Yeah - here's a better idea, it's called PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY! That's what keeps me from getting drunk and doing stupid things. It's not someone else's responsibility to do that.....it's mine.
ok why not this

This is pretty good considering most people cannot remember phone numbers these days and they simply go to that person in their contact list. Even if they wanted to drunk dial someone, they probably won't even know their number! Great app

Think it could be a better idea to have a contact person to discourage you from getting drunk?

Heaven forbid we should not learn from our mistakes, especially in our youth. Texting is such a poor method of communication to begin with.

Seriously?! How about just not getting drunk in the first place? How about being RESPONSIBLE for your actions? WHY is this news? And WHY is this being celebrated as some sort of achievement? This makes UVA look like a school of drunkards.

Really? They might have started with an app that doesn't let you drink until you're of legal age!

Then a 2nd app that gives you a kick in the *ss when you've reached your limit. Then you wouldn't have to worry about consequences.

A truly intelligent person, however, would understand "personal responsibility."

Can someone create an app that lets us know when the next "UVA Student Creates an App!" NBC29-sponsored infomercial is about to air?

It has that reputation because it is. I mean please, who would want to go through life sober knowing you'll end up with a sheepskin from UVA. OH pshaw.

You think that's cool you should check out DrunkLock. It will prevents you from sending calls or text messages while you are drunk until you answer a series of basic math questions. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details...
