    C'mon man! You practically live in K-town in LA!

    And apparently...you drink a lot? LOL

    You should practically be imbibing this stuff by the bucket.

    And what about chicken and waffles? Isn't like LA, an epicenter of that venerable combination?

    Otherwise, anything starchy, fattening, sugary, blah blah blah. Hangover brunch is an excellent way to bond with bleary eyed comrades.

    I like Korean food (and Korean women) but if I am hungover...

    Usually I don't eat at all. If I can eat, it's a large bacon cheeseburger and cajun fries.

    Dude, do you know why you get a hangover? Because you lose too much body water when you drink a hell of a lot. Ironically, you can also get a hangover if you go to the sauna too much without really drinking enough water. You get a headache like bloody hell, feel dizzy and nauseated. So the best thing is:

    When you drink, alternate between alcoholic beverages and water. Then you will never get a hangover (preventative measure).

    On the other hand, I cannot really say what you should eat in that case. I think it depends on the person. Some people might get ill if they eat heavily. In that case, eat so-called "baby foods," i.e. dry toast, apples, bananas, and anything bland. No fussy things that have lots of acids and stuff. That's if you have a sensitive stomach.

    However, you might have a stomach of steel, as some people here seem to have. The best bet would be to neutralize the acid somehow. Perhaps eating a big meal helps to iron it out, but I can't imagine that. *shrugs*

    Could be talking out my ass though. I haven't really had all that many hangovers. Seriously, the preventative measure works wonders. One-to-one ratio - and no wuking furries, you're good to go. Seriously.

    Saltines are usually the easiest thing for my stomach to handle, water if you can too... and if you can't keep any amount of food or water down, you're screwed, go back to bed.

    I thought it was the other way 'round; a mild alcohol poisoning?

    It's withdrawal. If you die while you're drinking, it's more likely alcohol poisoning.

    Oh snap, this is what I was thinking of:

    "Another factor contributing to a hangover are the products from the breakdown of ethanol via liver enzymes. Ethanol is converted to acetaldehyde by the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase, and then from acetaldehyde to acetic acid by the enzyme acetaldehyde dehydrogenase. Acetaldehyde (ethanal) is between 10 and 30 times more toxic than alcohol itself, as well as being carcinogenic and mutagenic."
