Coffee enema. Detoxifies the liver. Feels great! ;D

Hmmm...whatever floats your boat I guess.  I prefer my coffee in a cup.
But back in the final days of my college years, I found that drinking  a little less alcohol in the first place turned out to probably be a much better method.  ???

p.s.  a spoonful of horseradish every day or two has been shown to detoxify the liver as well.  It usually clears your sinuses pretty effectively too!  ;D

A scoop of yeast slurry the night before...or something like that. Read it once before but I was drunk and don't remember.

I adapted my hangover prevention methods after reading that article. It's mostly prevention though, not a cure. Drink a water for every drink I have. Eat. Take Advil before bed. If that doesn't fix it, salt, water and caffeine.

Actually Washington and Colorado will be the skinnier States because everyone knows that marijuana is a gateway drug. So they burn off those extra pounds once they start smoking crack, slamming meth, and huffing jenkum.

I call bulls***! 
The legend claims 2008, but that map has not been accurate since 1959.  There are 50 states now.

I agree with Major's assessment of couthness, but question the genuineness of his southernness.
Any good southerner knows the word is swimps, not that yankeefied "shrimp" misspelling and mispronunciation.   8)

My understanding is aggressive dog hair is a fine hangover cure.   :D

Drink several glasses of water, which assures that my body will wake me up in a few hours to be rid of it. Drink more water at that point - repeat. Supplement with advil.

Though lately I just prefer to not drink too much.

Appropriate topic as I had a tremendous hangover yesterday. And almost always never have one like this which I attribute to a lack of booze-mop and over-consumption. My fault for letting the bartender pour me such large drinks... Took me out for the whole damn day and was in bed before 9pm and no supper.

The cure?

I was going to say bong-hits, coffee and water. Vitamin pill. And a shower followed by greasy food.

I normally don't get hangovers but sometimes when I do I find just pushing on with some beers in the late morning and drinking all day is always the best cure. The next day, for some reason, the hangover is always much milder and usually something much easier to deal with.

As far as my genuine "southerness" here's a couple a few of things to consider.

1) I grew up in central PA and everyone knows PA is Pittsburgh on the left, Philadelphia on the right and Alabama in the middle.

2) Even though I didn't move south until I was 22 my parents were both raised in Memphis and I spent many summers there.

3) My friends "yankee" mothers food was always CRAP!

4) I married a genuine southern girl.

5) I've lived in Alabama half my live now.

6) While my accent is still yank I can fake southern accent reeaaal gooood now. ;)

you guys must be slow, it didn't take me nearly that long to learn this lesson. (maybe 5 beers NYE for me. in bed by 11:00 local time) and this from a guy that learned to fall asleep with my eyes open so I didn't get the spins. (best way in the world to freak out a girlfriend by the way)

"You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on."
"If you drink, don't drive. Don't even putt."

I have two remedies for the spins

1 - sleep on the bathroom floor or in the tub. Outside on the concrete works as well.

2 - if I am able to get to bed, one hand on the wall above my head, and the opposite foot on the floor.

Best hangover cure is to prevent one. Before you drink, during and after, pop vitamin B complex, and drink plenty of water. I have another friend who swears by this. Its never let her or I down. Last weekend, I may or may not,  have had a lady guest here for the night. I kept pushing B's and water down her. The next morning, she was amazed at the lack of hangover. A slight headache. I gave some advil and more water, and she was go to go.

Deano had some great lines.  I have heard that all he ever had in his glass on stage was colored water.  He was an alcoholic and could let himself have anything with alcohol to drink or he would fall off the wagon.  He was the only sober one in the theater every night.

Eating a banana and taking ibuprofen with several glasses of water before turning in will put a major dent in a hangover.

If you've never had a hangover from homebrew, you obviously have not had occasion to consume enough in one outing.   8)

Anybody from the southwest knows that hot green chile kicks hangover butt in no time.  We used to go to a little cafe in the morning and get a $2.00 bowl of green chile stew-lots of green chile, a couple of beans and a small morsel of pork and by the time we got back to the house all the alcohol was sweated out and we felt great.

In Texas jalapeno is a suitable substitute for green chile.

Alternate answer:  They didn't become a state until 1889.  From what I understand Washington Territory had no skin in the conflict, but was part of the Union.  Oregon on the other hand, did have volunteers in the Civil War on the Union side.
