BACtrack Vio Smartphone Breathalyzer

 

Don’t drink and drive. You’ve probably already heard that a million times, but the question is: do you live it? Some people have a higher tolerance for alcohol as opposed to others, but blood alcohol content (BAC) doesn’t lie. This part isn’t subjective, so if ever you or one of your buddies is in doubt, it’s best to consult with a breathalyzer before making any decisions.

It’s a compact breathalyzer that gives you BAC readings, anytime, anywhere, giving you the info you need when you need it.

The BACtrack works in conjunction with an app and is compatible with most smartphones and tablets. It’s currently on sale for $42.99.

These Shoes Have A Hidden Whisky Compartment

johnnie-tan-leather-brogue

We’re having trouble coming up with scenarios where you might be tempted to wear $500 leather shoes, while simultaneously smuggling a tiny bottle of Johnny Walker scotch. A funeral, maybe? An upper-crust tee-totaler’s box social? We don’t know, and yet there you have it: the Johnnie Tan Leather Brogue, an Italian made, custom-embroidered shoe with an almost-hidden booze compartment.

The limited edition Johnnie Walker Oliver Sweeney Brogue is a footwear first that brings together style, design and flair. The iconic Oxford Style Brogue features a reworked crank to accommodate a Johnnie Walker Red Label miniature in the heel, custom-embroidery, a striding man tattoo, red suede lining in the heel compartment and a transparent top piece to reveal the whisky from below. A sophisticated and progressive alternative to a classic, the Johnnie Walker Oliver Sweeney Brogue will make sure you boldly keep walking.

It’s actually $489 for the shoe, so not quite $500.

OhGizmo! Review: The Vapshot Mini Spirits Vaporizer (Updated)

vapshot-mini-1

Humans have been ingesting alcohol through their stomachs for thousands of years, and it’s worked just fine so far. But it’s the future now, and it’s time to try something different. The Vapshot Mini is a household device that takes spirits and vaporizes them so that you can ingest them through your lungs. That’s right, instead of drinking your booze, you can now breathe it in through a straw! The effects are immediate, since the lungs are a far more effective method of getting things into your bloodstream. And the dynamic of “drinking” with the Vapshot Mini is completely different than regular drinking. It’s a novel experience that we’ve had the pleasure of, well, experiencing for the last couple of weeks. The following article takes a more in-depth look at the machine.

Vapshot Mini Vaporizes Your Favorite Liquor For An Instant Buzz

Screen Shot 2014-08-18 at 9.26.56 PM

The Vapshot Mini is a home-use machine that takes your favourite liquor and vaporizes it so you can consume it through your lungs, rather than through your stomach. This means you feel the effects much more quickly, and actually use much less alcohol to achieve the same blood alcohol concentration. In fact, you’re using about 1/60th of the normal volume of alcohol, which also means you’ll sober up much more quickly; insufflation (the act of blowing vapour into a body cavity, like your lungs) is a much more efficient method of consumption, which explains these particular dynamics (quick to get drunk, quick to sober up, little alcohol use). It’s an entirely different experience than drinking, and doesn’t appear to be as unsafe as some people might have made it out to be. You can use your own spirits, and you will still taste them as you inhale them. It’s $899 for the machine, which comes with two “serving bottles”, which are necessary to consume the vapour.

Powdered Alcohol On The Way? Maybe

powdered-alcohol

Palcohol is a powder than, when mixed with water, will turn it into Vodka or Rum. It’s great for camping trips, for example, where lugging big bottles of liquor can be a pain. Instead, the powdered alcohol will take up less space and weight, and can be mixed with water from a stream, or liquids you bring yourself (like juice). Each packet of Palcohol contains enough powder to make a standard concentration drink, if mixed with 5 ounces of liquid. The company also plans on selling flavoured versions of the powder, so that you may have a full standard drink (like Margaritas, or Cosmopolitans) without needing to add anything more than plain water.

There is some discussion over whether the product is legal for sale in the US, with approval being granted and retracted only 13 days later. Upon closer inspection, it does appear to be a technical issue related to labels, rather than a rejection of the product for sale on US shelves. Which means that if all goes well, you’ll be able to get either type of Palcohol (Vodka or Rum) by this fall, though we’re not sure for how much.

So This is Baby Mice Wine

Mice Wine

Where I’m from, the older generation advises the younger ones who have asthma to drink the soup (if you can call it that) that’s obtained from boiling dried flying lizards in water. Apparently, it can get rid of the wheezing for good. I’m asthmatic, but I’d rather go for my inhaler than a bowl of flying lizard soup any time of day.

Homemade cures and tonics often make use of unusual and sometimes disgusting ingredients. Take the case of this cure-all that many speculate to be of Chinese origin. It’s wine with actual dead baby mice in it. It’s said to be a cure for a variety of diseases, including liver disease and asthma. Preparation sounds relatively simple: drown a dozen or so baby mice (maximum age is three days old) into a bottle of rice wine, and leave it for 12 to 14 months. As for its taste, people who’ve tried it report that it tastes like gasoline.

Baby mice rice wine: Drink at your own risk.
