Can any Freeper shed some light on this
A Buddy of mine was down in T. J. this weekend, That being tiajunna Mexico Upon his return as he was going though customes he showed his I.D. and that of his wife that was with him The customes Agent looked at a beeber like device. And asked which one of them had a stress test "He had one the week before He was stuned and asked how the agent knew and the agent said its best you dont know and he let them cross no big deal
I had that test,They told me not to use their bathroom after the test.
The nice thing about radiation is that it is easy to detect even minicule amounts of it fairly easily.
With that, I shal retire for the night with a big grin!
My husband had a stress test in the hospital a couple of weeks ago, and it is quite freaky. They bring out an actual lead-lined box with all kinds of radioactive symbols on it. They open it up, and the syringe is inside, that they then inject you with. Boy do you feel safe at that point!!!
I am surprised how little they cost.
I just did a search on Google and found a site, where you can get a pocket model for a couple hundred dollars.
Maybe people should be be encouraged to buy them, or the government could sell it to them at a reduced price, and if a lot of people had them, it would be harder for the terrorists to transport them in trucks or vans, or store them in a garage in a city, without someone noticing it.
Sleep tight, don't let the beebers bite.
Look out! It's indicating "0.025!"
I was in DC last week, went through many security checks and the only one that registered that I had a stress test was at the Supreme Court. They asked if I had recently had any chemo. I had the test 2 weeks before.
Wow...I'm impressed. I know several have been sceptical about the Thallium being detected. So am I the little device would have to be pretty sensitive, but I don't have an alternative explanation.
Interesting. I guess those detectors are really sensitive.
A relevant article:
Iowa to check for radioactive cargo (at truck weigh stations)
So I guess it's entirely believable, that they would have radiation detectors at the US-Mexico border.
Yes there are also Geiger counters at public landfill scales and one other excellent place I know of that I don't wish to disclose here , there may be a fly on the wall.
Why would you go to that rat hole Mexico anyway ?, I hate that friggen place! , nice people but the Mexican government is an oppressive and corrupt, evil dictatorship deserving of death and destruction ! .
Last time I was there, partying at nite on Rosarito in 1976 some federales came to rob us (collect fines for illegal camping) and shot our buddy who just retired from 3 years the Army . Now he is a paraplegic , he is now a psych counselor for the recently parlyzed....
Only way I will go back there is wearing camo with guns blazing
Screw Mexico ! I flip off every "peace" loving won't fight for freedom bastard with green and red flag in his window when i'm in the mood
Try eBay - they're about $20 last I noticed (it's been a while).
It isn't altogether unlikely. Thallium is pretty nasty stuff and does accumulate in body tissue. Several interesting murder cases have incorporated it - unless you know to look for heavy metal contamination it's a pretty sneaky way to kill somebody. A guy named Graham Young got away with it in the 70s until he started to brag about it.
Wow! That is one stuning Beeber!
Larry King had a fit when he went to a White House function (when Clinton was still around) and they would not let him in. Why? The Secret Service guys detected the nuclear material in his blood from a test of some kind. And this was BEFORE 9/11 ; so imagine what they are looking for now.
sheesh...would ya'll stop....okay...here's the voice of reason...he was messin' with you. You were so not on their mental list of terrorists. Reality is....these guys/gals on the borders DO profile....and I would not want them there if they didn't. You can tell them NOT to....but, that isn't going to happen. Profiling NEEDS to happen...and....it does....you can't ask someone to NOT profile when it is in their best interest (and that of our country) that they DO!
Though...I had a giggle or two reading the posts...
I had a stress test a few weeks ago and they used some chemical other than thallium. I have no idea what it was, but I could really see the blood flowing through my carotids on the instrument screen.
