New security doors at Swedish National Police headquarters are embarrassing portly users. Designed to let only one person through at a time, the doors have a built-in scale. Those weighing more than 230 pounds are greeted with a recorded voice telling them: "Stop! One at a time," and they are not allowed to enter, according the Associated Press. The security doors were supposed to be set at 350 pounds. "We'll have to get that fixed," said police spokeswoman Linda Widmark.
