After a wild night out, you unfortunately have to deal with the repercussions. Those being the dreaded hangover. Everyone has their own technique to deal with hangovers (mine is orange juice and lots of bread), and some of them can be pretty out there. Here are some of the best ones.

u/just_a_firenope asked: What is your go to hangover cure?


Always effective.

Water. Before bed and first thing waking up.

If I plan on drinking I'll put a couple bottles on my nightstand.

A ludicrous amount of water during drinking for me. Like I force myself to drink a ton of water, like 2-3 cups per drink or more. I pee a ton but even if I'm super drunk I'll wake up just fine in the morning with little to no hangover. Water and staying hydrated is the key.

Solid tip.

Pedialyte is my ultimate savior. Much better than Gatorade!

Put it in the freezer so it's like a slushy. Tastes much better.

Nothing cures a hangover better than more alcohol.

A big breakfast and a Bloody Mary.

Bloody Mary, full of vodka, blessed are you among cocktails.

Yum!

Big steaming bowl of Pho. Warm broth settles my stomach and it goes down so well.

Breakfast of Champions.

Weed, Gatorade, and a breakfast/lunch that's horribly unhealthy (Mickey D's, 5 Guys, Dominos, etc).

Just had a big basket of Long John Silver's for lunch. Can confirm, feeling much more functional now.

Love a good egg.

Eggs and water. Too much alcohol depletes the amino acid (glutathione) involved in the preferred metabolic pathway, causing it to use another pathway and build up acetaldehyde, which is responsible for the hangover. Eggs are high in cysteine, which is a precursor to glutathione, and helps get your body get back on track.

Sounds about right.

A nice greasy slice of pizza before bed and a baconeggandcheesesaltpepperketchuponaneverythingbagel in the morning with a large ice coffee.

Finally, a sensible one.

Eat some pickles and drink some of the pickle water, it has more electrolytes then Gatorade.

Alternatively, only do picklebacks the whole night.

Also good advice.

  1. Sleep
  2. Get out of bed
  3. Try not to die
  4. Get something to eat and a gallon of water
  5. Don't die and sleep more

Or my favorite one: just don't drink.

I accidentally discovered that black tea works for me. Straight black tea, no sugar, nothing. But the catch is to drink it before going to sleep, on the night I was consuming alcohol.

Next morning I wake up tired, but very little hung-over.

Probably coffee would work equally well, not sure.

What is it about someone that captivates you instantly?

Could it be the twinkle in their eye as they talk about their passions? Or perhaps its their overwhelming sense of humor that draws in everyone in the room?

Whatever it might be, everyone has that one trait, that one quality, that can make them instantly interesting to someone listening nearby.

Turns out not all of us are interested in being benevolent Gods.

It's Reddit, so we're not exactly surprised, but we're suddenly glad divine cosmic powers don't work this way.

Are you like me and the 1990s were only 10 years ago?

Yes, I can do the math, but 1990 being 32 years ago still seems unreal.

Why is that?

Maybe it's the fact it marked the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st.

Either way, it just doesn't seem that long ago and the nostalgia for the trappings of the 1990s is strong.

You're probably going to be beat over the head with this as you read this charming article but bedbugs are a nightmare and they are always lurking (in the back of my mind) when I think about purchasing some items secondhand.

Some years ago, a relative brought in a stuffed animal and some other items off the street. Within days we had a bedbug issue.

It was thankfully resolved very quickly–good thing it was caught so early–but let's just say I dealt with phantom itch for a while.

Nooo thank you.
