"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."
Bernhard Schlink

Research has finally addressed a critical question: what kind of drinks make you the most hung over, and why? They claim that it's not just the impurities in things like plastic-bottle vodka, but the drink in question's content of congeners (complex organic molecules), like methanol. Thus, by this measurement, the hangover-y-ness of booze ranks something like: brandy, red wine, rum, whiskey, white wine, gin, vodka. I don't really get hangovers (knock on wood!!!) so I can't say; does this sound right to anyone? I mean, isn't it ultimately just a matter of volume?

From duh-land, we have a study suggesting that massage might make infants less stressed. More interesting to parents is that it may help them sleep too, though I can't help but picture this concept going really, really badly. Or hilariously: yuppie baby massage parlors!!! More fun for evangelicals!
