    James May could explain how sediment deposits hinder the inner workings of your engine and somehow still make it entertaining.

    • Vince

      Two fingers down the throat does it for me.

      • sampson

        Good to know, I thought I was the only one who did that. I will no longer hurl in shame. I shall do it proud and freely.

      • TCAL

        Or just drink water. At least two big glasses. You wont have a hangover. All about being hydrated.

  • Mehlay

    what to do:

    Before you go to sleep:
    Drink 1L or more of Cola, take 2-4 Aspirins, take some Pepto Bismol or any anti acid, take 2 Magnesium caps or Mineral supplement caps.
    lay them beside your bed with a big sign "TAKE ME!" so your drunk ass remembers to take those things before you crash.

    After you wake up:
    Take 2 Aspirin complex or anything with Ephedrine in it, disolve it in a red bull. Drink 1L of Gaterade (slowly), if needed some more anti-acid, eat something salty.

    You're welcome!!

    • ScubaSteve

      That's far to much Aspirin. If you want to kill your kidneys have fun but you should never take an excess amount of ibuprofen to cure a hangover. All you should have to do is drink 1L of water, or gatorade/powerade if you prefer. Cola has nothing special in it to help.

    • Rob

      Actually i would ditch the Cola in favour of a drink no caffeiene and/or with electrolytes like Gatorade or Powerade. Or you could drink a a liter of water.

    • Negrodamas

      We're supposed to do all of this as we're slobbering drunk, stumbling in to what we can vaguely determine is our bed/floor/yard?

    • Johnny Two Toes

      Just stay away from ibuprofen, it can cause your stomach to bleed if taken with alcohol.

    • Keith

      Or just grow a set!

    • Jangalang

      What the fuck is all this? Just drink a lot of water. All of this is definitely overkill. I am 27 now. I never get bad hangovers anymore. All you have to do is make sure you drink water and keep it by your bed so that if you wake up you drink water.

      Ephedrine and redbull, sodas, and salt will dehydrate you further. Bad advice man.

    • Tombawomba

      Or you could just not drink that f'n much.

      (Wait Chive, dont throw the empties at me, wait no, no, nooooooooooooooo)

    • Bazinga

      A wild troll appears.
      Troll uses bad advice.
      It's not very effective.

    • TCAL

      Or just drink water. DERP

    • junior

      Smoke a joint, all will be well…

  • thrillho

    A couple tylenol and a tall glass of water before beddy-bye works for me. Always wake up needing to take a raging piss (and having to talk down my morning wood in order to do so), but the hangover is minimal.

  • AA for me

    God I want a drink…

    So my liver is the asshat that steals the water from my brain and gives me a headache… FFFFFFUUUUUUU LIVER!

    • Badfish

  • NothingToSeeHere

    Hydration is important.

  • Alex Justesen

  • Thor

    Your body produces 4 times as much urine as what you drink:
    "Better drink my own piss!"
