The Dreaded Monday Morning Hangover?
Out of Australia comes true scientific advancement...a hydrating beer. http://www.australiantimes.co.uk/news/news-in-australia/australian-scientists-brew-up-hydrating-beer.htm The line that what is dreaded is the "monday morning" hangover is what got me. Is Sunday a big drinking day in Australia? In my experience the hangover is most likely to be experienced on Saturday or Sunday morning--or at best-Friday. Sure they can come anytime under the right circumstances but I'm unfamiliar with any tradition of getting loaded on Sunday's as to require specially hydrated beer. Nonetheless, on a day when George Will bemoans the sequesters effect on NIH I note those slackers have not been working on this problem at all which belies any plea for increased funding. http://www.mercurynews.com/opinion/ci_23872108/george-will-nih-research-shows-worst-harm-sequester Thank God for Australia and its scientific priorities.
