    I’ve been there a couple times. Broke my nose once and put my head through a wall another time. Those hangovers suck.

  2. Aidan says:

    Acute Hypervitaminosis A, part 2! Here, we see all the rest of the textbook symptoms! Headache, blurred vision, dizziness, and loss of muscle coordination!

  3. SSpiffy says:

    And all the mead had nothing to do with it?

  4. TekServer says:

    Probably not as much as an herbivore eating liver.


  5. Mark Antony says:

    Although it certainly isn’t helping.

  6. BunnyRock says:

    Bear in mind that the Hag has been giving her poppy milk. To heck with Hypervitaminosis A, at least she threw up the liver before it could make it into her small intestine. I mean Hypervitaminosis A is horrible, in the latter stages your skin basically peels off as too many arctic explorers found out after snacking on polar bear liver (the rest of the polar bear isn’t too healthy either, they tend to he crawling with parasites especially Trichinella which does horrible things to human muscles is you consume any).

    But in the short them whats more likely to knock you out, Hypervitaminosis A or mixing opiates, and unrefined opiates at that, with alcohol? Bad move.

  7. Hunter says:

    And again, Digger falls unconscious.

  8. TekServer says:

    That was a good point, BR; I had forgotten about the poppy milk.

    The extreme doses of Ed’s warrior herbs probably didn’t help much either (gods only know what wonderful chemicals were in that tea … ).

    With a few exceptions, for most poisoning type cases puking until you feel like you’re turning inside out is actually a good thing, at least in the long run …


  9. Tindi says:

    Including getting exceptionally drunk, Tek. If you throw up directly after having the last drink, that drink hasn’t had a chance to absorb all the way yet. You’ll still feel very very crappy, but you’ll be at least one drink less drunk than you think you are!

  10. JET73L says:

    Oh, dear. Shall we take a look at what Digger has recently consumed?
    -Testosterone-increasing unidentified herbs
    -unidentified herbs for healing and pain (some of which were made into a poultice and applied directly to a wound which may or may not have reopened)
    -hyena liver (Digger is an herbivore and hyena liver, as already mentioned, likely has massive amounts of Vitamin A)
    -an unidentified purgative, which is probably at least formulated to work well with alcohol

    …and various other, more normal things, such as wombat sandwiches, human soup, and possibly (caffeine-rich) normal tea.
    It’s a wonder that Digger took this long to collapse (not counting passing out drunk). Digger could hardly do more damage if she were /trying/ to surreptitiously poison herself.

    Heh, I almost replied to the first comment with a “dude, I’ve been there too” before I noticed I’d made it myself, two years ago. The Internet is weird.
