    Works for me. Gets the message across, loud and clear.

    What happens when the terrorists begin using C4 suppositories? Random body cavity searches? Who are they going to get to do that job?

    There'll be no shortage of government volunteers.

    Well, goverment officials do like sticking their nose where it doesn't belong. Maybe they will teach them to sniff it out.

    I like the message, but the font doesn't seem drastic enough.

    You need a profile shot of the soldier. The public needs to see the helmet markings. SS runes or the swastika in the red sheild as used by the Waffen SS would be more recogonizible to the general public.

    I disagree with Jeff White on this one. You show the Nazi markings clearly you're pushed aside as a wacko. The subtle hint gets the point across very nicely. Thinking people that will get the message at all will recognize the helmet and uniform.

    Now, the font idea I like, maybe something more "Nazi" looking.

    I like it!

    I like it. I'd even like it without the text on the bottom.

    BTW is that based on a screenshot from wolfenstein?

    Simple, take the same pool of convicted offenders that the TSA draws from, and grab the ones who were party to prison rape.

    Picture was mine, of the same WW2 reenactor as the others. I'll revise the test later tonight.

    I really, really like this one -- and agree with TexasSigMan except about the font. The way it is has excellent subtlety!

    I have only seen a sign like that at an airport or outside a private concert venue. Maybe you could have an SS soldier rummaging through someone's medical records in an attempt to deny insurance coverage or perhaps collating multiple credit reports while stealing someone's identity. I worry about these a lot more than physical searches.

    Our government has little respect for our privacy, but they definately aren't the only ones.

    Oleg,

    That picture is fantastic. I'd love to see it run in a few newspapers...

    Oleg,

    I think the sign on the wall would work better in a "Germanic" font.

    I have almost no fonts on my PC (can Mac fonts eb converted?). Also, I am using a real sign from a museum nearby.
