re: Drinking up-side-down- hiccups -- My brother taught it to me a few years ago. It has never failed me yet. Just get as much water in your mouth as you can, put your head between your knees, and swallow. Every once in a while you'll have to do it two or three times, but it usually works on your first try.

Drinking water upside down is the only thing that works for me. It NEVER fails. Just make sure that you bend down at the waist and put your head down, and then drink with the rim of the glass on your upper lip instead of the lower lip, just like the person before me said. I have done this for years and it is the only thing that works. When I tell people to do it they think I am crazy, but when it works they are amazed. :D

I always try holding my breath first, as that is the easiest, but if that doesn't work, I drink upside down. Bend over at the waist and take a drink of water, putting the rim of the cup on your top lip instead of the bottom one. It is important to swallow while still upside down. This has had and almost 100% success rate for me, although it gets me some strange looks :P
