(KTVI)- Kids in Pacific, Mo. can find out what it is like to be drunk without ever touching alcohol thanks to the Fatal Vision Brand goggles. The glasses distort your vision, giving the wearer a sense of what it is like to be intoxicated.

Pacific Police DARE officer Steven Zapolski had students from Zitzman Elementary, Truman Elementary, And St. Bridget's Catholic School wear the goggles and try to do something simple --  like walk on a line and sit in a chair.

I wore them,  along with Officer Zapolski. We tried to give each other a high-five. It did not go well.
