  • I see...and were the dealers also trained X-ray technicians? And where did they keep the photographic plates or detectors so they could actually capture the X-rays that passed through the suspected cheaters? Obviously cheaters don't always sit in the same chair, so they'd have to be able to move the plates around pretty stealthily or the whole X-ray set-up would be completely useless.

    Ooooorrrrr, you just made this up. I know which possibility MY money's on.
