I did see this a number of days ago on Gizmodo but thought it was definitely worth re-sharing considering my earlier post on the matter. I’m pretty damn surprised how easy it is to turn those full body scanner images into something that looks plenty realistic (careful, the linked full-size image is NSFW):

Should we really be that concerned about swine flu? Perhaps there are bigger fish to fry. I’m not too sure if most people have noticed that in the past week, North Korea has performed a successful underground nuclear test much larger in yield than their failed 2006 effort. They’ve also tested 3 separate ballistic missiles and have declared that any search and seizure by the US and South Korea naval blockade will be considered an act of war.
Oh yeah, and they’ve decided the 1953 armistice is moot thanks to the blockade. Meanwhile, the top story on both smh.com.au and news.com.au is about the swine flu, an illness recently commented on by a Canberran bureaucrat who had recovered from it – “I’ve had worse paper cuts.”
