Have you ever gone out drinking with Koreans? I have and I can tell you that they can drink something serious. In fact, according to the World Health Organization they drink the most of any country in Asia. 12.3 litres of alcohol per year to be exact. Damn. So, with all that drinking there is naturally a lot of hangovers. The South Koreans have come up with a cure that sounds awesome. The Gyeondyo-bar is an ice cream bar that cures hangovers. That seems like a contradiction since eating ice cream too fast will give you a headache, but there you go. The ice cream contains 0.7 percent oriental raisin tree fruit juice which is apparently a scientifically proven thing that helps with intoxication. What a world!

They need to open one of those here in New York. I'm a little hungover, I'm not going to lie. I had to drink a bit after last night's episode of Game of Thrones. I would love to go eat some ice cream and get better. I wonder where I could get some raisin tree fruit?
