Just looking at this makes our eyes burn!
What could potentially be the best hangover cure according to new research?
A) Not boozing at all, dummy.
B) Running backwards for 30 minutes.
C) Eating soup made from the actual hair of a dog.
D) Drinking Sprite. A team of Chinese scientists from Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou found that the fizzy drink could be helpful for lessening the effects of a hangover. According to their research, which was published in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal Food and Function, we experience those terrible symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and a headache because of the process of our body trying to metabolise all those shots from the night before. After testing 57 different drinks, the researchers found that Sprite was the most effective for speeding up the process of breaking down alcohol, meaning the hangover effects aren't as pronounced.
What unusual protocol do Ikea stores in China employ?
A) They knowingly use weird meat in their Swedish meatballs.
B) They have cheap labour available to assemble furniture.
C) They offer dining room sets suited for spirits of deceased ancestors.
D) They change the sheets on their display beds every day because of customers taking naps. The seven Ikea stores on mainland China and three in Hong Kong report that visitors often come in to enjoy the air conditioning and take naps, while some also bring picnic baskets with them, according to UPI. As a result, Ikea stores in China have accommodated the nap-seeking guests (and maintained hygiene standards) by having workers change the sheets daily.
What tactic did a woman use to try to rob a gold shop in Potharam municipality in Ratchaburi province?
A) She asked politely.
B) She unleashed monkeys in the store as a distraction.
C) She unsuccessfully tried using a huge magnet to attract the gold.
D) She threw chilli powder in the shop owner's eyes. Jennisa Jirawej, 35, visited the Sukanya gold shop about two weeks ago, and posed as a customer according to the Bangkok Post. After loitering around for a while, she seized the moment and hurled the dried spice straight at the owner's face, grabbed five gold necklaces worth B205,000, and then ran out of the shop. Despite a burning sensation in her eye that probably rivalled syphilis, the shop owner was able to call out to bystanders for help and they successfully detained Jennisa until police arrived to arrest her.
