Why do the damn things contain caffeine?
2001-12-22 12:08:56 AM  
i still agree with the old hangover cure: drinking some more.
2001-12-22 12:09:58 AM  
Can't have a hangover if you never stop drinking....

Alka-Seltzer® Morning Relief™ packs a maximum strength pain reliever and caffeine into a refreshing citrus effervescent product that is gentle on your stomach. This unique combination is designed to relieve minor aches and pains with fatigue or drowsiness associated with a hangover, and can also be used for headaches, body aches and pains alone.

What more can we ask for other than putting Alka-Seltzer in coffee as I do?
2001-12-22 12:10:52 AM  
This is the medicine of the gods!

Can't have a hangover if you never stop drinking....

Or too many surviving brain cells.

All it is is a pair of Bayer and a cup and a half of coffee...

The average 30 year old consumes 4.5 drinks in one sitting.

Fark that. I know 19 year olds that can put away a LOT more in one sitting.

ALL IT IS? How dare you talk down about my favorite drink?!
2001-12-22 12:13:35 AM  
The fact that this was put on Fark on a Friday night/Saturday morning...

Alka-Seltzer® Morning Relief™

Is my god. It replaces such suck ass things as drinking lots of water, taking vitamins, etc... This solution rules. I wonder why it took Bayer so long to think of it.
2001-12-22 12:16:41 AM  
Each dose of Alka-Seltzer® Morning Relief™ contains a maximum strength pain reliever (1000 mg of aspirin) to get rid of your pounding headache and caffeine (130mg) to revive you.

I've also heard that two migraine Advils work quite well for headaches (one, the suggested amount, isn't enough).
2001-12-22 12:17:58 AM  
Tried it.

A few apirin and two sixteen ounce bottles of Gatorade before you finally crash works much better. Force 'em down if you have to.

Trust me.
2001-12-22 12:17:58 AM  
God Bless Alka-Seltzer. Boobies.
2001-12-22 12:19:03 AM  
Nah.... It just wipes out the weak ones, leaving nothing but the strongest behind. Like a liquid pack of wolves in a herd of grey matter elk.

Now the liver, on the other hand... Well, ask David Crosby about that one.
2001-12-22 12:19:49 AM  
Hangover medicine?....I'll drink to that!
2001-12-22 12:20:35 AM  
Hohoho farkers!

"Drink a pace while breath you have,
You'll find but cold drinking in the grave."

You will all find the grave soon enough.

Merry Christmas.

Saving that last line of meth till the morning works pretty well,too.
2001-12-22 12:23:33 AM  
Death and Meth....maybe I don't want to be a Farker.

THAT's the spirit.
2001-12-22 12:27:04 AM  
Is Alka-Seltzer really banned in California?
2001-12-22 12:27:23 AM  
Waking up next to two blind nuns with no kneecaps or tonsils is an instant eye-opener as well. Keep that in mind.
2001-12-22 12:28:43 AM  
Hangovers are caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain. To feel better, drink lots of water (which has oxygen in it)or suck on an oxy/acetalyne welder's tanks with the acetalyne off of course!

But to beat the hangover from the start, the answer is water, water, water.

France surrendering helps too!
2001-12-22 12:29:59 AM  
Gawd...use Google image search for "hangover" and I wind up with this...

Probably NSFW. Ew.

Probably NSFW.

I geuss your right. I just sent that link to my mom and she disowned me. Damn.

Let me re-phrase that "NSFW" and replace it with "Not Safe for Stile Project."
2001-12-22 12:37:17 AM  
errr....great wallpaper for work......screwit...whynot
2001-12-22 12:37:19 AM  
"NSFW" no screwing french women. and thats final.

Geddysciple: That's beyond your typical swirly.
2001-12-22 01:00:59 AM  
I haven't read any of this thread - I just want to say that this hangover stuff works pretty well (for me at least) and I recomend it. It peps you up, helps with the headache and cures the touch and go stomache.
2001-12-22 01:05:20 AM  
It sounds like something I used years ago called Dr. Decoopers Hangover Helper. That stuff worked great. If this works nearly as well it will be well worth it.
2001-12-22 01:51:31 AM  
Eat a full italian meal before drinking, with copious amounts of pasta and bread. Not only will you feel better the next day, you'll get fatter.
2001-12-22 02:06:05 AM  
Botsuraku_Hato: However following your advise if you drink to much and start to heaving you will make a real mess, but at least no dry heaves. Those hurt like a pineapple up the ass.

No I haven't had a pineapple up the ass, but doesn't it sound painful. ;-)
2001-12-22 02:22:53 AM  
I will be looking forward to those tomorrow morning.
2001-12-22 02:26:12 AM  
Fb-: Which one pineapples up the ass or dry heaves.

By the way have you looked at your photoshop.
2001-12-22 07:09:48 AM  
It's been in the UK for a while, I think, but it's called Alka-Seltzer XS over here.

The radio adverts are amusing.... They tell people to get a life and get drunk, and that 'When you've overdone it the night before, Alka XS...' does something good... with 'a hint of caffeine!'
2001-12-22 07:35:56 AM  
Wait a minute. When I was a kid I used to get monstrous headaches (eye strain). Anyway, they used to sell very high potency aspirin that also had equal levels of caffeine and a substance called phenocitin. It wa the most effective stuff you could get over the counter. And it was in like 1000 mg form. Anyway, I think they did a study that showed it caused internal bleeding or something and took it off the market. This strikes me as the same minus the phenocitin.

Besides only way to prevent a hangover after drinking is to stick you head under the faucet and drink as much water as possible before going to bed. It's all about dehydration and lack of oxygen to the brain.
2001-12-22 09:39:58 AM  
Will Alka-Seltzer make a pill too tell you who that strange guy is sleeping next to you, and whether or not you had sex with him? lol*
