I’ve got an infrared thermometer, and I’m not afraid to use it.
Brian should be terrified.
Should we explain to him that:
- I think he meant “neurons”, not “neutrons”. Neither are destroyed by an infrared thermometer.
- While many infrared thermometers have a laser to identify the spot being measured, it’s low intensity and doesn’t penetrate the skin. Or the bones of the cranium. Or the brain, or “brian”.
- They work by measuring the infrared radiation emitted by your skin. Not by zapping you.
So this is the quality of the opposition to basic health care measures? We’re doomed.
By the way, I have one for measuring the approximate temperature of spiders. I couldn’t find a regular thermometer tiny enough to shove up their bottoms. (Also, they’re not particularly accurate — I’m primarily measuring the approximate temperature of their environment.)
