Having already teased the world with exclusives in the form of purported cures for AIDS and cancer, North Korea is now tackling a truly profound scientific advancement: hangover-proof liquor. North Korean government officials announced their invention of this so-called "elixir of life" via a statement to the state-sponsored Pyongyang Times, the Daily Dot reports.
"Koryo Liquor, which is made of six-year-old Kaesong Koryo insam [ginseng], known as being highest in medicinal effect, and the scorched rice, is highly appreciated by experts and lovers as it is suave and causes no hangovers," officials claim, which definitely makes this sound like the greatest drink of all time. If a cursory Googling is any indication, North Korea isn't exactly keen on sharing this stuff with their worldly brethren.
Sadly, North Korea's alleged achievement doesn't extend to all meanings of the word "hangover," meaning there is still no way to completely eradicate the world of The Hangover Part II and The Hangover Part III.
