Mutant Worm Created That Can't Get Drunk

26 posts in this topic

A mutant worm that can never get drunk has been created by scientists.

They changed a neuron channel to block the effects of alcohol - and believe the discovery could be used to develop a drug to stop humans getting drunk.

Such a drug would be useful for alcoholics, as it would counteract the addictive intoxication feeling caused by alcohol.

The drug could also be used to win beerfest! Think of the possibilities people.

I've known some women who had this mutation. It's impressive to witness... but not to finance.

27 years ago I wagered my brother that worms would always be able to become intoxicated.

Who would have thought that a day such as this would ever arrive?

The horror.

you want to get an alcoholic to take a pill that will make him stay sober?

good luck with that....

(i suppose you could always slip it into his beer on the sly- an anti-mickey*)

My worm can wiggle and is highly motivated to procreate when it’s drunk.

Imagine the DWI defense attorneys having a field day with that one.

Once you master Das Boot you'll have it made. :-)

yaaayyy worms!!

see! do worms want to be cured of their alcohol dependancy??

i bet if you asked one, they'd say 'no, they enjoy getting drunk, why do you think we GET drunk? for the taste?!

VEGETABLE RIGHTS & PEACE MAN!

.

(oh, and spare a thought for all those worms that want to get p***ed because they've outwitted the birds, the fishermen, and the callous gardener, just for some buzz-kill scientist to come along and ruin it for 'em....)

Well worms do feed on the fallen fruits of various flora which no doubt ripen and ferment on the ground under various natural conditions, I think worms probably do get drunk - they might even be prone to being complete alcoholics depending on their particular "terrritory" and diet.

My momma always said she didn't have to worry about a man getting me drunk and taking advantage of me. :blush:

She trained me well. :lol:

Wait, so it only stops the neurological effects of alcohol. It would mean you get all the damage to your digestive system and liver, kidneys and skin etc, but just not get drunk? Seems pretty pointless. Now create magic worms that can be turned into pills to make me drunk with none of the physical damaging effects of alcohol and I'll be 1st in line to test it!
