Tonight is Halloween. Kent State has one of the largest Halloween celebrations in the country. And tomorrow, we will all get an extra hour of sleep to nurse off those hangovers. It’s Daylight Savings. Daylight Savings was initiated by Benjamin Franklin to reserve candle wax.
Now back to hangovers. At yesterday’s lab meeting, the boss, Dr. D. Glass, was telling us about a recent Mythbusters episode where they dissected the common adage of “beer before liquor never been sicker” and “liquor before beer in the clear.” Apparently, the cast of Mythbusters discovered the hard way that drinking beer all night results in unbearable hangovers.
I heart science.
