probably not relaxing listening to music flipping through BBC news and watching my news mix on tv (6 channels of news at once <3 you rogers cable). Relaxing after a good day at work, that I enjoy and got via my success in school, which I completed high. (don't smoke at work though I like my job).

I think I am doing pretty freaking well, I don't want to imagine it another way when currently I feel pretty good about what Ive accomplished.

These days, having a genius level IQ just means I whoop the **** of anyone stupid enough to challenge me in Words with Friends.

It's sad. I don't feel as smart as I did in high school, because people I associate with and around me have grown more intelligent and mature, while I've sort of stagnated and stopped growing at all.

Maybe alcohol really does kill brain cells. Time to break into that bottle of port!

That might be kinda difficult, considering he was cremated and his ashes scattered at an undisclosed location.

Also, even if you found the ashes, they don't contain the ashes of his brain, which was removed without permission by the pathologist performing the autopsy.

On topic, despite a rather high IQ, I've never tried drugs(aside from ones prescribed to me). Hell, I didn't even know what pot smells like until two months ago when I caught a guest smoking some on the patio. And it wasn't for lack of opportunity, since I've known several folks who were always trying to talk me into getting high with them during college.

He must be kinda smart. Hell, Elinda, if you and I wanted to smoke weed all day, we'd have to be able to pay for it by having a good job that we showed up for every day. In fact, people like us must be stupid, since we don't squeeze everything we can out of the system, whether we really need it or not.

@ Elinda, I don't pretend to be smart, I let my academic success speak for that.

No. I'd heard this story a couple weeks ago about illusory superiority on NPR. Your post reminded me of that.

According to varus, drinking is for people to escape a world that they're a failure in.

I've had one hangover. I drank a fair bit that night, but I'm not sure I quite reached "drunk". I didn't feel happy, didn't feel like I was losing inhibitions, I went from a bit relaxed straight to sluggish and tired.

Then I was hungover for three days.

The price wasn't worth the payoff, and now I never drink more than one or two.

Ive drunk enough to not get hung over. Also I always eat a banana and have a glass of OJ before bed. I do this every night regardless however. These too things will prevent a hangover nearly every time, as both are very high in 2 vitamins which make you feel good, 2 vitamins that alcohol severely reduces to make you feel good.

So i guess
Pro Tip, drink more, or have a banana and glass of OJ before bed

I was hospitalized for alcohol poisoning my sophomore year. The actual poisoning part was not fun...I remember a vague feeling that I was about to die, and helplessness because I wasn't able to move my body or talk. Friends brought me to the hospital when they saw that I was keeled over, completely pale and clammy, apparently.

What followed was a 48 hour massive hangover. Waking up in a hospital, with no idea how you got there, sucks. Sucks doubly when you realize that you've got a catheter in you. I had nausea like I had a huge stomach virus, and the room spun for two straight days.

It was a pretty good lesson.

Also glad you got through I had a friend who died for 40 seconds from alcohol poisoning, he is fine now but it was pretty scary for the 3-4 of us 14 year old underage drinkers, taught me a lot about not going overboard.

I've never had a hangover. I've awakened still drunk, I've awakened a little fuzzy on the events of the night before, but I've never had the symptoms you all are describing.

All that was a long time ago, though. A big night out these days is a couple of beers.

Two glasses of water and an aspirin right before bed is also good for preventing hangovers. A lot of the "yuck" feeling is due to dehydration, as your body uses up a lot of water metabolizing alcohol, and the rest gets peed out during the drinking bit.

I remember some of my best hangovers from back in the day. When I was a teenager working at McDonalds, a bunch of us from the crew would go over to one of the manager's house and we'd drink till like four, then wake up two hours later and head back to the store with the opening crew. I would usually eat a sausage egg and cheese muffin and drink, in series, coffee, Sprite, water and apple juice.

Tinnitus is a known side effect of aspirin use.

Honestly, unless you have some extra need for taking some kind of medication, just drink the 2 cups of water before bed and this should prevent a hangover. Taking vitamins wont hurt, of course, but it's really the dehydration which causes the headache, and empty stomach which causes other symptoms of a hangover. Drinking water should prevent or at least seriously diminish any hangover symptoms.

It used to be a subject of much amusement back when I worked at a convenience store to read the instructions on those packets of "hangover cures" we used to sell. They were basically a bag of (expensive) vitamins, with the instructions saying to take them with 2 cups of water before going to bed after drinking. Um... Just drink the water and save yourself the $3.

Just started happening recently. I couldn't figure out why my ears were ringing, because it doesn't happen right away, or even the same day. I can take an aspirin and maybe two days later, long after I've forgotten I ever took the aspirin, my ears will ring for a few hours.
