If there’s one filmmaker whose worldview always evokes intensity, mad humor, indelible imagery and downright hallucinatory experiences, it’s British auteur Stanley Kubrick.
Typically polarizing, often ground-breaking and always memorable, every film he made during his remarkable, not-so-prolific career has seldom been matched.
Except when it comes to pairing ‘em with a good drink.
If you are like most people, the first thing you’ll do when attending a Memorial Day party is head to the cooler and pick out a random beer that you have never even heard of before, yet cherish because it’s free. Even if you don’t like beer, you acknowledge that day drinking on Memorial Day is better with a few brewskis in hand — after all, nobody sits around sipping on cosmos while hot dogs are burning on the grill.
However, even if you consider yourself to be a heavy drinker, you might not have mastered the art of day drinking.
Before you let loose, here are some things you should expect if you plan on hitting the early train to inebriation central.

Sales of a childrens' diarrhoea medicine are up in the USA, after it has been touted as a surprisingly effective hangover cure.
The medicine, Pedialyte, has seen fairly steady sales over the years. However, according to marketing research company Nielsen, adult use of the medicine has gone up by 57 per cent since 2012.
Pedialyte is made for children, and is designed to replenish vital minerals and fluids lost after a bout of diarrhea.
Bur recently, savvy adults have seen the potential of an easy method to take in plenty of fluids and nutrients in a short time, and are using it the morning after drinking to perk themselves up.

Over the course of 13 years, the researchers studied about 20,000 women and found that those who drank half a bottle of wine a day (the equivalent of two glasses) were less likely to become obese than the women who didn’t.
Need more proof? 47-year-old Linda Monk didn’t believe the results either, so she decided to try conducting her own little study.
After drinking a glass of wine every night for three weeks, Monk says she’s lost more than 6 lbs., and her sugar cravings have practically vanished.
