Ok -- in Oz, I go thru airport security, the guard says "what's that 
showing up on the scanner?" and I say "I'm a uranium mine radiation 
safety officer, it's a geiger counter", and the guard says "No Probs, 
mate, have a good one" ...

If I try that in NYC, the response is "Off to Jail with You, yer 
obviously a Terrorist!"

Something Very Paranoid going on in the US of A....
