Sure, vodka is second only to unicorn tears as the most magical clear potion known to man. But, even so, after reading MSN’s list of 10 weird uses for vodka (fair warning, it’s a 10-page slideshow), it’s hard not to be impressed with all the wonderful things vodka can do. From repelling insects and soothing jellyfish stings to giving your hair a glorious sheen, the claims this alcohol can make seem like they’re right out of an infomercial and you half expect every feat to be met with an enthusiastic, “but wait, there’s more!” However, despite the numerous amazing things vodka is capable of, it seems like using vodka to alleviate the pain from a jellyfish sting is incredibly wasteful when you could just opt to drink the vodka and have a friend pee on you instead.
