A hangover is basically moderate dehydration and all the symptoms associated with it (muscle fatigue, headache, slight nausea). This is caused by the liver trying to process and get rid of the alcohol you consume. One of the most efficient ways to do this is to break the sugars in the alcohol down and pass it out of the body as urine. So the more you drink the more dehydrated you actually become.

No. Even if complete memory transfer were possible consciousness is not. So say there were a clone of you walking around with all your implanted memories. An exact copy in every regard, it still wouldn’t be ‘you’ just a copy. So while it might be possible to have a very close version of yourself live on indefinitely in the distant future, it still won’t be you living on unless science can discover a way to transfer consciousness like what happens at the end of Chappie, or in the Altered Carbon universe.

What you’re describing is called a ‘gravity couch’ and the concept has been around for a long time. While liquid isn’t compressible, the air inside your lungs is so you still need a way around that. As others have said you could use super oxygenated liquid to breathe. It’s been around since the 60’s I think and was used to some success in deep sea diving to avoid bends but using it ALWAYS resulted in the divers developing a pneumonia afterwards so not really worth it.

I didn’t get anything since the debt isn’t mine. It’s some strangers that just happened to have my cell number years ago. Once you cancel your cell service your number goes into a queue and gets assigned again to another person when they start new service. So the person they’re trying to reach hasn’t had this number in at least two years. I’ve explained this to the collection reps half a dozen times but they’re either too inept to fix it or they just don’t care.
