Online Breathalyzer Authentication

Protect your online reputation from yourself.
  [vote for,

It takes quite an effort to establish a reputation in an online community- that can all be dashed in a single night if you log on to a forum and post under the influence.

I propose an authentication mechanism that not only uses existing userid/password cryptography, biometrics, whatever, but also adds a breathalizer to ensure that you are within tolerable limits to post.

I was going to do one about urinalysis logon to detect THC, but I got hungry and distracted.

Zimmy's suggesting something like this in an annotation. Built-in_20breathalyzer

Yes to the lower limit! You can be too sober to post.

       I wonder how many "Attach breathalyzer to x" ideas there are here - it has the potential for memery.   

       I remember having a conversation with a friend of mine about some kind of cash-point breathalyzer that stopped you from withdrawing vast sums of cash during stupid times of the day in order to purchase more booze, gain entry to dubious nightclubs, or to squander on wanton gambling at a casino.   

       We decided that cash machines should either have some level of manual dexterity built into their operation designed to shun the most inebriated - or, that the machine should squirt a nauseating gas at you, which, under severe chemical stress, you body may interpret as the final straw and end your night for you in a ball of retching misery. A ball of retching misery that's saved themselves £100.
