    With all the fall healthcare conferences and other things we travel for this time of year, you might want to pay special attention to this blog!

    Who knew that going through TSA could lead to getting a colonoscopy? (Though I've had a few pat downs that were so thorough that they've been close to one!)

    I guess odder things could lead to healthcare screenings but this one is a real, um, “gem.” A couple of jewel thieves went to Thailand to attend a large gem show and attempted to pull off the heist of the year. Asking to see a 6-carat diamond worth over $278,000, the pair apparently switched it out with a fake and took off with the real one.

    The diamond's owner immediately spotted the counterfeit and called security at this heavily guarded event. However, after fully searching the couple, no diamond could be found and they were let go.

    The police, still suspecting these two, alerted airport security to be on the lookout for when the couple attempted to leave the country. They were “randomly” selected to have their bags searched but no diamond showed up. But not so fast: During the TSA X-Ray screening, the diamond showed up in the woman's large intestine.
