Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Home remedies that don't work but you do anyways because you're a silly goose.

    Ginger does work with mild stomach trouble.

    Not to say that there's necessarily any of it in store-bought ginger ale though.

    The gargling salt water thing never did it for my sore throats as a kid. Then I tried lemon water and it worked like a charm.

    I can redeem this thread. I take it's weight on my shoulders.


    So I sliced my hand up pretty bad last month. Had to get stitches, severed a bunch of nerves and such. Instead of antibiotic ointment, my doctor told me to use raw natural honey. Holy shit does that work way better than antibiotic ointment. I was quite impressed.

    For anything clogging the chest, sinuses, nose/throat, or for sore throats related to cough or cold:

    Water so hot you can barely drink it, fresh minced garlic, (a fuck-ton of) cayenne, honey, lemon (and if you can manage), about a half-oz. of whiskey.

    It is one of those things that line cooks all tend to have imbedded in their brains, and it's really handy for clearing you out, soothing everything, and putting a nice coat of "get fucking healthy" from the top of the sinuses to the bottom of your lungs.

    It has saved people from getting lung butter or snot in their food in the past, and probably will for years to come.

    Also works if you're not stuck in a hot kitchen. Do not sip, tip the fucker back, garlic bits and all. It hurts.


    Bleach for burns instead of cold water or butter... Cold water shocks the nerves and makes them more receptive to heat and throbbing. Luke-warm water is your best because it will still pull heat from your skin without shocking it. Bleach dulls the nerves and all you need to do is apply it to the burn, count to five, and rinse it off. It won't hurt the rest of your skin for that short of a period but it will sure as hell quiet down inflamed nerves. I'm not saying it's good for you, but it definitely works.

    Rane, you lazy bastard, you can shut the hell up.

    When I had left-over pain from a root canal for a month, I got a little vial of clove oil on the recommendation of a pharmacist and rubbed it on the surrounding gums from time to time. Anbesol didn't work, but this killed all my pain (for a short period of time).

    In my family salt water cures everything.

    Sore throat? Salt water.

    Cut? Throw some salt water on that shit.

    Sinuses clogged? You better snort some damn salt water up there.

    Alcohol is in most home remedies because drunk people don't give a fuck. Same reason Freud gave out coke to cure mental problems. When your skiing down Mount Scarface, you don't worry about shit.
