The best cure for a hangover? SPRITE. A new study has found that the lemon and lime drink is the best at helping the body process alcohol. Chinese scientists examined 57 drinks - from herbal teas to fizzy drinks and found that some helped to speed up the process where the body breaks down alcohol, helping relieve a hangover quicker. Our take? There’s always some hot new hangover cure out there. From Pedialyte to Coconut water, people will drink anything in an attempt to feel better
, but the only real answer to a crippling hangover is to drink less alcohol and drink more water the night before. I know, we’re like ground-breaking scientist people and stuff.

Hollywood Hot Mess –
The follow up to Sharknado and Sharknado 2? Avalanche Sharks!!! Seriously. NO, seriously. Here’s the official synopsis: ‘Spring break in the mountains: snowboarding, beer, drunken co-eds in bikinis. As the yearly Bikini Ski Day party descends on a small mountain town, something lurks beneath the snow. When an unwitting rider causes an avalanche, it awakens a huge, menacing, prehistoric Snow Shark! With a newfound taste for human flesh, the Snow Shark picks off the snow bunnies mercilessly. Cut off from help by mountainous terrain and blinding snow, the local sheriff must make an unlikely alliance with a motley crew of snowboarders to take down the Snow Shark before the white hills run red with blood!’
