While it had already been an old standby for many, some of us recently learned that Pedialyte, the fruit-flavored drink we give to dehydrated toddlers, makes for an excellent hangover cure.

Scientists analyzed 57 different drinks to find the winner, so we'll be sure to have some Uncola in the fridge ready to go. [Source]
