I have a hangover of Biblical proportions (All is Vanity)
The Bar ^ | 06/06/2008 | MeanWestTexan

Posted on 06/05/2008 9:27:55 AM PDT by MeanWestTexan

I have hang over of Biblical proportions.

As in my head is splitting like the Red Sea.

Fire and brimstone are flying from me like the wrath of an Angy God.

I believe the Germans caused this by immigrating to Texas and brewing a concoction known as "Shiner Bock."

Anyone have any suggestions?

You know, it’s funny. I can’t remember.

Yep, go listen to..

The best hangover song ever written.

Most hang overs are the result of dehydration, drink water or other thin liquids.

So far I’ve drank some of my daughter’s lactose free milk and a cup of coffee.

Water and asprin last night didn’t do squat.

My prevention for a hangover is proven and has been used by many people over a period of two decades. Just don’t do this every night!

Take: (2) 325 ml aspirin; (1) capsule selenium; (1) B Complex vitamin. Drink at least 12 oz. of water. Go to bed.

The next morning you will not have a hangover BUT you will feel as though you swallowed ping-pong balls all night!

Drink non-filtered beer. Namely homebrew. In my experience, the yeast has an affect on the body that tends to minimize my ‘sluggishness’ the next day.

It hurts to look at the screen, but this is a distraction to keep me from thinking about my stomach.

Just head on down to the corner gas station and buy another six pack. Drink them down and you will feel better until you wake up.

My hangover was mild this morning. That being said, there was a strawberry-kiwi fruit drink on the market back in the 90’s (Hero?—it was from Europe, somewhere) that I could swear mitigated the effects.

Gatorade and some toast if you can manage it. Cold pack on the head (bag of frozen peas or rice works nice.)

Drink a Red Eye.
Mix equal parts beer and “clamato” (tomato juice works in a pinch). Works great. Painted label Sam Miguel works best, but can’t get it stateside.

Texas Sized Hangover?

I would suggest you grab a hair-of-the dog, walk out into the desert, and find a nice flat rock to lay on for awhile. Sweat it out.

Oh, and listening to ‘3 days straight’ by Ray Wylie Hubbard probably wouldn’t hurt anything.

When I was younger, I used to work at a drugstore that had a Sodafountain/snack bar. The lead singer in my band used to come to the store every Sunday so that we might partake in our hangover cure. This consisted of 2 Hot dogs, covered in mustard, mayo, ketchup, chili, jalapenos, onions, cheese, fritos and coleslaw. We would eat them, and within 15 minutes of the last bite, we would head to the bathroom and vomit so hard that our rectums would prolapse. It didn’t completely cure the hangover, but it did manage to purge any remaining toxins in our body....at least that’s what we thougt....

Put some plastic over your screen and keyboard.

That way you can use the computer after your barf all over it, which should happen in 3...2...1....

I’ve never been hungover, but you have my sympathies.

What, drink? I'll have a couple of beers a month, some wine at Thanksgiving. Haven't drank liquor over, I don't know...forty proof, I guess, since 1997. Hence no hangovers.

Back in my drinking days, I generally cured my hangovers with the ol' "hair of the dog" method.

Your hangover is because you are dehydrated.

Drink lots and lots of liquids and wait it out. Expect all manner of possible solutions. Use any or all of them as long as you drink lots and lots of liquids.

Aspirin will also help to widen constricted arteries. Good Luck; next time drink lots and lots of water before passing out or going to sleep.

Drink two quarts of weak, warm tea, along with three 200-MG Ibuprofen tablets and one extra-strength Excedrin. Then eat something, preferably with a good balance of protein, fat and simple carbohydrate. If that doesn’t work, repeat the words “hangover, go away,” three times, wait twelve hours, and your problem will be over.

Oh, one last thing . . . it is not a hangover "of biblical proportions" until you imagine some guy in a robe telling you repent of your ways as you wake up.

Just blow him off, that's what I say.

You need:

One large cup
1 jar green olives
1 of the offending Shiner Bocks
2 7oz cans of Spicy Hot V8 juice (normally use one, but I’d double on if I were you.
Whorchester sauce
Tobasco
Pepper

Take the cup and line the bottom with the olives. Douse the olives with about 10 shakes of the Tobasco. Let sit for about 2 minutes. Now but in about 5 shakes of Whorchester and poor in the Shiner Bock and the V-8. Mix and grind fresh pepper on top.

It’s hair of the dog, but it get alot of the vitamins and potassium that you flushed from your system last night.

Note: The mixing it with the offending beverage is really more ritual than useful. I dont recommend doing that if the hangover is from Merlot. That really tastes like crap.

Goodness, always take 2 Excedrin before you go to sleep. If you still feel like crap in the morning, have a drink or two - that will alleviate any nauseas feelings.

Must be one mean hangover! Usually water and aspirin will work, if not the night before, the day of (combined with more rest).

One suggestion (that apparently is rather controversial) is to eat something that is rather fatty, like pizza or, McDonald’s food, and “sleep on that”. Again, I realize that’s rather controversial, but it’s worked for me in the past. (no joke!) That is of course assuming there’s no associated nausea. The way I always saw it, I thought, “Well, I’ve already damaged my body with all this alcohol, might as well try to get comfortable, and not worry about fat and cholesterol at this point!”

Also, take a vitamin.

That’s one thing I really don’t miss about drinking: The hangovers. I really do think it’s God’s way of keeping us from drinking excessively. At least as “kind” a way He can muster while still reminding us of the consequences! haha

Sounds like your a number five.........

One Star Hangover (*):
No pain. No real feeling of illness. You’re able to Function
relatively well; however, you are still parched. You can drink
5 sodas and still feel this way. For some reason you are
craving a steak & fries.

Two Star Hangover (**):
No pain, but something is definitely amiss. You May look okay,
but you have the mental capacity Of a staple gun. The coffee you
are chugging is only increasing the rumbling in your gut, which
is still tossing around the Papa burger and fries you had at the
all night drive thru excursion at 3:00 AM. There is some
definite havoc being wreaked upon your bowels.

Three Star Hangover (***):
Slight headache. Stomach feels crappy. You are definitely not
productive. Anytime a girl walks by, you gag because her perfume
reminds you of the flavored schnapps shots your alcoholic
friends dared you to drink. Life would be better right now if
you were home in your bed watching I Love Lucy Reruns. You’ve
had 4 cups of coffee, a gallon of water, 3 iced teas and a Diet
Coke yet you haven’t peed once.

Four Star Hangover (****):
Life sucks. Your head is throbbing. You can’t speak too quickly
or else you might puke. Your boss has already lambasted you for
being late and has given you a lecture for reeking of booze. You
wore nice clothes, but that can’t hide the fact that you only
shaved one side of your face. (For the ladies, it looks like you
put your make-up on while riding the bumper cars.) Your eyes
look like one big red vein, and even your hair hurts. Your
sphincter is in perpetual spasm, and the first of about five
poops you take during the day brings water to your eyes as well
as the eyes of everyone who enters the bathroom.

Five Star Hangover (*****):
You have a second heartbeat in your head, which is actually
annoying the employee who sits in the next cube. Vodka vapor is
seeping out of every pore and making you dizzy. In fact, you are
probably still drunk. You still have toothpaste crust in the
corners of your mouth from brushing your teeth in an attempt to
get the remnants of the poop fairy out. Your body has lost the
ability to generate saliva so your tongue is suffocating you.
You don’t have the foggiest idea who the hell the stranger was
passed out in your bed this morning. Any attempt to defecate
results in a fire hose like discharge of alcohol-scented fluid
with a rare ‘floater’ thrown in. The sole purpose of this
‘floater’ seems to be to splash toilet water all over your ass.
Death sounds pretty good about right now.
