comment Does ale give less of a hangover than a lager?
@dustin Yes, you're totally right about "Hangover Intensity" as subjective measure, but the study that Wired refers to gave participants vodka vs. bourbon vs. placebo randomly, so I don't see any reason to think that tolerances to discomfort would be different among the subject groups.

comment Does ale give less of a hangover than a lager?
Not a direct answer to ale vs. lager, but there certainly is evidence that different alcoholic beverage types have different hangover effects, although the effect size is probably small

comment What are the psychedelic effects of (stellar) anise and how many people are affected?
This is interesting, but terrifying. Have you considered the possibility that there may be Japanese Star Anise (Illicium anisatum) adulterating what your girlfriend thinks is edible star anise (Illicium verum)?
