Holding your breath is free, so this is definitely more expensive.  But if it really does work, it might be worth it.  Scientists say they’ve finally come up with a product that cures the HICCUPS.

 

 

It’s an L-shaped straw called the HiccAway that launched on Kickstarter a year ago.  And a new study found it works 92% of the time.

 

 

Two holes at the bottom of the straw create a small amount of pressure when you drink water through it.  And that pressure repositions your diaphragm just enough to stop hiccups immediately.  You can get one on Amazon for $15.
