Well I have these metal shoes and got beeped at them one time two weeks ago.. Got the scanner thing around me and him feeling up my legs and all over. Really creeped out so I just got rid of the shoes for thr trip last week.

I honestly see no need for the scanner.

Our airports have both. You're either going to walk through the metal detector or the full body scanner. It just depends on the number of passengers and what TSA is willing/has time to do.

Wow i never had a TSA agent touch me...

I think the scanners are basically just high tech versions of metal detectors.

Yes I was in one. Yes if you beep they can use the scanner or their hands to feel if there is anything.

yeah, I've stopped over in San Francisco, but I would never say I have visited. Seeing an airport, is not seeing a place.

Yes its terribly far away. I would get two flights to get there.. can't sit for that long. Oh and Hawaii is 7,000 miles away a 13 HOUR flight. Yeah thats not gonna happen anytime soon. All these far away places will have to happen with stop overs.

Pretty much

in Texas I recommend you San Antonio because it has excellent mexican food and very nice tex-mex culture plus is not just suburbs, it has a proper downtown like in Europe with old colonial spanish architecture and so.

The rest of Texas is mostly suburbias, massive SUV's, big highways, big people and shopping malls, the kind you see everywhere else in the US!

Miami = colorful latin culture, tropical, art deco, attractive people, good food
NYC = multicultural, interesting, world city
chicago = smaller NYC
NOLA = french culture, good cajun food
California = nice spain influence, beautiful beaches, mediterranean weather
New mexico = amazing with the pueblos and the unique native american and mexican culture

by the way my dad is an American so I am a dual US citizen
