Some of the strange hangover cures featured include: 1) working out enough to develop a good sweat, then licking the sweat off your own body - and then spitting out the sweat before swallowing, or 2) snorting the ground horn of a rhinoceros up your nose (of course, this is illegal, so it's not recommended).
