I have to agree with this.

I can barely function as a human being and avoid interacting with others at all costs when I have a hangover here. When I was back in England last year I was surprised at how relatively close I was to an ordinary member of society even after a particularly heavy night on the European beers.
I do think the overnight dehydration factor plays a big part in hot countries. Water and electrolyte loss contribute a lot to a hangover.
That was my reasoning, too. However when I went back to England last summer it was an extraordinarily hot summer for England and, with no air conditioning at night, I must have been dehydrating a lot more than I would be here.

These days I make sure I mix up an electrolyte solution or two when I have a hangover and it does seem to bring me a little closer to reality.

I wish I had your sense. :)

The electrolyes are something which I never think of day to day, but then again I don't tie one on so often nowadays, it kind of creeps up on me.

When I was a young drinker in my first job an older guy told me 'as soon as you get home after a session drink as much water as you can force inside you'. I always remembered his words. 2-3 pints is all I can usually manage after a night on the sauce, but I do think it helps the next morning (the egg and bacon sandwich is the cavalry).

It's good advice I think.

It depends on your bladder capacity... I can manage a small glass of water (though rarely do; one last beer from the fridge always seems more inviting) but any more and I'll be up and down all night...!

:D - that indeed true, I'm really talking about the 20 year old cameljockey. Now I have to decide if I want a good night's sleep or less pain in the morning.

But, hey, at least we still wake up (during the night, I mean)!

:D

For re-hydration (and for when I'm feeling literally "out of salts") I dissolve a sachet of Sea-Lyte in water. B250 for a box of 50 from the local pharmacy. A pinch of salt in your water/Coke/Fanta is an alternative...

Chaz14, the Zappa quote was borrowed from Jon Hendicks. it's a line from one of his songs on the Sing a Song of Basie album, called Little Pony.

1 teaspoon of salt and 7 teaspoons of sugar in 1 litre of water. This is what aid agencies in disaster zones use where diseases such as a cholera have taken hold and no preprepared products are available. At university I used to keep a couple of bottles made-up in the fridge, for those impromptu parties. Tastes horrible but works.

One of my former colleagues many years ago had a fairly straightforward concoction so he could face up to morning muster, 2 Berroccas in a can of coke! (Although if it was a range day it was pretty obvious by the pained expression on his face!)

It will be interesting to see how this works out. I can see some tourist in the 7-11 with his mouth under the tap. :shock: :laugh: Pete :cheers:

DRAFT BEER AT 7-ELEVEN GETS OKAY, HERE’S WHERE TO FIND IT

http://www.khaosodenglish.com/news/busi ... eres-find/

"BANGKOK — Want some pork buns, discounted candy or Singha on draft to go with that?

Draft beer, usually sold only at bars and festivals, is making a heady entry into the nation’s ubiquitous 7-Elevens. After inspecting a prototype machine at a Chinatown store, a public health spokesman declared Thursday that pumping beer in that form does not run afoul of strict alcohol control laws."......

7-ELEVEN PULLS DRAFT BEER AFTER PROTEST :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

http://www.khaosodenglish.com/news/busi ... r-protest/

Let's all put on our grey Mao jackets now and wave our little red books. Very selective it appears as to what protests are allowed, and when political gatherings of more than 5-6 people are allowed, and yes indeed, this is political. :bullshit:

BANGKOK — Cups won’t be running over with draft beer at 7-Eleven stores, after all.

Less than a week after a trial of of draft beer machines debuted, 7-Eleven announced Friday it suspended the service nationwide following protests by anti-alcohol protesters.

A representative of CP All, the conglomerate that owns all Thai 7-Eleven stores, said the company would take into account opinions from all sides before making a final decision whether to bring the service back.

“The protesters think it’s not good, but customers think it’s good,” assistant manager Danudech Rerkcharoen said. “We have to ask society whether people think it’s a good idea. Right now people are divided into two, three sides.”....

I am out of touch. What was that, draught beer to be served at 7-11s?

Beer stocks - what's happening?

Post by Vital Spark » Thu Oct 12, 2017 11:41 pm

Does anyone know what's going on with beer stocks in Thailand. Our local Tesco Lotus had no cases of beer - just individual bottles. I put it down to their dreadful stock control. Went to Makro today - no Archa, no Chang. Just Leo (limited), Tiger, and Singha. There was also no gin.

Out Tesco has had cases of beer blocking the aisles at the old price. Just disappeared completely a couple of days ago. I'm expecting them to re-appear soon at the post tax-hike price.

I'd imagine people are "panic buying" because of the uncertainty of supply over the next couple of weeks. I did my own spot of stocking up last night and there were three other couples also getting their supplies in. It was about 8pm and the beer fridge was half empty; I don't know if this was because the staff hadn't had time to replenish them, or if it's because they were genuinely running out.
