Little Gadget Reminds You That Drunkenness and Sunburns are Bad

Illustration for article titled Little Gadget Reminds You That Drunkenness and Sunburns are Bad

Nothing says "summer" like getting hammered and passing out in the sun, but apparently that's not the healthiest thing you can do. Stupid doctors, thinking they know my body better than I do. Anyways, this little device can tell you just how badly you're damaging your body on two counts. First of all, it's a Breathalyzer, telling just how much of that Natty Ice made it into your bloodstream. Secondly, it's a UV detector, rating how dangerous the sun that you're lying in is to your skin.

Whatever, if I wanted someone to nag me about how my terrible lifestyle is destroying my body I'd move back home with my parents, not pay $34 for a gadget.

First of all, it's a Breathalyzer, telling just how much of that Natty Ice made it into your bloodstream.

Just to prove I can be an obnoxious geek like the rest of them, I feel compelled to mention that this device has no idea how much alcohol is in your bloodstream. That is, unless it has a needle and can pull a blood sample.

A Breathalyzer is a crude method of approximating a blood/alcohol level through analyzing the concentration of alcohol in expired air. Not that I have any experience with anything that might make me familiar with the differences between a Breathalyzer and blood alcohol levels, mind you. :)

That said, I agree with bignaz2k — this could easily fall under the weird combo of the day.
