They forgot the best one: a McDonald's breakfast with a large Coke.

6. Have some pickle. Avoid vinegar in it.

Ewwww, that would definitely make me sick.

I have the best method to fight a hangover:

...Don't drink.
2003-01-03 02:27:09 PM  
In Sov eee it Russia, hangovers fight YOU!
2003-01-03 02:27:15 PM  
Hangover remedies crack me up.
Simply drink half a gallon of water before you go to bed and you'll be fine, hangovers are mostly caused by dehydration.
2003-01-03 02:27:21 PM  

Hey! Leggo... OW!! Stop That!!!

This is my favorite:

4. The most popular way of rehabilitation amid the Russian people is to have a little of what caused the whole thing.

Yup. Just stay drunk all the time, then you'll never have that, how you say, that not-so-fresh-day-after-feeling.

Then how, exactly, do you expect to get beer goggles?
2003-01-03 02:29:54 PM  
These guys are professional drinkers.. I believe them.
2003-01-03 02:30:25 PM  
A big, steaming bowl of borscht. Oh yummy.

6. Have some pickle. Avoid vinegar in it.

It's called a cucumber. Pickling, if I'm not mistaken, REQUIRES vinegar. Crazy Russians.
2003-01-03 02:30:59 PM  
What the hell is kefir?
2003-01-03 02:31:16 PM  
This is it I swear.

Waffle House. Three eggs over medium with grits (if you are a Yankee you can skip that) toast and a double order of hash browns. Go home. Take a shower. Crank out a batch. Sleep for a couple of more hours. Start drinking again. I swear it works everytime.

Pavel Tsatsouline (Russian fitness guy) says that pickle juice is the absolute best for a hangover.

I personally take a glass of water every time I go pee during my drunk, then take 2 mutivitamins and a BIG glass of water before bed. It's more trouble than just sleeping it off (#1 Russian "cure", duh), but it works incredibly well.

In Soviet Union Filter Farks you!
2003-01-03 02:32:15 PM  
borsch and sour cream is actually pretty yummy
2003-01-03 02:33:15 PM  
Those wacky Russians and their crazy pseudo-medical advice.

BTW - kefir is a yogurt drink.
2003-01-03 02:33:32 PM  
6. Have some pickle. Avoid vinegar in it.

Hilarity ensues.

Soooooo, in which end does this pickle go?????
2003-01-03 02:34:50 PM  
BamaTide Not the waffle house!!!

Just start drinking more of the same. Always works !!!
2003-01-03 02:35:56 PM  
Pickle? Remember, the just because the Russians are good at causing the hangover doesn't mean they're good at curing it.
2003-01-03 02:36:27 PM  
"6. Have some pickle. Avoid vinegar in it."
It is not have a pickle, it is have some pickle. I think they mean you "in a pickle", or you have some pickle.

I like 5 and 8. Though I have no idea what "kefir" is. It must have something to do with grip, otherwise how could it help you to feel better?
"5. Have a bottle of beer. Be careful."
"8. Have a glass of kefir - it will help you to feel better."

Newsflash--a cup of honey will prevent a hangover, according to Russian sources. In other news, PETA invades Russia under the flag of the Bee Incarceration Libaration Front, otherwise known as Operation: Go Bee-Tween
2003-01-03 02:38:34 PM  
the best thing for a hangover is drinking heavily the night before.
2003-01-03 02:38:37 PM  
Smack in the forehead with a toffee hammer works for me. Pain is relative.
2003-01-03 02:38:49 PM  
Alka Seltzer cold medicine (the kind that dissolves in water, not the gel tabs)
2003-01-03 02:39:17 PM  
DAMN, BamaTide - I forgot the AwfulHouse! Pork chops and eggs, over light, scattered/smothered, raisin toast, grits. Best. Breakfast. Ever. Especially as a cure for a hangover or otherwise wild night.

"Let go of your pickle"

2003-01-03 02:44:03 PM  
Green tea and vitamin B1(even better if taken before drinking).
2003-01-03 02:44:07 PM  
What about pumping yourself full of an opium-related gas?
2003-01-03 02:44:36 PM  
Anything greasy (food that is...) in large quantities usually works.
2003-01-03 02:44:41 PM  

2003-01-03 02:45:05 PM  
I dont know about hangovers, but when I get too drunk a little coke snaps me right back.
2003-01-03 02:46:06 PM  
Best hangover remedy: Decapitation.
2003-01-03 02:46:48 PM  
Teaspoon of cider vinegar in a large glass of cold mineral water. Works wonders.

American doctors recommend to have a cup of bee honey in the morning. As they say, honey qualities help a human organism to clean blood from alcohol.

Hmm... Cleaning blood from alcohol.. thats always nice when you get blood in your alcohol stream...

Just a thought

According to Red Dwarf, the best cure is a triple fried egg sandwich with chili sauce and chutney. From the script, as Rimmer begins to eat:

RIMMER: I feel like I'm having a baby!
LISTER: It's good innit?
RIMMER: It's incredible. Where did you get the recipe from?
LISTER: I can't remember. I think it was a book on bacteriological warfare.
RIMMER: It's like a cross between food and bowel surgery.
LISTER: (Nodding) It's well naughty. The trouble is you've got to eat it before the bread dissolves.

Oh God, I think after eating that I'd get even sicker! Well, except for the pork chops... A mushroom and cheese omelette (maybe ham too ;) works for me!

Oh yeah, and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee!
2003-01-03 02:52:05 PM  
Kefir is a sour fermented milk drink.
2003-01-03 02:54:13 PM  
Those who recommend drinking water before you go to bed are absolutely correct.
Look, I know you're tired and you want to go to sleep, and your stomach is already feeling full from all that beer.
But first, drink as much water as you can stand. Minimum 12-16 oz.
I know y'all are fuzzy at this point, but ya GOTTA remember to do this before you hit the sack. You'll regret it if you don't.
2003-01-03 02:56:47 PM  
Water + asprin before you go to be
GREASY cheesburger and bloody mary when you wake up
2003-01-03 02:57:09 PM  
Was it just me, or did anyone else notice their list of 10 hangover cures only listed 8? Maybe they're still a lil hungover there at Pravda.

2003-01-03 02:57:25 PM  
Some genius scientist have decided to dub your breakthrough remedy "rehydration".
2003-01-03 02:57:35 PM  
Yup. Water before bed works for me. As long as im not so drunk that I soak the sheets.
2003-01-03 02:58:42 PM  
9. Don't drink.

Oh, wait, it's Russia. Never mind.
2003-01-03 02:59:35 PM  
that was the dumbest, most uninsightful thing i've read in a while. "take a really profound sleep"...yeah, like that isn't the only thing i want to do but i can't fall asleep b/c this effin headache won't go away!

#101 most annoying thing of the year. hangover remedies. if you don't know of a few at this point you really shouldn't be drinking. i hear a mix of poprocks & soda works real well...
2003-01-03 03:04:56 PM  
...cant go wrong with number 5...
2003-01-03 03:05:31 PM  
If not drinking is the best way to fight a hangover, where is the fight? No hangover = No fight

I'm going fighting tommoro morning
