Disposable dipper to detect "date rape" drug is launched. Now if only we could get something that would detect whether or not the person we're dating is being unfaithful. Well, I guess holding a gun to his/her head and asking them will have to continue to do...

The best cure for the unfaithful thing is an open relationship. No worries then.

...I saw "disposable clipper" and was wondering what the heck was being clipped off for testing...

It was "diaper". I swear on my mother's virginity.

I was just thinking that a disposable diaper would be a great rape deterrent.

The "don't let creepy nervous looking guys next to your drink" method works too.

"It will allow people to test a drink if they're suspicious, because they perhaps left it unattended or it tastes odd."

If you find out your drink has some bennies after you've already drank it, you may need some of those "disposable diapers"

One more vote for "diaper". I don't hold much faith in Freud, but I am wondering what this says about us.

A Dr. Langer, of Harley Street, once prescribed Rohypnol for my insomnia. I tried it when I first flew from Lisbon to Los Angeles. I didn't actually sleep, mind you. Just your basic catatonia. I did drool all the way, though. The flight attendants had to mop my spittle every thirty seconds for fourteen hours.

Sexy, huh?

People who give Rohypnol to other people they think they'd like to quietly ravage should consider this first-hand experience and then kill themselves.

Miguel - That Wasn't spittle!

Sorry, I know the topic is too serious to treat so lightly, but I just couldn't resist.

Why are they *just now* making progress on this? Especially considering how long drugging's been around... Idgits.

Sorry, I'm bitter.

I was just at a club, where the ambulance had to be called because, ostensibly, someone on GHB went into cardiac arrest, vomited and shit themselves.

My first reaction was that that didn't sound like GHB. Anyone have any thoughts on the matter?

Another case for the daiper.

Aside from the shitting yourself part, that all sounds about right.
