4 of 6
An Ig Nobel Prize winning scientist accidentally discovered a foolproof cure for hiccups. I will spare you the unsavory details, but the there was a person who couldn't stop hiccuping for 72 hours, a finger, and a butthole involved. Anyway, that's not important. What is important is that an orgasm results in stimulation of the vagus nerve and that makes hiccups stop. This sounds so much more fun than trying to do that stupid thing where you drink water upside down. I don't care what anyone says, it doesn't work!
