B-but I love to make a fool of myself!

This week's award for the most pointless medical research project goes to... the stay-sober pill.

Australian researchers have developed a pill that keeps you sober, no matter how much you drink by shutting down the cells in the brain which absorb alcohol in the blood.

In tests for the drug, mice given the drug did not even display signs of getting tipsy, despite being fed enough alcohol to make them stumble and fall over.
The research paves the way for a tablet that stops people embarrassing themselves on nights out - but where's the fun in that?

Road trip?
