Yup - he must have had a nuclear stress test, where they inject thallium into your blood. I guess the agents have some pretty decent geiger/gamma-ray detectors.

It's actually Tijuana.

No, I never heard of this.


It's a reasonable guess that the customs officials are looking for any nuclear material.

But I doubt that they are so ultrasensitive to be able to detect the miniscule amount of radiation people get during a stress test.

It's interesting info, though.

If they were looking for radiation, I am glad they are doing that.

Of course any terrorist worth his salt will go across the border at some other location, where there is no official border crossing, but we need to check everything.

Do you mean a thallium heart stress test? And it's a week later? That'd be some geiger counter, but anything's possible. It usually flushes from the system pretty quickly, or so I was told when I had mine.

Linda Vester on FoxNews interviewed a guy yesterday who said Osama's group acquired up to 20 suitcase size nuclear weapons around 1996 and some of those have already made their way into the US.

Several of the raised alerts emphasized radiation detection devices in NYC and Washington, DC.

Yes, I heard of someone being pulled by authorities over locally when the radioactive material from his stress test was detected as he was driving by!

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.

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

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...

It is a detector of radioactivity. There have been reports in medical journals that people who got I131 (radioactive Iodine treatment of thyroid cancer or goiters) have been arrested in NYC subways...and the American thyroid association urges the doctors give them letters saying when they had the treatment.

When you get a "SPECT" scan or "Myoview" stress test of the heart, they inject a small amount of radioactive substance into you, and then if the heart muscle lacks oxygen, it glows on the scanner.

It would also pick up bone scans etc.

And, of course, it would pick up radioactive dust if you had been making a "dirty Bomb"

I guess correspondence courses aren't worth the monitors they're printed on.
