I can't even remember the last time I drank anything with a straw...

I think it's a chick-drick thing (i.e.; them "fruity-coladas").

As with any new idea or invention, there is a lot that can go wrong, whether it's a device glitch or a human glitch.  It wouldn't surprise me if some nutjob attempted to make drugs that could "beat the straw."  I still think the impetus behind the idea is sound, though, and is a step in the right direction.

I imagine it's difficult to get the measurements and reactions just right so that there are very few (hopefully no) false negatives and positives - but then even chemical contraception is not 100% effective. I can see this becoming a massive headache if it isn't tested enough. I also don't see people using this responsibly.

I could also see a ton of women not using this because they would be worried that it would offend their date.

Well here's a practical question:  Who the heck carries around their own straw?  Don't the drinking establishments usually provide that?

I assume it'd rank somewhere between asking your date if s/he has a STD and asking if that spare tire around your date's stomach is for a truck or a van. In other words, Tuesday night for me.

Some OCD people like carrying their own utensils and stuff around. You probably can't do so without looking like some sort of neurotic though.

I'd probably turn lesbian for that kinda cheddar.

Still kinda sad I guess.

Ah well, pretty Asian lady inside, Yoda, click.

Can't they put a phone number in that article?
Hell, I'd take the challenge.

(do you still get the 63kk if you ménage à trois the whole thing?)

After a police chase, a man commits suicide on live camera.
The site warns it's graphic, but it's so far away.

Still, kinda weird to see someone "in the process" of dying like that. =/

I like how the presenter has the balls to admit they messed up and apologizes for it.
