    Hold your breath for 15 minutes. That normally cures it.

    My method, which works for me and everybody I have taught it to (go me) is to really concentrate hard on the hiccups. Say to yourself "I wonder what it feels like to hiccup and know it is going to happen" and then you won't hiccup anymore, because you're concentrating on it happening so hard! Just as a watched pot never boils, a concentrating hiccuper never hiccups. Try it, you might like it!

    get someone to prod you on your back on the right side around your diaphragm. if they hit a certain point they go... sounds odd, but i got them in philosophy the other week and a guy did that to me and they did go.

    The method that ALWAYS works for me is to distrub your normal breathing pattern for about a minute. Start breathing really fast, then slow, then deep and slow, the shallow and fast etc etc - completely random. Has never failed.
