    Charcoal has been used for centuries to purify water so why wouldn't help do the same when ingesting bad food or drink.
    If you haven't used it how will you ever know?
    The day we get unbiased science is the day Big Phama starts to lose billions and that will never happen.

    So you're a true believer, eh? Not that it matters to you, but have you heard of the placebo effect?

    big fan of the lotsa water trick mentioned above or all those little anti-nausea pills that you get with your knee surgeries and never use (bc you are so drugged up anyway) well they work GREAT for hangovers

    bc I feel like if you miss the night before water gorge, it them becomes too difficult the next morning to down enough water to rehydrate w/o getting the water barfs- so those little anti-nausea pills do wonders then.

    I try to drink a glass of water between each adult beverage. It helps to be diligent early on because water is hard when drunk apparently. I prefer this method cause it avoids the before-bed chug.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    ...and water has been used for millennia to drown people, so it is obviously a toxic substance and should be avoided.

    Your reasoning shows you have no clue what you are taking about, but keep eating burning wood, it obviously keeps you healthy, and stupid.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    She said "knee surgery", obviously they don't hand them out for ankles

    Well they are not wrong, at some point the aches and pains go away, everthing else dosn't matter because you are to drunk to care.

    Did you give them a shake to activate them before chowing down?

    Go spew your big Pharma propaganda elsewhere because it works

    They took off the selves in Ontario because it was working all too well. Luckily I can still get in Quebec.

    I lol'd. So fluid. So tasteful. So effortless.






    What happens when that shit packs up your pooper? Is that when the coffee enema?

    Gotta disagree w that. Intubated plenty of catastrophically wasted activated charcoal patients. It's just messier. But if they are vomiting and can't protect their airway they get to smoke the white cigar.

    Like, a lot of people get really wasted and try to fix things by eating lot of charcoal?

    It had never even occurred to me to do that.

    Sounds like something you talk your drunk buddies into doing while standing around the backyard next to the Weber...

    Where do you work that you have the chance to tube all of these drunk patients that have been given charcoal? it raises a lot of questions.

    Edit: I'm guessing hospital, that would make sense. I don't know why I assumed EMS at first read.

    Does sound a little odd when you put it like that.

    Also known as "spacers" amongst my drunk friends.

    A Nalgene full of water with a Nuun tab works wonders on a hangover.

    Fresh lime juice in your water...or your drink. Not that plastic bottle stuff either. More the better.

    I find a nice chunk of charred American oak from a bourbon barrel before bed does wonders to aleviate a hangover.

    Really compliments the gallon of brown hooch I've ingested too.
    I still call it The Jake.
