9 July 2012. Sergei Yolkin’s World. A Pill for the Pie-Eyed?

A Pill for the Pie-Eyed?

Sergei Yolkin



The man’s holding a pickle, a stereotypical Russian snack whilst imbibing… another well-known nibble is processed cheese. Russians do NOT drink without eating something… only drunks drink without eating, dontcha know!


The Telegraph reported that scientists managed to invent a pill that neutralises the action of alcohol. The researchers explained that these pills might allow someone to drink alcohol and not get drunk. In addition, the inventors went on to say that they could relieve a hangover. American and Australian scientists successfully tested the new drug on mice. They hope that the pill would have the same effect on people as it does on rodents.
