Party animals of Reddit, What did you drink before your worst hangover?

A hell of a lot of absinthe. I've never felt so terrible than I did after that. I don't even remember what happened that night, all I know is that I must have fallen asleep in a park because I got home hours later than I should have done and was covered in mud.

Okay, first off, the twist ending threw me (I've had some absinthe though). Second, if I were your English teacher and was grading this with a rubrick, I would definitely give you 6/6 on word choice and vocab. Dead-flesh was pimp. You transformed purple for me (straight-up cadaver-purple, the kind of purple that makes you instantly concerned-purple). And these might have been mistakes, but omitting the "w" from "squawked" and switching the "a" for an "o" in "scalding" were really dope moves too. I know I don't even gotta mention the panic attack (but I did anyways because, yes). Last but MOST, you fucking NAILED the tl;dr.

It may not seem like it at this instant, but I help doctoral students write their dissertations (including on narrative theory, literature, & semiotics type shit) and fuck those guys, you rock.

Also I'm glad you still got legs.

It is not hallucinogenic, that is just a myth. I believe in Canada, and most countries, absinthe can contain wormwood (and historically must to be absinthe, despite there being no legal definition), but the maximum amount of thujone present (the component found in wormwood that is mistakenly assumed to be hallucinogenic) is regulated by each province.

Actually, no study has shown thujone, the alleged psychoactive component in absinthe, to be psychoactive in the levels contained in even the most historically strong absinthe.

>Thujone, once widely believed to be an active chemical in absinthe, is a GABA antagonist; and while it can produce muscle spasms in large doses, there is no direct evidence to suggest it causes hallucinations. It has been speculated that reports of hallucinogenic effects of absinthe were most likely due to poisonous adulterants being added to cheaper versions of the drink in the 19th century.
