Hangover cure ...

... Ireland’s Diaspora, Yet Again - NYTimes.com. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Memory magnifies, and the vessel I recall is the size of an ocean liner, its sheer flank beetling over the dock, its mighty smokestacks puffing out great gray cumuli and its hooter shaking the air with its deep-throated bellowings.


I don't think it is memory that magnifies. The fact is, when we are small, everything looks bigger. To revisit the house where one spent one's earliest childhood is always a shock, because it turns out to be so much smalleer than it seemed when we lived there.

  1. Natural ingredients are best to prevent ingredient. Detoxicated is a hangover supplement that made with the high-quality natural ingredients. If you take this supplement before drinking alcohol then it will reduce the hangover effects. Morning recovery
