I've heard of alternative medicine, but this is ridiculous.
Last night at LAX, a man of Iraqi descent was taken aside to be searched in depth because he kept setting off the metal detectors. He kept setting off the hand-held metal detectors even though he'd emptied his pockets of everything even vaguely metallic, so they proceeded to the nightmare of most human beings - the body cavity search.
They found in his rectum a small magnet wrapped with wires, which he said was part of a home remedy.
I really can't make any wise-ass comments about this, because the whole scenario speaks for itself.
