Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

once again: honestly, ****ing truly, just drink a few glasses of water throughout the night, or chug it until you can't hold anything more in your stomach before you go to sleep. because of this wisdom I rarely have hangovers.

edit: the above ain't true either, the day always gets better!

Oh, and buy a Brita. Filtered water is the best thing in the world for hangover prevention and treatment.

I gotta agree, the garbage omelet is damn good. I only had it as a teen I never used it for a hangover cure but it was still delicious.

I miss that place badly. I don't know how many times in college I woke up Saturday mornings to my buddy Zeit calling me and asking, "Hey man, you wanna go eat our weight in hash browns?"

This is the best thing you can do to prevent a hangover.

1. Buy like 3 pounds of cheap ass hamburger and 3 or 4 32oz Gatorades.
2. Drink one Gatorade on the way home. Drink another when you get home.
3. Put remaining Gatorades in the fridge.
4. Shoot up as much meth as you can purchase with the leftover money.
5. Get in your 1988 Hyundai Excel.
6. Drive to the nearest highway.
7. Take the Hyundai to it's top speed (68 mph).
8. Throw the hamburger out the window.
9. Call your ex-girlfriend. Ask if you can come over.
10. When she says no, go over anyways.
11. Sneak in through a back window.
12. Leave a belated birthday card (6 months late) on her parent's kitchen table.
13. Steal a carton of her mom's Kools from the freezer.
14. Steal the ice cube trays while you're in there.
15. Scream "I LOVE YOU WINNIE!"
16. Piss yourself.
17. Run out the back door.
18. Fall down the stairs. Piss yourself again.
19. Go to gas station to clean all the piss off of yourself.
20. Rob gas station.
21. Buy more meth.
22. Shoot up more meth.
23. Don't go to sleep.

Huevos rancheros, heavy on the peppers with a mug of coffee, 16oz of watter and a bowl of pickled carrots, onion & jalapeno, good for you and cures hangovers, or if you don't consume hot peppers all the time, will seriously distract senses from the hangover

The only time I get hangovers is when I'm too drunk to remember to drink water before I go to bed, or if I pass out first. I'm not sure the water would help in those situations, cause that's pretty drunk. When I do wake up hungover I just drink as much water as I can without puking (usually about a half a glass).

As long as 4 happens, 23 is unnecessary to state, and yet again with 22 in action.

I'm making it a priority to do that next year. I'm going to cook up a kooky bike that fits in two suitcases too.
