Coast Guard rescues man running to Bermuda in a ‘bubble’ [photos]
@FoxNews Are you sure that isn't a rogue hamster?

“Rogue hamster.” LOL.
Let’s meet the hamster, Reza Baluchi, who was actually on this “run” for charity:

Does the Coast Guard now bill Baluchi for the rescue or do those costs count as a charitable contribution as well?
Now, was this just a stunt or a preview of how we’ll travel in the future to avoid Ebola?

Could be. And our intrepid runner from Florida isn’t the only one making “bubble” news. Performer Akon is defending the use of a bubble in his act claiming it was not related to any fears over catching Ebola:
This bubble has been apart of my show for years. Way before Ebola existed. Let's try n stop Ebola before it spreads. pic.twitter.com/3vlB8Xvr3C

Yes, let’s stop the spread of Ebola. With bubbles.
