Drunk Dialing no more.

This is just wrong. A Cell phone that has a built in breathalizer!

Here's how it works: Users blow into a small spot on the phone, and if they've had too much to drink the phone issues a warning and shows a weaving car hitting traffic cones.

Well that’s great because now you don’t have to guess if you get pulled over whether or not you are over the limit. That’s actually pretty cool. On the other hand I can see a bunch of college kids sitting around seeing who can get the highest blood alcohol level before passing out. Trust me one this. When I was in college one of the bars had a breathalizer station by the door. I routinely saw guys going over to see who could score the highest.

There is one down side to this phone.

If you have a blood alcohol level over .08, the phone will not let you dial that person. So it not only promotes sobriety, but chastity — and probably your dignity, as well.

WHAT?!?!?!?! No way! As many of you know, I have an adverse reaction to talking on the phone. As in I hate talking on the phone. I despise, loathe and am repulsed by having to do so. At work I’m more likely to walk to someone’s desk to talk to them then to pick up the phone and call. If someone call’s my home, I’ll let Ktreva answer the phone. Yet, when I’m drinking, sometimes I like to pick a random number and just call it. Just for the fun of it. This phone would take that joy away from me… and the joy of having drunks call me.

I heard that on the radio yesterday. Damn - it's not like I get to do it all that much...but still.

However they did put a good twist on it when they were talking about it. It SHOULD show how drunk the person calling you really is, that way you can prepare yourself accordingly! ;-)

Nope, don't want to know you are drunk calling me... just wanna figure it out myself. ;-)
