Behold, something that actually worked, well it did for me anyway.
lol, sounds like a lot of work. The hiccup probably doesn't stop because of the inhaling+swallowing but because you totally concentrate on something else than the hiccup....I guess ^^
For me it helps to just inhale until the lungs feel full an then hold my breath and count to 50. My hiccups mostly stop at around 30 to 40, probably because I'm focusing on counting, not on hiccing up

But I've heard a dozen different methods, like eating a tablespoon of peanut butter, or drinking a glass of water upside down.
