Reminds of how when it snows in frikin Colorado, my Swiss mother-in-law always says: "OH! It snowed back home!" Yeah, as if Colorado is anywhere near Massachusetts. Stupid European bullshit -- Europeans are honestly at least as stupid as Americans. Give them something that isn't really close to where they live and they'll flunk the test with flying colors. As if they even understand how the European Union functions.

Re: YouTube Of The Day

This is a reply to Spanky's video about the cop doing the drink driving test. Amazing. But it begs the question - why haven't the cops in the US heard of a breath test? Blow in the bag or count to 10 and you are on your way. INstead they make people do dances and walk lines. Unbelieveable.

By the way guys - if you post a youtube vid just give us a little bit of text about what it is and why you liked it, otherwise we might as well just go to the youtube site and browse ourselves.

Often because people challenge the results of those breathalyzer tests, but of course they still use them. It is typically necessary to produce video evidence of them being idiots to substantiate things in court if the citation is challenged. This is just my guess, as one always hears about challenges made against the breathalyzer test. However, I really do not think this whole dancing thing is typically -- could very well be faked, or just one of those rare cops being an idiot.

A breathtest is just a general indicator. Because it doesn't stand up in court they are then taken to the station for a blood test which does stand up in court. At least that's how it works elsewhere and much less time consuming than walking lines, filming idiots or repeating the alphabet backwards. I'm sure there's a blood test in the US as well and the strength of their case rests on more than videos like that...

Re: YouTube Of The Day

I believe it has a lot to do with US law. I believe in many states a breath test can only be administered after someone fails a sobriety test.

I would say walking lines is less time consuming and less expensive than a blood test, especially if you are stopped on a stretch of interstate highway (i.e. motorway). This video, and the drunk man in it, look rather rural, so I would presume it would have taken quite some time to get to a station if it is real.

Perversion for Profit! Circa 1965, an anti-pornography propaganda film. I'm still laughing after seeing this one.
