Got a hangover and feeling desperate? Give these a shot over aspirin.
Or don’t. Because these so-called “hangover cures” are either hard to obtain or just off-the-wall insane. But hey, it’s definitely a blast to get a peek into the minds of different cultures to see how they deal (or dealt) with recovering after a rager, and from Ancient Rome to Mongolia, we have the goods for you below.
Do note we make no promises as to the efficacy of any of these, mmmkay?
1. ROASTED SHEEP INTESTINES + OWL EGGS | ANCIENT ROME

So, you’re chilling in ancient Rome and have that big chariot race or gladiatorial death match coming up later (we went as stereotypical as we could there), but you’ve got a banging-ass headache from all the carousing you engaged in the night before. What do you do? You down multiple raw owl eggs, apparently.
And if you want a preventive measure as opposed to just a reactionary one, Pliny the Elder himself apparently suggested lining your tummy with roasted sheep intestines before “hitting the town.” Yum?
