Ever wanted to imbibe a spirit and let the rush and buzz sweep over you, and then not have to worry about acting like a drunken fool or waking up the next day with a killer headache?

researchers at the Imperial College London are seeking to make a real world Synthehol-like beverage for guilt-free enjoyment. The research is led by Professor David Nutt [of course it is], considered by most to be Britain's top drugs expert.

Professor Nutt's team is focusing on chemicals similar to Valium that work on the same nerves as alcohol, giving a "buzzed" feeling of wellbeing and relaxation. The selected candidate could be quickly switched off by ingesting a chemical counter-agent, allowing partiers to safely drive home. The novel drug also is being designed not to affect the mood centers of the brain which alcohol incidentally triggers.

It's scheduled to hit the market the day of your wake so your mourners can make drunken fools of themselves and then drive home safely. A week after that the drug that cures what killed you will go on sale unless, of course, you were killed in a drive-by.
