There are these new xrays that are used in airports that use radiation to see you naked:

If a had my cellphone and car alarm remote and magnetic credit card in my pocket, would the radiation from the xray damage them?

As johnr said, the biggest issue would them seeing the size of your "package", it's ultra ultra ultra low radiation...you are subjected to more radiation than that daily through cell towers and general electric appliances

It's actually deadly to be scanned by one of those machines, you just watch! 100% of the people who have gone through one WILL DIE eventually!

What you need to do is wrap yourself in tin foil before you go to the airport, in fact just being wrapped in tin foil 24hours a day is a good thing to prevent you from stray radiation, and if you wrap all your possessions in tin foil as well it'll keep them alive longer too.

Now if you;ll excuse me I just need to buy some more shares in BakoFoil ......

Hahahaha, now you've made him nervous, he'll run into the scanner sweating, a zealous security guard will think he's a terrorist and boom!!!

Did anyone else see that this might not be going ahead now? because you can scan children with it...and nude children = possession of CP

I take it you're referring to this? Ridiculous.
