Good Idea: A Date-Rape Drug Detecting Straw

Seen here about to spike a woman's Mai Tai with a tropical Skittle, a creeper creeps on an unsuspecting pair of women. But thankfully, the straw, that, while normally clear, will turn cloudy in the presence of date-rape drugs GHB, ketamine and, after some further testing, roofies. A great idea, even if it isn't bendy.

It's the brainchild of Professor Fernando Patolsky and Doctor Michael Ioffe, both from Tel Aviv University's school of chemistry.


They haven't decided on the final design of the date rape drug detector (it could be a stirrer instead of a straw) but so far in testing, it's been 100% accurate with no false positives. Anytime they slip a date rape drug inside the drink, the straw detects it...With proper funding they hope to become commercially available in a year and a half.

Not even being able to imagine how big a f***ing failure at life it takes to resort to drugs and rape to have sex (YOU ARE ROCK BOTTOM -- KILL YOURSELF ALREADY), I'm all for this idea. I'm also all for any woman who's convinced her drink's been spiked to give it to me -- I'll finish that shit. Just consider me a knight in shining armor. One who wakes up with no concept he was rescuing princesses the night before. So maybe more like a superhero.

Thanks to mike and Ellen, who agree date-rapists should all be sent to battle lions for their freedom but then shot afterwards regardless.

  • We were discussing this idea yesterday, however looks like you beat my friend Lloyd to the punch.
    I know of five people this has happened to in the past six months
    alone. And they are used to roll people for money as well, not just date
    rape. Great idea - will buy for my daughters for sure.
