    this may seem like a stupid question, but i'm curious... to any of you that have been a complete waste on X day, and had to study for midterms/finals the following day, how are you able to cope with feeling like sh!t?

    Grab a cup coffee. Take in some fresh air & physical activity. Shower. Grab another cup of coffee. Turn on the music, and hit the books.

    i'd always eat a fat meal.

    a ton of sushi rolls or chicken fried steak or Taco Cabana crispy beef tacos with chips and queso were my favorites.

    accompany with a bottomless iced tea with splenda and you're good to go. :thumbup:

    fuel and hydration.

    Find your nearest friendly neighborhood paramedic or nurse and have them hook you up to a banana bag or at least some saline.

    Failing that... pedialyte, ibuprofen, b-complex, and cheerios.

    Yeah. It's actually nothing like hydrazine.

    I'm just a bit fan of hydrazine.

    Well, the name anyway.

    I have pretty poor reactions to most artificial sweeteners though.

    I was completely trashed and stayed up to 3 AM couple nights ago, and the next morning I jumped out of bed and had an interview with my professor for LOR at 10AM

    interview went well.

    drinking a lot of water before you pass out the night before, and maybe even ordering jimmy johns. note: not acceptable to call after 3 am and beg them to open the store so you can have a beach club with no mayo (why were they even answering the phone when the store was closed?)

    It's possible. But it also happens with non-aspartame sweeteners too.

    Also, I don't have brain damage and I'm fully capable of eating other phenylalanine-rich foods without any ill-effects. I ****ing love nuts.

    Oh, I see. I'm not too familiar with PKU disease.

    I hardly ever use artificial sweeteners. If I'm going to have my sugar, just give it to me straight. I want my 31grams of sugar in my one can of coke.

    Haha. I remember a "Lab Screw-ups" thread from a few months back where someone dropped hydrazine on their exposed skin and almost passed out.

    Menudo!

    Find a culture with a rich tradition of chronic alcohol abuse, and they will also have centuries-old methods of dealing effectively with the aftermath.

    Back on topic, I like to drink coffee until I start to seize.

    That usually evens me out.
