“Hurrpp.. Somebody stop the room please, I'd like to get off...”
Seasickness is the feeling of becoming nauseous, tired, or otherwise feeling ill while riding a form of aquatic travel. It was invented by the Polynesians in the year 300 B.C. after one of them decided to make a boat. Bastards.

How to avoid being Seasick?
- Avoid Fresh Air: A little known fact is that the 'Fresh' Air of the sea actually induces the Seasickness through the saltiness in it. Avoid it as much as possible. Lock yourself in your cabin and breath the same air.
- Try to Eat as Little as Possible: If you're gonna vomit, you might as well not vomit a BUNCH. Avoid eating unless necessary, and NEVER eat saltines, pretzels, or peppermints. Ginger Ale guarantees that you will experience Seasickness.
- Drink Alcohol: If you're going to vomit, it's probably better that you vomit because you drank too much, not because you're seasick. Chug that shit.
- Get as Little Sleep as Possible: Less sleep means less consciousness and less awareness to the fact that you're on a boat. Ask your doctor to see if he can put you on some Provigil or Nuvigil.
- Don't Get on a Boat in the First Place: Who cares if your significant other bought those cruise-line tickets to the Bahamas for your honeymoon? You can't go, because you'll get seasick. Tell them to take someone else, like their parents or something.
- Stop Listening to the Beach Boys: Listening to the Beach Boys talk about nothing but the Beach and the Water is an easy way to get Sick of the Sea. Turn the radio off.
I did everything, and I still got Seasick! What's my best course of action?!?
That's fine, not every land-lubber can handle the pure power that is the sea. Here's your best course of action
- Find your nearest edge-of-the-boat or trash can. This can be easily found by a bunch of other people puking their guts out as well. Follow the retching sound.
- Spill your guts. You were already gonna do this anyway, better to not create a mess for the staff. Make sure you stand AS CLOSE to the other pukers as possible.
- If your seasickness is incredibly intense, the best option would be to simply abandon ship. You'll be able to register the waves then, and won't be seasick anymore! My strategy is to always bring a 200 ft rope and a life preserver with me, and whenever I feel sea-sick, I throw it off the back of the ship and jump off! Just make sure to avoid those propellors, water grues, and sharks!
