Finally, scientists are working on something that will actually contribute to society. No more wasting everyone’s time trying to save the environment and cure diseases, they are working to give the people a real game-changer. I’m of course talking about the ability to drink a million beers and not want to jump off a bridge the following morning. According to The Independent, that glorious, hangover-free day is coming.
A new type of synthetic alcohol has been discovered which could allow people to enjoy the sociable effects of a few pints, but skip the hangover that usually follows.
The new drink, known as ‘alcosynth’, is designed to mimic the positive effects of alcohol but doesn’t cause a dry mouth, nausea and a throbbing head, according to its creator Professor David Nutt.
The Imperial College Professor and former government drugs advisor told The Independent he has patented around 90 different alcosynth compounds.
Two of them are now being rigorously tested for widespread use, he said – and by 2050, he hopes alcosynth could completely replace normal alcohol.
This is absolutely fantastic news. Not only will alcosynth give you a buzz, it also won’t damage your liver or heart. If only this stuff could prevent you from drunk texting your ex, then it’d really be perfect.
I just wish I didn’t have to wait till 2050 for alcosynth to rescue me from my godawful hangovers. My hangovers are already getting worse and worse, so I can’t even imagine how brutal a 2049 hangover is going to be. I might need a month’s bed rest to recuperate from a night out by then.
