No one likes getting drunk. Anyone who say otherwise is lying or 22 years old. It's the penalty you pay for the extreme fun you have, a raging headache and a day lost to sitting on the couch with a sports drink, salt crackers, and aspirin.

However, is that really the best solution? Because, according to the internet, the official source of everything, there might be a more unique and efficient cure for the typical hangover.

Reddit user, u/Flubber_finder, wanted to hear about:

What is your recommended hangover cure?

I don't drink anymore, but when I used to, my hangover cure was ready salted potato chips, pickles and Coca-Cola. The combination of the sugary drink, the salty, fatty snack and the electrolytes in pickles was just perfect. Gatorade also works.


The Ingredients Of A Safe Morning

Before going to bed: a bottle of Gatorade, a banana, and two aspirin.

Morning of: Sausage McMuffin with Egg, hash brown, and orange juice.


Fight The Urge To Fall Asleep

This is more for prevention, but when I get home from drinking I always have something to eat and then I stay up for like 2 hours in bed lol. It's hard not to just crash, but I swear it works for me.


Pineapple? Pineapple.

Drink water. Eat poached egg on toast with a generous sprinkle of salt. Have a glass of pineapple juice and a strong coffee. Drink more water and wash two painkillers down with a bottle of beer. Drink more water.


Doesn't Say It Was Only For Kids



Tried this on a trip to the US. It tastes absolutely vile, but damn, it did the trick.


In THAT Order

Turn the shower on. Chug 2 bottles of water, throw up. Get in the shower. Then go get greasy food and delete all my drunk texts.


In that order?


Yeah. The shower goes on first so my parents don't hear me throwing up. Water before throwing up to help the throwing up process. Shower to meditate n revive myself. Food to replenish my nutrients. Then texts last because before that, I'm too embarrassed to even look.


Time. Just Take Time.


Early twenties and a fry up or hair of the dog would have you sorted for the day.

Roll forward a couple of decades and you need days to recover.


Clear The Pathways

Think of all the ways you can make something come out of your body. Do all of those. Toilet, blow your nose, have an orgasm, turn on a hot shower if only to make yourself sweat a bit. Basically clear out all the pipes you can, then drink a lot of water and take a nap. Nothing works better for me.


Pho Show

Drink a sh-t ton of water before sleeping. Then do that again right when you wake up. Take a hot shower. When you're ready for food, go get pho or eat something fast food related.

I've been into wingstop atm for hangovers.


Sometimes, You Can't Fight The Passage Of Time

Since I hit 42 years old, I get crippling hangovers. 2 or 3 large glasses of water before I go to sleep makes an incredible difference though, followed by 6-8 hours of sleep. If I forget to drink the water, just f-cking shoot me please.


When All Else Fails...

Only done it once, but my god is it effective.

I couldn't get anything down for breakfast, puked before getting in the car to go to the wedding, fell asleep in the backseat on the way there, basically felt like death as I stumbled out when we arrived. My friend walks up to me and shoves some froofroo bellini bullsh-t into my hand and says "drink." I try to tell her that I cannot even THINK about alcohol today. She gives me the icy you-will-obey stare. "DRINK."

30 minutes later I'm human again. 2 hours after that I'm playing sloshball/kickball in the rain with a full champagne bottle in hand. Great wedding.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
