Moscow Fever

NYC to Moscow - Russian security wields a new weapon.

NYC to Moscow - Russian security wields a new weapon.

Before they would let us off the plane, a crack team of thermometer wielding security professionals took every passenger’s temperature with a laser shooting ear gun. One shot of the ruby light into each passenger’s ear told them if there were any fevers on board. Out of a full plane of several hundred coughing, sneezing people, I was surprised we weren’t quarantined for a week or two. I was also surprised that it didn’t take them hours to shoot everyone in the ear.

    Frank! I almost fell off my chair laughing at the guy with the laser temperature thermometer! You HAVE to be kidding? Really? Funny…the “swine flu” has the whole world thinking that this practically the Bubonic Plague…it’s not even close to being all that serious…blown way out of proportion. And, to think, it’s the world over…man, the media is getting tons of mileage out of this blown-out-of-proportion story….I’m glad to see you made it safely there.

    The reason so many people died in Mexico from the “swine flu” is because they practice some otherwise “alternative” health practices…so the conventional means doesn’t always really work down there. Or, at least the people who did die didn’t use the conventional hospital methods for healing. They tend to go for the unconventional healing practices that usually don’t work…and people don’t survive the high bodily temperatures brought on from that particular flu strain. But, hey what do I know…I’m not a doctor…just someone trying to use common sense! Well…nice to see you passed the temperature test!
