Great, a parental control is a good idea so concerned moms and dads can limit their teen's chances of ruining their life (at least socially).

But this is also good news for the rest of us. Yes, YOU. Turning this filter on can prevent you from making bad decisions at 2 in the morning after a few too many drinks. Does it come with a Breathalyzer? Because it should.
