the breathalyser lock

'you saved it for a special occasion and this isn't it...'
  [vote for,

You've come by a 1997 Chateau Neuf Du Pape and taken it under advisement that it's a keeper - it can only get better with age, and drunk at a significant juncture in your life.

Trouble is, it's 3am, you were even spotted drinking a bacardi breezer/midori cocktail a short time ago, when you suddenly remember the 97 and greedily descend on it.

Two problems, this definitely isn't a special occasion, and the palate changing properties of the midori mean even if it was, you won't feel the benefit now.

Solution : - nice wine in a cupboard with a breathalyser lock on it. If you're not fit to drive you're not going to get the best out of it.

You can use the breathalyser lock in any situation where you really shouldn't be contemplating doing what you're about to do.

Over to you for scenarios where such a device might prove useful.

       If you're too drunk to drive you're just right to hit on the young nursing coeds.

       and that bottle of CndeP in the cellar might come in handy.

       could you create a breathalyser lock big enough for cranes (climbing not driving)......

       Lock instructions:
Hold down button and blow into lock. If BAC registers more than .08, lock will not open. If BAC registers less than .08, lock will open... except we know you better than that, luecke. Try it again and this time actually blow into the lock... No, put the dog down, that's cheating too

       Yeah, you might want to have a regular lock on it, too, if you've got kids (or untrustworthy people) in the house. [+]
