If you're worried about your date slipping a roofie in your drink, go home.

There are always going to be evil people in the world who will attack you if given the chance, but when you believe it's so certain that you wear drug-detecting nail polish, you might just want to stay home. It'll help with the stress.

what if I slip myself roofies and then use my left hand? huh?

This product, if well executed and effective, is an absolutely brilliant idea.


Report that, Joe Threadshortenerpants.

I've been out drinking for almost 2 decades and no one has ever tried to drug me.

Am I just that unattractive?

Clever and useful.  Good jord, kids.  Also, if you need to drug somebody to get them to have sex with you, they're not having sex with you and you'd probably f*ck road kill and you should turn all your gas burners on and go to bed.

So it'll go down one of two paths: it'll never actually happen. just like the cups and straws from DrinkSavvy on Indiegogo, or it'll cost so much that no mere mortal could afford more than one bottle without a 30 year payment plan

/I guess it could also be a shiatty nail polish
//also I wonder what color it changes your nail polish to...and what if you happened to be wearing that color of nail polish that night?

What you're saying is this: there will always be problems in the world, so there's no point in solving them, even if it works. Better to let people get raped. You disgust me.

Nah, I interpreted it more as "don't try new things that might make it easier for some people to take and keep control of what happens to them".

"The problem isn't that women don't know when there are roofies in their drink; the problem is people putting roofies in their drink in the first place,"

This is a pretty blatant rape culture tactic here. Why develop this and put the onus on women when they could easily make a nail polish for rapists that makes them not rape?

I'd always dip my middle finger just to be extra theatrical upon positive result.

The nail polish caught the eye of an investor who paid out $100,000 at the K50 Startup Showcase for the product demo of Undercover Colors.
They also won $11,250 from a contest held by North Carolina State's Entrepreneurship Initiative.

Donate to Undercover Colors.

But if they read your statement as intended and didn't try to make it sound like you're defending rape, then they wouldn't have anything to be morally outraged about.

I think the point was " if you are so farking paranoid that you feel the need to test your drink, with your nail polish, you should stay home (and seek help*)

I suppose, if these drugs are actually as widespread as we're being told to believe. It seems that alcohol is enough on its own, though, as it's the sole drug in the majority of drugged rape cases.

No, you're moving the goalposts. People in your opinion shouldn't leave their homes if there's the slightest concern that something bad could happen, yet your bootstrappy attitude leads me to believe you don't buy stamps without a gun hidden under your petticoat.

If you believe the risk of someone drugging your drink is so high that you need to carry your own water testing kit, either you're clinically paranoid, or you need to move far, far away.

But they're not that widespread. Date rape drugs are pretty much a myth.

I remember seeing a study a while back from a UK hospital. They kept track of all women who came in claiming to have been drugged over the course of a year. Of those, not a single one tested positive for date rape drugs of any kind, a majority were at double the drink-drive limit or higher, and a fourth or a fifth tested positive for cocaine or amphetamines (though none of the women admitted to using them).

Anyway what happens if the drink isn't drugged? Now you made a perfectly good drink taste like nail polish.

Worse yet, the chemical testing agents in the nail polish are alcohol soluble and cause you to go into a catatonic state.

1. Rape apologists in thread? We have this many Republicans on Fark?

2. Do they have a men's equivalent? I mean, she might be after my kidneys or spleen. I don't want to color one of my nails though. Can it be like a plastic cocktail sword that changes color like a pregnancy test?

I haven't seen any rape apologists here. Just people saying this is a stupid product for people who are probably too scared to leave the house anyway lest the rape fairies get them.

Depending on how tired I am, one beer can knock me out. I also get partial amnesia if woken from such a state.
Luckily I'm married, and thus cannot be raped.

Another way to look at the product is that it might be fun and useful for a young, inexperienced girl in a party scene to give her confidence and feel like she has control over her safety.  Two thoughts are that confident girls are a good thing for everyone and that party scenes can be sketchier than most because of the perception that predators equate to rape faeries. Hopefully some women more experienced in these types of environs will be along to femsplain it to you in the morning.

Whoa whoa whoa.

It's actually pretty cool that they'd make nail polish useful. The problem is they chose date rape drugs, with are a super rare occurrence, instead of something like botulism and ecoli toxins which can be a daily threat if you like sushi.


Hell, I'D by and wear the nail polish that let me know if fish was safe to eat. Had food poisoning once. Would much rather be Xanaxed.

Well, to be fair; the most common thing for a drink to be spiked with is alcohol, which the tests obviously can't distinguish from a normal alcoholic drink.

Actual, verifiable incidents of drinks being spiked with date-rape drugs is  incredibly rare though. The panic over it is roughly analogous to the panic over razor blades in Halloween candy - people seem to want it to be a thing for some reason.
