 Some enterprising individual should buy a detector, or get a cop friend to
 loan access to one, and figure out how various materials scan, and then go
 into the "scan fashions" business---geometric shapes, silhouettes of a
 pretty girl, "scan-proof" underwear, A t-shirt or jeans that scans to show
 in block letters "No Peeping", A guitar silhouette, A rose, a huge hemp
 leaf, opaque trench coats and purses.... Sell them in head shops.

 Make them the next cool trend and make a fortune.
