Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Everyone put your hands together for the most hideous traitor in wizarding history. Peter Pettigrew not only sold out his friends to Voldemort, he allowed Sirius to take the fall for it while he himself lived a life of luxury as the Weasleys’ prized pet rat. If not for this son-of-a-blast-ended-skrewt, James and Lily Potter would still be alive—along with Cedric Diggory and all the many wizards who lost their lives during the second coming of the Dark Lord.

Genetic chimerism

A chimera is an ancient Greek mythical creature with the had and neck of a lion, the trunk of a goat and the tail of a snake. In humans, it’s a whole extra set of DNA. Most of the time it goes unnoticed, but sometimes it pops up as “mosaic” skin” or heterochromia (a color differentiation of the eyes). It’s completely harmless, but your DNA won’t always show up the same as your family. One case involved a mother with genetic chimerism who almost lost her children because their DNA test suggested they were not related.

Well, I haven't had any hangover for ages. I hardly remember the last one: I got drunk, I vomitted, I slept then I woke up fine.
As hangover cure, I'd have lemon juice + water (or + fizzy water) + patience + swearing "it's the last time I get drunk" once again.
