Nail Polish Can Now Detect Date Rape Drugs

By Sgt. Olivia Betchson

So you’ve probably already heard but in case you haven’t, your regular getting ready routine might include putting on nail polish. Not because you want to flaunt your nail art in the club, but because four male NC State students are developing a nail polish that will be able to detect the presence of date rape drugs in your drink.


Here’s how it works: You put the nail polish on. Then, when you accept a drink from a SAB at a bar, you stick your finger in the drink and swirl it around inconspicuously. If your nail polish changes color, throw the drink in his face and scream bloody murder, then call the cops, because you just narrowly avoided getting roofied.

Everyone’s hailing this nail polish as the long-needed solution to finally stop rape. And I agree that although dipping your finger in your vodka soda might look kind of stupid, it’s better than crossing your fingers and hoping for the best. But let’s stop pretending the only people who commit rape are creepers lurking in the shadows, ready to put molly all in your champagne and you ain’t even know it. Let’s not forget the #1 date rape drug is alcohol. So while again it’s better than nothing at all, I think it's a bit premature to parade around like we’ve finally put an end to rape for good. What about: boxers, that when the guy puts them on, change color to tell the girl if he’s a rapist? OK, it’s a work in progress, let’s stick to the nail polish for now.

Sidenote: I wonder how much they’re going to charge for this shit.
