We have a man at Disney World refusing to have his temperature checked and then being charged with trespassing, handcuffed, and escorted out of the premises.
A man who was arrested after refusing a temperature screening at Disney Springs in Florida told authorities that he couldn’t be told to leave because he had spent $15,000 on his vacation.
The man, Kelly Sills, a tourist from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, bypassed the Orlando attraction’s medical screening in February and refused to get his temperature checked when asked by Disney employees, according to a report from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
Sills also claimed to be a Disney stockholder at another point.
What is surprising is that he was wearing a mask. For some reason, having his temperature taken with the remote sensor that takes a couple of seconds, tops, was too much for him. Did he know he had a temperature and not want it revealed? Or did he think that the thermometer was sending radiation towards him? Some people do believe this, not understanding that the thermometer measures radiation coming from the person.

I’d say “it’s just a fucking camera!” But some idiots believe cameras steal your soul or some dumb shit.
At some point I just give up trying to understand some people because the cognitive dissonance is so strong it makes me nauseous just trying to wrap my brain around it.
See -- it was stealing his precious bodily radiations.
Wearing a mask at Disney in the next best thing to a real Mickey Mouse costume.
If you have $15,000 to spend for a trip to disney, you’re either crazy or you have too much money, or both.
publicola: I don’t have kids, and I just don’t understand the worship of Disney. Now…the animation and movies can be great, but this aching NEED to worship the treacly sweet mythology of the theme parks has always left me a little queasy.
