    John, you do know, that if there’s a burning sensation when you pee, that you should really a doctor about that, right?

    Because I don’t think that trying to get Advil™ through the urethra by drinking a lot of water it with will really do the trick.

    Well, it is a coherent post, so (thankfully) apparently no butt-chugging ensued.

    Also too, alcohol + Advil is not a wise choice. Doubles the chance of stomach irritation (including risk of stomach bleeding) as well as adversely impacting the liver. If you must take something analgesic while alcohol is in the system, stick to good old aspirin and avoid NSAIDs.

    Actually, aspirin is an NSAID too.

    Anyways, that reminds of a time, in my late 20’s, when I went to the doctor over some consistent high level pain I’d been experiencing.

    Doctor: How have you been alleviating the pain up until now?

    Me: Four Advil and and six glasses of red wine a night.

    [A pause follows, as the perturbed doctor considers this information, then:]

    Doctor: Well. that’ll do it.

    True. More accurately, should have recommended avoiding mixing alcohol with ibuprofen and/or acetaminophen, or said avoid non-aspirin NSAIDs.

    That said, the dosage levels of aspirin with no additives are less likely to be deleterious for those who can normally tolerate aspirin (buffered or non-buffered).

    Just got off of a rousing round of Team Fortress 2. Gay Marriage was dominating while Butt Plug and Rectal Itch took out Pairov Titz.

    Bots. :)

    I wish I could have caught a screenshot when I taunted as a pyro with the rainblower while Gay Marriage, the medic, was centered on my screen. The pic was of a rainbow centered over Gay Marriage, the tag saying “Gay Marriage – 85% Ubercharge” and the Balloonicorn hovering over his head.

    Then it all exploded in glorious flames and maniacal laughter.

    @abo gato: I know the feeling. We went to see grizzled, bearded Arlo Guthrie a few weeks ago. Then I went home and listened to the Alice’s Restaurant Massacree on YouTube, and found an old trailer for the movie version (which I saw in college) featuring fresh-faced, young hippie Arlo Guthrie.

    Now *that* made me feel old.

    BTW, reading this on Amtrak and their server always screens out the embedded videos at BJ with an “automatic content filter”. You have to stop posting porn, people. Or at least figure out how to get it past the filters. Now I have to wait till I get home tonight to see what this was.

    Come on Cole, Advil? That’s a rookie mistake for a hangover. Stick to aspirin and Gatorade, maybe throw in a Bloody Mary, like others have said above. I thought the scotch drinking blog master was a pro.

    @NotMax:

    Second this!

    The strain ibuprofen and acetaminophen put on human livers is under recognized and causes some people a lot of damage, you should never use more than the recommended dose (although the US Military regularly grossly overdoses our troops). Adding booze on top of that is deadly for some people and something you really don’t want to do even if it does not kill you.

    One tip if you are feeling particularly bad and the regular dose is not cutting it: you can safely mix aspirin with acetaminophen. When I was in a lot of pain I was alternating the two on a two hour schedule (one dose of each on the recommended 4 hour schedule with 2 hours till the dose of the alternate). But skip the alcohol.

    Somebody may have mentioned it, but acetaminophen should NOT be used to cure a bender.

    Could lead to liver failure.

    Oral rehydration solution, not plain water.

    Pedialyte if you need an off-the-shelf product on the road (pre-mixed or dry forumla). At home, try:

    – 3/8 tsp salt (sodium chloride)
    – 1/4 tsp Morton Salt Substitute (potassium chloride)
    – 1/2 tsp baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
    – 2 tbsp + 2 tsp sugar (sucrose)
    – Add tap water to make one (1) liter

    @Yutsano:

    This is generally called menudo – a kind of soup made with beef stomach and chile – which I cannot stand, let alone with a hangover. Sometimes Clamato (tomato and clam juice) with a beer mixed in. Also a beer with a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of salt (called a michelada).

    So, basically, a hair of the dog without the meme.

    Also, a hangover in Mexico is called a crudo which means raw. Kinda apropos.
