I agree with you and have partially solved it by solving another first world problem. What do I do with my old smartphone since I just got this HOT new one? Why take the SIM card out and make it the remote control of course! I have B&N Nook Color running KitKat in the living room and a Galaxy S with KitKat running in the bedroom. Hell some of the cheap Chinese knockoffs are cheaper than some of the smart switches I have seen. You could replace the wall switch with a bunch of them and wire the charger for the device into the wall.

For many drinking MODERATE amounts of alcohol can ease tension and increase confidence (or conversely make you less self-conscience) which usually leads you to do things you wouldn't normally do. Whether this behavior is a blessing or a curse is dependent on the behavior and the circumstance but it will most likely lead to a different outcome than had you not been drinking. So your experiment would be more accurate if you clone yourself and have one of yourselves drinking and the other sober in the same situation.
