Harold popped his eyes open as the buds from his iPod were rudely yanked from his skull.

He twirled in his chair and looked at his supervisor, Mr.Brown, then stared beyond him at the device ensuring the safety of travellers.

The chamber detects any explosives.

If so, a *poof* of fusion exhaust.

Mr.Brown spoke, "Harold, you're aware that your station has reported 127 consecutive override terminations?"

Harold picked up his coffee off the red button as a flash of light accompanied the counter incrementing to 128.
