Food Scanner | Living the Write Life

One day I was at an all-you-can-eat buffet. While there I came up with the idea of a futuristic world where buffets had body scanners much like the x-ray body scanners airports have but these would scan for food. So if you tried to sneak something out, the scanner would catch you. I went further with this idea; I decided that theaters would also have these to catch people bringing in “outside food.” It was a real bleak and dystopian society.

I came up with another idea from this buffet visit that I’m planning to turn into a comic. Hopefully, someday I’ll post it on my YouTube channel–once I get through the 400 other ideas running through my mind.
