How to cure hiccups

My kids were discussing cures for hiccups, so I offered one: cut off your head. While I've not personally tried this cure, I'm pretty sure it would resolve the issue of hiccuping, stopping the hiccups nearly immediately. Curious: why is "hiccup" also spelled "hiccough"? Seems weird.

On a completely different topic, you may have seen on my Facebook or twitter that I'm considering attempting to write a Facebook app (just for fun). But I'm idea-less at the moment. Anyone have any cool ideas they'd like to see in a Facebook app (one that's not already out there, or that's poorly implemented)? If you have any ideas for such a thing, let me know, and we'll try to work out some details (and I'll try to figure out how to write such a thing).

I don't think I'd want to give that "cure" a try. As far as facebook apps go, no ideas, sorry. I'm not creative in that way, or in any way, actually. Happy Thanksgiving!

I'll bet you are creative in some way; after all, we're made in God's image, and I think (based on the universe and everything in it) He's pretty creative... :)

It's funny you should say that. This morning during my devotional time, the author the book I'm using said that we need to stop berating ourselves because we insult God when we do that. Of course, he wasn't suggesting that we become arrogant, but pretty much said what you did. Neat! ;0)

wv: 'mantio' the ratio of men in a room. "The mantio was 10 to 1."
