Brave New Alcohol: Vodka Pills?
It looks like I may finally have a reason to become a pill popper! Russian scientists have developed a technique that turns alcohol into powder that can be eaten or snorted or packed into a pill form. Translation: alcohol pills are coming soon to a liquor store near you! Whatever your drink of choice is, the technique can solidify all kinds of alcohol, including whiskey, vodka, wine and beer. Think about it. Take your vodka pills to the party or anxiety-provoking family gathering—pop the required dosage for buzzed but not sloppy, and skip the excessive calories, stinky breath, stupid spills, and frequent peeing. It sounds almost too good to be true. But the question on everyone’s mind? Can you also skip the hangover? I’m hoping so. Do I smell a Nobel Prize? [Neatorama]
