Scientists Can Now Send Text Messages Using Vodka

Text messages. You can't live with 'em. You can't live without 'em. Well, maybe only the latter is true. Living without good satellite coverage is certainly difficult. However will you find out if someone thought that cat picture you sent was lol-worthy or not? Don't worry. Scientists have long searched for a new way to send text messages when coverage is a problem. The solution? Vodka.

It's true. A research team from York University in Canada figured out how to use everyone's favorite hangover causer to send a text message. Now you can send drunk texts using the same substance that got you there in the first place! Paradoxical but fun. Essentially it works by a receiver that measures minute levels of the alcohol, which then translates into the text messages.

This won't be replacing the current method anytime soon, but it could be implemented in remote areas one day in the future. In the meantime, you can always use your vodka stores to clean up dirty nickels or something.
