Via James Joyner, a very informative--though sadly not particularly useful--article on hangovers.

Here's what I want to know:  how come I never got hangovers until I was about 25?  And how come matters have now progressed so that I can enjoy the full benefit of a hangover without getting drunk first?

Also, how come I'm channeling Andy Rooney?

A well.  Happy Saint Patrick's day from both of us.
