The article says fisting cures hiccups.

I only get hiccups when I'm doing something really bad chemically to my body, like taking up smoking again, or drinking too much or too often. The hiccups are my warning to cut it out.

I just fully inflate my lungs and hold my breath while while contracting my abdominal muscles.

Dr Pepper and jalapenos will do it for me. So, same.

Fook you scientist ass holes:

"FISST is a rigid drinking tube with an inlet valve that requires forceful suction to draw water from a cup into the mouth. "


They just used way too many words to say, Drink through a Straw.
And in fact it is literally an over designed straw.

because using a normal already in existence straw to drink a milk shake/eat oatmeal (the liquid can be think instead of needing a straw with a pressure value) would not produce a new patent.


Go east a dead cows ass you fook nut dung whiffs.

Maybe I'll discuss this sucking action with my wife the next time she has the hiccups.

Reading the headline, I thought it was about drinking too many beers at the Bonspiel and slipping on the ice.

Unobtanium: The article says fisting cures hiccups.


There was a previous article (posted to Fark forever ago) that pointed out anal sex is actually an effective hiccup cure because like the device in this article, it applies stimulation to the vagus nerve. So at least one type of fisting would actually work, and the other might.

When I was in grade school (back when a laughing fit could cause hiccups) I realized that if I had hiccups I could just will them to stop.  In 25+ years I have had only one fit that this didn't work for.

Had hiccups for a week. Dr. Prescribed thorazine. Very tough to find that stuff out of a psychiatric hospital. Maybe the doc was trying to tell me something.
