'm guessing the people driving these vans are not just imaging suspect's cars. They are apparently operating w/o warrants.

"Lets see who's getting laid in this neighborhood tonight!"
"Hey look, that guy's masturbating, lets irradiate him."

Basically try to picture Beavis and Butthead operating these things, because that's probably who is actually doing it.

I was a "Security Officer" for high-risk (danger/security) jobs for quite some time. You are more right than you know!!

You never had sex in a car in your life? You must have had very boring late teen years.
