Hangover.net logo

Don’t be mislead by this post’s small imagery. We know (probably better than most) that hangovers are no small thing. And being that both Xmas and New Year’s happen to fall midweek this year, chances are you’ll be whimpering in your cube the next two Wednesdays hoping the office fatties haven’t mowed through the Hickory Farm baskets. But before you bight the plastic off that salami stick, take a look at Hungover.net. They’ve got hundreds of proven remedies, homemade cures, and reader recommended strategies to kick the dog that bit you. Just select what you had to drink, pick a body part that hurts the most, and barfo! A recipe for your toxic nightmare is displayed. We hear they’re also working on a website that provides step-by-step instructions for ruining your roommate’s credit.

OCCY, BYE BABY

Having led a life packed with drama and a career full of headlines, the irony wasn’t lost on anyone that Occy’s final exit from competitive surfing was mundane at best. After losing to Troy Brooks in Round 3 of the Pipe Masters, he was carried up the beach on the shoulders of his countrymen, and into the record books for retiring as the oldest competitor on the WCT. Occ’s story and amazing comeback to take the title in 1999 at the age of 33 really is the stuff of legends. And now as he makes the transition from competitive surfer to icon, we can only hope that the rest of his life is fit for the king he is.
