I found this interesting little titbit whilst researching Edwardian Train Timetables and the hobbies of Pol Pot, it first appeared in 2009 - obviously the wonderfully named Professor Nutt didn't actually succeed with his experiments. Or did he? - anyone know? :look:

The new substance could have the added bonus of being "switched off" instantaneously with a pill, to allow drinkers to drive home or return to work.

The synthetic alcohol, being developed from chemicals related to Valium, works like alcohol on nerves in the brain that provide a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation.

But unlike alcohol its does not affect other parts of the brain that control mood swings and lead to addiction. It is also much easier to flush out of the body.

Finally because it is much more focused in its effects, it can also be switched off with an antidote, leaving the drinker immediately sober.

The new alcohol is being developed by a team at Imperial College London, led by Professor David Nutt, Britain's top drugs expert who was recently sacked as a government adviser for his comments about cannabis and ecstasy.

Aahhhh Webby, a fellow timetable enthusiast. What's your favourite?

I'm also into Zulu translations of familiar English swear words. And dying my pubes in the style of various national flags.

:D

Oh. Yeah, I'll get me some of those alco-antidote pills; Might be an idea for me to take some before posting on here
