My Red Light is Flashing

Radiation Level:  .08

Listening To:  Murder of Birds by Jesca Hoop

Poor Lindsay.  Her alcohol monitoring bracelet started flashing at an MTV Video Awards after party, I guess red’s not her color.  She claims she wasn’t drinking.  What the f*ck is going on here?

I googled Scram false positives and the web is full of them.  Apparently things like hair spray, some lotions, eating sourdough bread can all cause a false positive to occur.  These are all things that could be found at an MTV awards after party.

Then I was curious how the darn thing works.  Here’s a video if you’re curious too.

Loved the image of sliding a playing card between the Scram and the person’s leg.  Also the image of a mom playing with her baby, finally sober.  Thank you Scram, for repairing this family.

I know that alcoholism is a serious problem, but I also think relying on lousy technology to monitor these things is also a problem.   So many things really only sort of work.  My iPhone is on AT&T and I can’t get reception in my house, in Beverly Hills and in Santa Monica.  Yeah.  We’ll see how this plays out and if this was in fact a false positive or if that Crystal champagne was just too tempting.
