If there’s one liquid capable of getting two people freely — maybe a little too freely — communicating, it’s vodka. And now, you can send text messages with your 80-proof, acetone-flavored breath.

Researchers at York University were able to successfully send and receive the lyrics to “O Canada” by evaporating vodka and using different concentrations of vapor to signify ones and zeros.

But before you start shaking and stirring your way to the world’s first slurred operating system, keep in mind that there are limits. It has to be within a closed space so that the vapor doesn’t drift away unreceived. And you probably have to drink enough vodka to drown a Kossack to breathe your way halfway through “www.bangbros.com” in binary.

But it should make drunk texting easier.
