I knew I was onto something!

My fav line is at the bottom:

Though the research was funded by beer makers Guinness and Labatt, the researchers said this had no effect on the study's outcome, the AP reported.

ugggh

Cap'n I have the worst hangover ever. Did you have to post that today? I guess I should have gone with the one drink maximum that they prescribed.

Hey, Schnurren - you know what the best thing for a hangover is?

Not drinking the night before. [Wink]

Actually - I got it arse upwards, didn't I? The best thing for a hangover is to drink loads the night before.

My partier lessons (i.e. high school) taught me one great thing. There are two very good methods to avoid a hangover.

1. Smoke lots o' pot while drinking.

2. Drink for 3 days straight.

Both of these methods will keep that hangover away. Or perhaps you already feel so bad by the time you pass out that the hangover just doesn't matter. [Big Grin]

I would strongly advise AGAINST this, especially if you are planning on drinking quite a bit. See, pot is a wonderful cure for nausia, but mixing pot with alcohol (well, large amounts of alcohol at least) can be very deadly. As many of you know, after drinking a lot of alchy, one tends to vomit a portion of that alchy back out. The reason your body does this is because it is expelling the poison that you just ingested!

Now, if you've been poking smot, your stomach will be much much much more tolerant of the alcohol you drink. The pot could easially supress your vomit reaction and if you keep drinking your body won't have that last-ditch vomit reaction to keep you from giving yourself alcohol poisioning.

My solution to the hangover problem is to just cut the alcohol out of the equation... pot won't give you a hangover. [Big Grin] Second option is to toke the morning after, as it will alleviate most (or all) of your hangover symptoms.

We managed 12 days on the beer last year. After that I couldn't drink for 3 months, that said if you carry on drinking over a space of time you don't get hungover just very very ill.

This is true... [shake head]

The week before school - my and my friends thought we'd celebrate going back (Yes, I know, it's lame, but we party for anything [Razz] )

Stayed at a different house every night, spent sooo much money on alcohol and by about day three two had dropped out. The rest of us lasted for a weeny six and a bit days. Oh, and I felt terrible going back to school [Smile]
