Covid-19 Fever Detecting Infrared Camera "They Live" Prank.

Insulating face makeup painted such that wearer looks like those aliens from the classic movie on an IR camera.
  [vote for,

In the great movie "They Live", aliens appear human to the naked eye but can be seen as what they actually look like when viewed through special glasses.

By using insulating makeup applied at various thicknesses and contact lenses to vary the apparent heat signature of the face, the creepy scull and bug eye faces of the aliens could be recreated when viewed through IR cameras. Obviously the makeup would be colored to look like a regular face so as to appear normal to the naked eye.

Watch the look on the security guards face. Laugh. Repeat.

       It would be a major improvement on how I look on bad, humid hair days already...so yay for the upgrade.

       I've noticed that those ideas which exhibit the highest first derivative of pastry against time have the shortest comment threads. It's as if we've taken the old saying, "If you can't think of anything nice to say, don't say anything at all", and reversed it.

       I agree with myself!

       A truly great idea speaks for itself making excessive commentary redundant for those poor souls who (biting their lip wishing it was theirs) wish to bask in its glory by association with an anno.. & [8th] stole the only truly appropriate response by dint of getting in first.

       I agree.

       A very agreeable crowd. How does anything get done around here anyway?

       It's high time we probed those aliens right back!
doctorremulac3, Aug 08 2020

       Make sure you probe them left front, too- they hate that.   

       // How does anything get done around here anyway? //   

       Apparently we are expected to do pretty much all of it, according to [poc] that is.
