Pharmaceutical applications could include a "James Bond drug" that would help a spy drink an opponent under the table and walk away without being shaken or stirred, according to Pierce-Shimomura.

Riiiight. So no use whatsoever. Hopefully, this research leads to something more realistic.

Well, where's the fun in that!??

Cool!  Now I can simply enjoy alcohol for the taste!

I believe we already discovered this.  It's called non-alcoholic beer and you can't find any because nobody actually drinks it.

Alcohol mostly tastes like arse. If I'm going to drink, it better darn well get me drunk.

Science is great when it's used to completely miss the farking point.

The pill that makes you not drunk before you drive home was secondary to this?

Oh good, now they can work on preventing weed from getting me stoned and sex from making me jizz.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Worms?

Nah.. Doesn't have the same ring to it.

This is the greatest idea since decaffeinated coffee.

The article wasn't exactly crystal clear on which effects still linger.  I mean, It's still alcohol.  It's essentially a palatable poison.  What's to stop certain people from drinking themselves to death in one sitting without the safety mechanism that lets their bodies know it's time to quit?

I only put up with the taste of acloholic beverages, and then only some of them, because they make me drunk. I can think of a couple of uses for this, but they are pretty limited.

Mutant worms? How about a big order of FARK THAT, with a side of OMGWTF SCIENTISTS! You guys are so busy figuring out if you can do this, instead of figuring out if you should.

/So who else is watching "The Strain"?

Hey, Scientists, why not figure out a solution that eliminated hangovers and liver damage whilst allowing people to get buzzed/drunk. AUTOMATIC NOBEL PRIZE.

You mean I can continue to endure my horrific middle-age hangovers while avoiding that pesky "buzz" while drinking the night before? Sign me up!

Vampire worms, I'm calling it :|

That's called "a college diploma".
