"and sticking to clear liquor."

What? Are you trying to kill us? I know what happens with that Clear Liquor, like the La Bleue...Just ask Mr. Green Teeth.

Hangovers are a complex syndrome, probably caused by some combination of the following:

- Doisoning from congeners in the alcohol (particularly brown liquor, red wine, and anything cheap)

- Metabolic acidosic (drop in blood ph)

- Dehydration and resultant loss of electrolytes and vitamins

- Hypoglycemia caused by alcohol's breakdown of glycogen stores in the liver

- Gastric irritation from the alcohol

- Loss of REM sleep and other sleep disturbance

- "Rebound" water retention in reaction to the dehydraion

Generally speaking, the only cure is time, but the obvious things (water and food) go a long way to help with the symptoms. Analgesics can help with the pain, but steer clear of acetaminophen, which seems to occasionally cause a catastrophic reaction in the liver when combined with alcohol. Likewise nSAID's can exaccerbate the gastrtis in many people.

The best bet is prevention, which can be aided by eating before you start drinking, making sure you are drinking enough water all night, and sticking to clear liquor. Absinthe counts, if it was made well.

And, yes, studies have shown that a "hair of the dog" will often alleviate the symptoms, since most are caused by the ELIMINATION of the alcohol from your system, but that will only delay the inevitable.

Unless you just stay drunk.

A hangover is the result of the loss of electrolytes (sodium and potassium) and dehydration.

"Syphllis will free your mind for serious art"

ok, so when does this great side effect kick in?

I was hot for this chubby little tenor in this Baroque opera last year. I told him syphillis was my disease of choice because it was the fashionable Baroque thing to have. Somehow he didnt find this comment to be a turn on. But now I have found you hearty lads on the forum! Rejoice!

"There's so much joy to spead around... herpes, chlamydia, syphllis, AIDS, genital warts, hepatitis C... one just doesn't know where to begin."

Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, Dadaist and syphillis incubator, stalked the poet William Carlos Williams desperately trying to give him the clap because, as she told him, "Syphillis will free your mind for serious art"

Has anyone seen the video for "Where's your head at?" by Basement Jaxx? It has a bunch of monkeys with human faces. Very disturbing! Could be the bastard offspring of Planet of the Apes and the flying monkeys from Wizard of Oz. I like witches and magic, especially poppies.....

Actually, it is a very common practise of persons of middle eastern decent for that very same reason... as was explained to me once by a friend of Lebonese descent "well, there's no toilet paper in the desert."
