Preventing drunken missteps

This handy new tool by a Colorado-based web security company promises to prevent those embarrassing moves on the internet after a drunken night (as nothing good happens after 1 AM).
It is called the Social Media test, and it is a free plug-in for Firefox/Google Chrome browsers. Program requires the users of Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Flickr or Tumbl to perform simple coordination tests before allowed to post online. The tests include keeping the cursor inside a moving circle or correctly identifying a set of flashing lights. Failing leads to blocking access to posting. Google also has a similar tool  with math questions, designed to prevent drunken emails.
