Authorities say a vibrating device that claims to fights wrinkles as it rolls over a person's face has forced a Southwest Airlines flight to evacuate in New Mexico, the AP reports. Albuquerque Aviation Police tell news station KOB-TV that passengers were ordered off the plane Monday after the anti-aging skin roller was discovered in the back of a seat. Authorities say the flight crew moved the item to the galley, and police searched the plane. No other suspicious items were found, and no arrests were made. (Read more strange stuff stories.)
