2006 a man checked himself into a hospital in Glasgow, Scotland complaining of
headaches and blurry vision which had troubled him for the past 4 weeks.
Doctors ran a battery of test but could not find anything wrong with the patient
until he finally revealed that after a domestic dispute he turned to beer and
over the course of 4 days consumed 60 pints or 35 liters of the frothy ale.
The over consumption of beer resulted in a rare condition called cerebral venous
sinus thrombosis which can cause seizures, impaired consciousness, loss of
vision and neurological damage.
Treatment of his condition included long-term blood-thinning and after slightly
more than 6 months the patient was cured of his vision problems and headaches,
but he managed to capture the record for the world's longest hangover.
