Hangover Remedies


Happy Halloween buddies.  I know most of you are probably heading out to Halloween parties tonight and with the horrid luck of Halloween falling on a Sunday this year you will probably have to work in the morning.  If your like me you will be suffering from a massive deadly hangover .  I have found that nothing instantly cures a hangover, but here are some tips to make it a little better:

  1. Drink water, you know damn well that a hangover is caused mostly by dehydration so get that water in you.
  2. Gatorade or Bullion water will help you replenish all that salt you lost and make you feel a bit better.
  3. ASPIRIN I don’t know why , but most of my friends and family like to ignore the fact that aspirin exists, anyway take 2 for your headache
  4. Eat a bagel or muffin or something starchy to absorb that nasty stuff in your guts and slow the alcohol absorption.
  5. Wait it out, it will only get better with time , I have never in my life found an instant hangover cure, your going to have to suffer for a bit.

Wrap yourself in wrapping paper with a tag: "From: God, To: Women". What are you? God's gift to women.

Put a pot on your head. What are you? A pot head. 

Wear all white. Attach (or paint) yellow circle to your stomach. You are an egg. Add horns and a pitchfork and you are a deviled egg.  

Wear all white. Attach old cups, milk cartons etc to you. What are you? White trash.

For a couple: she dresses as a brick. You as a mason. What are you? A brick-layer.

DIY ECA STACK (ephedrine, caffeine, and aspirin)


The ECA stack is a potent central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. The ingrediants work together synergistically, their combined effect is much greater than the effect of the individual components alone. The effects of the stack are: a major decrease in appetite, thermogenesis (creation of heat), which causes the body to burn more calories; and increased fat burning.


The ECA stack is very effective in combination of exercise and healthy diet in aiding in weight loss and fat loss in particular. It is a great way to help lose those extra pound, keep them off during the winter or for slimming down when bodybuilding.


Ephedrine is only banned as a dietary supplement , meaning it cannot be marketed for weight loss. Ephedrine itself can be bought online or at the gas station, but the cheapest and most simple way to get it is buying it in the form of Bronkaid or Primatene both which should be available at your local pharmacy or Walmart. You can buy generic caffeine and aspirin anywhere for just a few bucks.

25 mgs of ephedrine and 200 mgs of caffeine are the central ingredients of the stack, the aspirin helps the effects last longer.Most people suggest taking 325 mg of aspirin ( a normal aspirin) but I suggest taking a baby aspirin instead to lower the chance for side effects.

When it all comes down to it your going to be spending about half of what you would on most popular commercial weight loss products.

Take this stack 2 times a day and cycle 3 weeks on 1 week off.

Simple right?

DISCLAIMER :make sure to do your research and I am not responsible it you take 208230389038409384309mgs of ephedrine and have a heart attack

Google PageRank

So I must admit I am very new to blogging and have been doing quite a bit of research as of lately as to what makes a blog successful, and as I am sure some of you have noticed there is ALOT of information out there relating to SEO ( search engine optimization), so much so that is is almost overwhelming (ok completely overwhelming).  So when I came past this amazing infographic (and if you read my blog, I am sure you already know I have a hard-on for these things) about Google PageRank, I knew I had to share it, it really had summarized most of what took me hours to try to understand from about a million websites.  It's a little embarrassing to say that as of now I belong to the marching band, so I am gonna start shooting for the drama crowd.

How to spot a Liar

Most of this guide I admit is a bit of common sense, but it has been my experience that what may be obvious to some is not so much for others. For instance, It was just last year I realized that granola didn't occur naturally and that it was a combination of oats and honey. It blew my mind.

How not to overpay for car repairs

I for one am not exactly a "car guy" and every time I need a water pump replaced or timing belt repaired I head right on over to the nearest garage and turn over the keys to my beat up,old Ford Escort.  Their have been many times I have just simply payed for services having no idea if the price was fair or if I was getting screwed over by some jerk who figures I would never know they difference, and of course there have been times when I just though to myself, How could this cost so much. Here's a few tips to make sure your not getting ripped of by your mechanic.

1) Ask ALOT of questions, make sure you know exactly what parts and type of labor your car will need.

2) If possible, wait there while the repairs are being made, this makes it harder for them to charge you for unnecessary repairs.

3) Request to see the part that is causing the problem and have them tell you why it is causing a problem to insure that they can't just clean up the old part and pass it off as new or install a new part that didn't even have a problem to begin with.

4) Do your research ,If you know whats wrong with your car, you should know how much you should expect to pay for parts and labor before you walk in the door, sites like make this very easy.

5) Shop around, I find that estimates can vary by hundreds of dollars depending on where I am, but also remember you get what you pay for so don't always jump at the cheapest price, alternatively don't be stupid enough to go with the highest estimate either, shoot for the middle.

Hollow book trinket tray

Obviously I am to old to be hiding my stash in a hallow book, but if you make one of these out of a beautiful old atlas or something of the likes it would look very handsome and interesting sitting on your coffee or end table as a catch-all (trinket tray, key butler, vide poche, whatever term you use for it, its just a tray or bowl you empty your pockets into when you get home)

5 Types of Girls to Avoid

This is an incomplete list in absolutely no order of the types of girls to avoid when looking for a relationship.

Girls who claim to be "crazy" , but do not see a psychiatrist or take meds
People who refuse treatment don't belive that they have a mental disorder, if a girl brags or blames her rage on a psychiatric disorder its due to her being immature and seeking attention. If a girl has a legitimate disorder she is find to date, just make sure you understand her condition before hand.

Girls who drink to much
There is nothing wrong with a girl that likes to have fun, but girls who drink/drug every chance they get will leave you the minute something (or someone) else seems more fun.

Self proclaimed "Gamer Girls"
This goes for girls that are overly enthusiastic about anything that is typically a guy thing especially if they chose to define themselves by it. They are doing this for no other reason than to attract male attention, because they know that their personality is shit. Do note there is a big difference between "Gamer Girls" and girls who game.

Girls in a completely different stage of their life than you
Its better to choose to date someone who is in a similar stage of their life than you, if not , you will both have to make a lot of sacrifices to make things work, and if it doesn't work out in the end it was all for nothing.

Girls who hook up
You know who I am talking about and you know why you shouldn't date them. As hard as it is to resist you have to keep it in your head, If it is this easy for you, it is this easy for everyone else.

Please feel free to comment and add to this list.

- If you are not under arrest, you have the right to calmly leave.
- You have the right to a lawyer if you are arrested. Ask for one immediately.
- Regardless of your immigration or citizenship status, you have constitutional rights.

For those of you "Computer People"

Handing this out could save you a lot of time expecially if your parents were born before the the rise of the internet, sometimes they just don't get it. I remember when I was about 7 I had an uncle call the police because he had a virus. HAH. It's so much funnier now when I think about it.

In honor of the Desean Jackson head injury

a refresher on the recovery position.

This is the position you need to put your friends into if they are knocked unconscious or if they are just way to drunk, that way if they do happen to vomit, they will not choke on it and die.

How to pick the best airplane seat

When I was younger there was no such thing as picking your airline seat. You just got that seat that goes along with your ticket, Now with the innovations of e tickets and online payments its common practice to let us costumers pick our preferred seat. This chart is great to find your optimal seats based on what you want to do while you are flying. For the most part I agree with all of them.

Make your own Febreze

With the cold months storming in, and it inevitably being time to shut the windows and doors and turn on your heat, It's been my experience without that constant flow of fresh air that your home can get a wee bit odorous.

OK it can get down right stinky! Especially if you share your home with a big dumb boxer and a love for backyard campfires.

With the state of the economy and heat costing well over a Bagillionzillion dollars a month. I try to save every penny I can. I love the fresh scent Febreze leaves , but it cost more than 5 dollars PER BOTTLE. I have been using this cheap alternative for months now and I can say it works just as good.

What You Need:
1/3 cup White Vinegar
1/2 cup Liquid Fabric Softener
3 cups Water
Spray Bottle

Combine all ingredients in the spray bottle and shake!
Vinegar is a great deodorize, use more or less depending on your needs and don't worry the vinegary smell dissipates very quickly leaving nothing but the nice fabric softener scent.

How to tell time with the sun

Never really had to use this, but its great to know in case your watch and cellphone suddenly stop working at the same time.

How to order espresso

I am sure a lot of people already know these, but I am admittedly coffee illiterate, and its always a nice thing to know what your ordering when you get sent out on a coffee run.

I honestly just prefer drip coffee with a touch of milk and sugar.

Make a burner from pop cans.

I do this just about every time I go camping, works great for eggs and such in the morning.
