fuuuuck meeeee. Never would I have thought this would happen in my lifetime. Curing cancer? Sure. Hiccups? Impossible.

I heard the invention of the device went smoothly without any hiccups.

No joke, I’m currently hiccuping so hard my diaphragm and chest hurts. I need this.

Interesting idea hopefully one day we no longer have hiccups

Or maybe one day we will understand why we have hiccups and find out that it’s important.

Evolution is like a brute-force attack that tries out random mutations over time, and usually keeps them as long as they don’t affect chances of reproduction. As long as a bug isn’t critical it’ll continue to get copied to the next offspring. Not every phenomenon that evolves has a purpose.

I’m sorry but I’m skeptical that all things which look “weird” and “buggy” to us are actually inherently bad. There always is a reason for everything. We just don’t know it yet.

Simply drinking a whole glass of water, without pausing and without breathing, cures hiccups 100% instantly. Using a separate gadget is unnecessary. If the hiccups are caused by some disease, this gadget is also useless, this should then be treated by a doctor.
