Here's a really random one that's always worked for me:

Think about pineapples.

'Good' is not the same as 'nice'.
'No, murder is running your broadsword through someone because he worships a different God to you... Or is that evangelism? I get confused.'
When they discover the centre of the universe, a lot of people are going to be disappointed - They are not it.
I don't object to the concept of a deity but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.

I get a glass of water, put a paper towel over the top of the glass and slowly drink the water through the paper towel.

It always works for me when I get the hiccups and it has worked for everyone I have suggested it to, that has tried it.

But in all honesty, I think the cure for hiccups is psychosomatic, if one "believes" a certain trick will work, it will.

I tried this once. I just finished up with hiccups and water up my nose :P

I'm sure some cures are there for the amusement of the patient's friends :D

Ohhh... please don't tell me I'm the only person who's been trying to drink it straight from the far side of the glass. Feel kind of stupid now :P

I heard that swallowing air while drinking is meant to work. Not sure though.

I've always done the 'take a deep breath and hold it as long as you can' method. It works.

i thankfully don't get them very often, but when i do it's usually because i ate too fast, or if i eat spicy food.
hiccups are annoying at best, and extremely disrupting when they won't go away. this is one experiment i think you should do a pass on lol

stand up, breath through the nose and out through the mouth a few times, usually works quickly.

Hold your breath and take seven sips of whatever (preferably water). Works for me.

Drinking from the far side of the glass. Works every time.
