    I just read on the BBC health site that apparently "sports drinks" are good before you goto bed after a sesh. Anyone verify or do I have to conduct an experiment?
    That works because when you are on the lash, and pissing all of the time you are losing essential salts which can give you a hangover. Sports drinks replace these salts.

    That would explain why you didn't diagnose a hangover being from dehydration rather than salt loss...alcohol is a diuretic substance after all...
    the extra goodies you get in the sports drink are just a bonus to the real deal.

    Speaking about underage drinking. has anyone else who is over 18 and has id had problems getting served in the Spar. Supposedly its company policy not to serve alcohol to under 21s. Whats the craick with that?!
    I have id problems everywhere- from pubs, bars... even to buying wine from Sainsburys.

    I went to a Navy bar the other night for a friends birthday, showed the bouncer my license and I swear to Jah I have never seen anyone pay so much attention to my face. He even got the UV light to check the hologram and everything. And then I get into the place and it turns out that the birthday girl didn't even have any ID on her anyway!
    And last night I went to a club in Southampton and they were only searching the blokes, empty pockets, looking inside tab packet and everything, gave me a good touching too, yet waving the ladys through! Are women not capable of carrying lethal weapons nowdays?
