Okay , just when you thought it couldn't get any more ridiculous ...
Israeli scientists have developed a new system to facilitate airport screenings . Their new scanner looks much like the ones being currently employed
, but with a new twist .
Instead of the rats that currently undress you with the scanners , you will now have real rats scrutinizing you as you pass through security
The new device houses three hidden chambers , which contain eight mice in each chamber , who are trained to sniff out explosives and drugs . They
claim it has been tested successfully , the mice correctly alerted to 22 people who passed through the scanner carrying mock explosives .
Might be amusing to pass through one of these with some cheddar cheese in your pocket .
Gives a whole new meaning to being "ratted out" .
