I would like to 1 UP the scientific community.
How about boiling the asparagus for dinner. Eat it, and then carry around a jug of asparagus water to alternate drinks with……
Someone please send me my Honorary Doctorate in the field of Hangover Avoidance,. I really could be on to something.
Is is advice like that, that makes me want to find Bill Nye and slap him upside the head.
I know he is not the culprit, but he is the only science guy I can think of.
There is really only 1 sure fire way to avoid a hangover.
DONT DRINK AT ALL
Novel idea, isn’t it.
