I was going to make a joke about how it must be hard to hate a baby, but then I saw that subby didn't even get the guy's age right.

Modmins, be a dear and patch that up for brainfartmitter.

He definitely did not age well. I know 2.74 year olds who look younger than him.


Brainfart aside, I like it. +1 because I'm feeling generous this morning, Subby.

Well, that might be a Fark first -- the joke got edited out of the headline.

Would it be closer to say that he would've been Kennedy's greatest nemesis if he hadn't swam away and hid behind his lawyer buddy?

I wish police would stop putting good people in jail for driving drunk and having a little fun, and just install drunk driving lanes. There would be no speed limit, and the walls would be like the tubes used for bumper bowling.

The origins of the breathalyser go back to 1927, when a police surgeon in Marlborough persuaded a suspect to inflate a football bladder by breathing into it. By measuring the ethanol content of the exhaled air, the surgeon was able to testify in court that the man was "50 per cent drunk".

One of the better gadget origin stories I've heard.

While reading your link, I ran across this little tid-bit:
In March 2005 a 59-year-old accused drunk driver in Ontario tried to foil a police breathalyzer by stuffing his mouth full of feces.

The whole point of the penny is not to change the test... but to get the test thrown out in court when you announce you had a penny under your tongue... I doubt the judge will be like, "no, MythBusters covered that...."

I have one in my car right now. You cant beat it, Its really sensitive. Red Bull or peppermint candy wiill make it angry. Just get a farking cab people. It's tons cheaper.

It sucks when its cold because it wont read right. If you disconnect it an bring it inside overnight and plug it back in in the morning you have to wait 2 minutes for it to initialize. You just cant hop in your ride and turn the key like your used to. Its a major inconvienance. Also it acts up sometimes. One time the screen when blank on it, so I couldn't see if I put my PIN in correctly, yes you have to have a PIN to activate it. So I unplugged it, and it flipped out! Cost me 35 bucks for a remote reset fee and 160 bucks every 2 months to lease the device. Plus you have to blow in it every 15 mins or so, it varies, while your driving. Which is embarassing as fark if youre stuck in traffic and people can see you

Im not crying about it, Im taking my punishment like a man. I brought it on myself. Yes Im a douchebag for even doing it in the first place.

Can't blame it on the plastic, unless you were using it as part of a beer bong.

BTW, protip: if your blood alcohol is .77, you are dead.

As best as I can guess, the Kennedys are representative of the Irish, who are a race? of drunkards? So, you're being very anachronistically racist.

Back in the late 70's, we used these
www.nj-dmv-dwi.com
We use to call them "dial a drunk" because they were not very accurate and you
could fudge the number if it was right on the border (it use to be .010 for a DUI)

It got re-edited and put back in.  WHen I saw it originally it was ".77", then when I opened it later, it was just "77", now it's back to ".77"
