'Who Pukes First' App For Iphone?Submitted by Chris Concomitantski on Sat, 09/28/2013 - 15:39
This app doesn't exist yet but I think it should.
Binge drinking among college students costs society billions of dollars as well as many lost lives each year.
Public Service Announcements and awareness campaigns on campuses have done little to stem the binge drinking epidemic. So how about shame?
The idea is an 'app' for iphones and other digital devices that would allow party-goers to 'bet' on which party goer will be the first to puke.
The theory is that if someone knows that someone else is betting on their bad behavior they may not engage in the behavior.
Is there a developer out there who would like to create this? Would college students spend $2 for a copy of this app and 2 more to share? Would it backfire and cause MORE binge drinking?
This is an example of the kind of thing I think about all the time.
