Something cool against rape...

For anyone who has had their drinks spiked at a nightclub or a party, they know the horrible ordeal that can turn into. Luckily, two inventors in Israel are currently working a special drinking straw that can detect the two most common date rape drugs, ketamine and gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), and will turn a different color if it is dipped into a tainted drink. According to one of the inventors, a chemistry professor at the University of Tel Aviv by the name of Fernando Patolsky, the straw uses a tiny sample of your drink and mixes it with a testing solution, that causes a chemical reaction making the solution cloudy or colored, depending on the drug.

The unfortunate statistic is that one in six females will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime. Hopefully this invention will help greatly reduce that number.
