When you've had too much to drink, and you are too far from home, a few cups of strong coffee will sober you up so you can get home........
1. Detroit Tigers
2. the Southern Cross
3. an ultra-sound of the heart
4. on it's feet
5. Ecuador
6. Clownfish
7. Broccoli and Cauliflower
8. Strawberries
It is widely believed that consuming coffee when drunk will sober a person up, but this myth has now been debunked by researchers. While alcohol may lessen the effects of caffeine, caffeine does not reverse the impaired decision-making brought on by alcohol. The mistaken belief that it does could have tragic results, as people too impaired to drive may choose to get behind the wheel after downing a few cups of coffee. Furthermore, because caffeine makes people feel more alert, it makes it harder for those who are drunk to recognize that their cognitive processes remain impaired.

I did well with all the food related bits, not so well with the rest!

Hey, my theory about coffee has to do with it being a diuretic. It makes you go to the bathroom more, so it doesn't get metabolized. That presumes of course that you are drinking a ton of water too. LOL. OK, I know thats a faulty theory, but I like it anyway.
