Gawker - Finally, a reason for science to exist: A researcher in Philadelphia (of course!) has discovered the single most effective cure for a hangover. And it's really pretty simple. Coffee and aspirin. That's it!
Apparently hangovers AREN'T caused by dehydration, as the rats Professor Michael Oshinsky of Thomas Jefferson University used clearly showed. I'm not so sure he ran the rats through the same gauntlet of beer, whiskey, vodka, awkward sexual advances, public humiliation, and 4:30am sake bombs that I had last Saturday, but I guess I'll take the word of this "scientist". I mean, that Iranian man I almost threw up on in the laundromat the next day said coconut water, but I guess coffee and aspirin it is.
