Ancient Greek and Roman Hangover Remedies.

Fried Canaries for hangovers

If you ever payed any attention in school to your ancient Greek and Roma mythology lessons, you know they were full of some pretty disturbing behavior. And hangover folklore from these civilizations picks up right where they left off.
