Water. Water, PLEASE! Help, I need water, arrrgh.....
Just came home from eating at one of those Chinese buffets, not having remembered from the last experience HOW MUCH GODDAM SALT they put in that food.

I think I'm going to go outside, stick the gaarden hose in my mouth, and turn it on full blast.

Never again.

4. My dear Redstone!
I hear ya!

That was my experience in Europe, of all places...the salt!

I was thirsty all the time, plus bloated...

:P

Good luck with your thirst!

6. Even after two applications of beer, the inside of my mouth feels
like it's been sandpapered.

Never, EVER again. And I actually LIKE salt. Or I did until tonight, anyway.

7. Beer will dehydrate you further, you know...
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...

All things in moderation...

And that includes moderation!

ALCOHOL causes dehydration, as you very well know, LOL!

10. Lol, sending you water
It's probably also that monosodium glutamate (msg).

Take some vitamin B-6; it will help your body get rid of the sodium.

And also, drink tons of water, especially distilled water, if you have access to it.

13. And potassium helps you balance it out too.
I never realized why I suddenly started having regular cravings for potatoes and bananas after I started working a job that had me sweating heavily until I found that out. :P

16. Nah, I called my bartender. Unlike 911 or my lawyer, he has beer for me.
