Hangover Movie: Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle

Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle is a classic hangover movie that every college kid and stoner has seen. It is very much a remake on the very classic Cheech and Chong movies with its ridiculous antics, drug use, sex, and drinking.

Harold is the more introverted awkward character and Kumar is the more outgoing and spontaneous one setting this hangover movie up for some interesting situations. Harold and Kumar’s journey to find a White Castle because of the relocation of the old one; turns into an entire movie.

Harold and Kumar set out to get White Castle and in the process of trying to get some delicious hamburgers to satisfy their munchies, Harold gets bitten by an animal and ends up in the hospital. After getting out of the hospital Harold and Kumar continue their hunt for White Castle and then the car breaks down. After their car breaks down they meet a nice man named Randy who takes them with him to his house to fix their car. At Randy’s house, Randy offers to let Harold and Kumar sleep with his beautiful wife Liane. After this debacle, Harold and Kumar end up picking up a hitch-hiker, who when they stop at a gas station steals their car. So now Harold and Kumar are walking and end up jay walking. After jay walking they get stopped by a police officer who just likes to pick on minorities and ends up arresting Harold and holding him in a cell. Harold and Kumar escape and both run to hid in the bush and come face to face with a cheetah. And the antics go on and on.

Eventually Harold and Kumar find themselves at a raging party that they stop by for a minute and they also in the end make it to White Castle after being up all night losing their car, walking, hitting a party and going through everything they have to get it. While at White Castle the hitchhiker returns the car. And while Harold and Kumar are eating the White Castle it is an epic moment for them because what was supposed to be a quick trip to White Castle had turned into an all-night debacle of sex, drugs, music, and drinking. The classic hangover movie: Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.

Alcohol History

Alcohol History- The History Of Alcohol Use

By: Rhea R

March 2nd, 2012


The history of alcohol points to it being a product of a fermentation process. It is highly likely that it was discovered more by accident than through any rational thinking. It was probably the fermentation of stored grain, uneaten berries and grapes, or even the curdling of milk that led to this discovery, and the fact that consuming such fermented potions did have certain side effects. Mankind then applied its mind to deliberately creating such potions and these gained wide acceptance not only for religious rites but as part of the diet. The oldest known drink that is available even today is ale.

Early civilizations used alcohol as medicines and as treatment against bacteria and viruses. Many civilizations developed an expertise in producing alcohol depending on the natural products available in their areas for this purpose. This included some forms of grain, grapes and other fruits. This led to people discovering that alcohol was a salable commodity that they could sell to others or barter to them for other goods scarce in their own area. So alcohol became very much a part of early commerce and even today amphorae of wine are being discovered in sunken ships that carried these as part of trading activity. The making of alcohol became a specialized art practiced by a few for sale to others. It then became quite common for people to buy alcohol for their own consumption from such people and the serving of alcohol in taverns and bars became a practice that is prevalent even today.

The development of international commerce led to certain regions concentrating on alcohol and liquors that they alone could produce because of the natural products that grew in their area. So Scotland used peat and grain for its famous Scotch whiskey. Mexico used the agave plant to produce Tequila and Mescal. The tropics and their vast natural acreage of sugarcane led to rum being distilled, while the grape growing regions of France led to wine and brandy being their natural alcohol based products. All this was also helped by the advances in technology that allowed fermentation in special containers from which such alcohol was distilled so that the final product had no impurities.

The history of alcohol has to take into consideration that drinking it developed into a social habit that acts as a lubricant for connecting people even of diverse backgrounds. Alcohol is widely consumed at family gatherings, weddings, birthday parties and also as part of the wake of a dead person. Because of this habit, alcoholism slowly assumed the status of a social disease linked to its misuse. Social scientists and governmental authorities also tried to curb this ill by introducing prohibition and other laws. Even now the public sale and consumption of alcohol is controlled in most countries through licensing and other means. It has also given rise to rehab centers and the like to wean away addicts from the effects of alcoholism.

New Hangover Cures Flood the Market

New Hangover Cures Flood the Market

By Jenny Hunt

February 10, 2012

Have a little too much to drink last night? You aren’t alone. “How to cure a hangover” is one of the most Googled phrases of 2012. Recently, some smart product developers have stepped in and created products to meet that demand. Since this past New Years, the market has been flooded with products that are said to either cure or prevent a hangover.

1)      Bytox Hangover Prevention Remedy Patch: This product was developed by Alex Fleyshmakher after a night of hard partying and the subsequent hangover landed him in a doctor’s office. The Bytox patch is meant to be applied 45 minutes before you start drinking and worn for 8 hours after you stop. The patch contains several types of B vitamins, açaí berry, vitamins A, D, E and K, and folic and pantothenic acids. It is meant to replenish the vitamins and minerals that you lose while drinking.

2)      Blowfish Tablets: This product combines aspirin, caffeine and an antacid into an Alka-Seltzer-like effervescent tablet. A two-tablet dose of Blowfish (which is what the makers recommend for a typical hangover) contains 1,000 milligrams of aspirin and 120 milligrams of caffeine, which is equivalent of two extra strength aspirin and three shots of espresso. Blowfish was developed to fight the most common symptoms of a hangover: headache, fatigue, and upset stomach. Many hangover cure seekers wish to get these cures delivered to the office or other places where discretion is important. Responding to this demand, Blowfish Tablets are packaged in plain manila envelopes.

3)      B.cuz You Like to Party Vitamins: A new vitamin brand, b.cuz, plans to release these vitamins in February or March, just in time for spring break. The company’s founder says the vitamins will contain vitamins B and C, magnesium, and cysteine to replenish the vitamins lost during drinking.

4)      Mercy Soda: This product gained popularity when it was Gwyneth Paltrow told news reporters that she swears by it. Mercy soda is marketed as a hangover prevention product, not a hangover remedy. The best time to drink this hangover cure is while or shortly after drinking.  Makers of Mercy Soda even suggest that you mix it with your alcohol to make a cocktail. Mercy Soda is said to flush your system of acetaldehyde, the chemical that causes a hangover. It contains amino acids, antioxidants and vitamins

There have always been pills and powders on the market that claim to cure or prevent hangovers.  No matter which hangover cure you choose to try, it is likely that not much will help you if you drink a lot. Indeed most medical experts agree that time is the only surefire way to cure a hangover.  However, there are ways to make your hangover more comfortable. Hot baths, lots of water, over the counter painkillers, caffeine are just a few ways you can treat the uncomfortable symptoms of a hangove

Hangover Story: College Student Falls Asleep in The Wrong Dorm Room

After a long hard night of drinking Jason, a student of Florida State, was ready for bed. It seemed to be like any other normal night of drinking. Go out to the bar, get smashed and come back to the dorms to rest up before class on Monday. Little did he know is when he got on the elevator he pressed the button for the fourth floor instead of the second. This was the catalyst to an interesting morning that was mixed with a massive headache, fatigue and dehydration otherwise known as a killer hangover.

 As Jason, took the elevator to what he thought was the second floor of the dorms he held himself up wanting nothing more than his bed. Soon the elevator doors opened and being as drunk as he was he didn’t even notice that not only was he not on the second floor but he was on the girl’s floor. “I thought it looked a little unfamiliar” Jason said “but I was so drunk I barely thought about it” He stumbled and staggered his way to the room he thought was his, opened the door and slowly climbed into bed. “The spins were seriously bad” Jason said, so he grabbed the trashcan and puked for a good five minutes into it and then “I just passed out.” Jason reports.

Next thing he knew he was being awoken by three very angry girls who were holding what looked to be like a backpack full of books covered in puke. They were yelling and it didn’t do much to help his headache. Reports say that the girls were “Screeching so loud you could hear them down the hall”. “It suddenly dawned on me”, says Jason. “I definitely wasn’t in my own dorm room and what I had thought was the trashcan was one of the girl’s backpacks.” With that Jason said he quickly grabbed his keys and ran out the door, hoping no one would know about the awful mistake he had made. As he made it back to his own dorm room he stopped by the bathroom only to catch his reflection in the mirror. “I had obviously been passed out longer than I thought, the girls had drawn all over my face and then I remembered I had fallen asleep with my shoes on!” Jason said while shaking his head.

Jason finally made it to his own bed where he then slept for another 12 hours until the hangover wore off. “I missed my Monday classes.” “It totally wasn’t worth it” Jason says. With that Jason did have this to say though, “If you are going to drink make sure you are somewhat coherent. You never know what it’s going to be like waking up after a long hard night of drinking. Seriously. I didn’t have to deal with just a hangover but also the back lash of an embarrassing night for the next three months, I think the girls even got some pictures”

Moral of this story: If you are planning on getting hammered make sure you know where you are or have someone with you. Also drink plenty of water and eat something!  This would have kept Jason somewhat coherent. This would have also helped with Jason’s headache, dehydration and vomiting. Sometimes hangovers are inevitable but they can be eased up a little. The best advice though is still to just not drink.

Hangover Story: Plumber Falls Asleep On Customers Kitchen Floor

It started out as fun night at the bar watching the football game. Then it turned into a couple pints of beer and few shots of tequila. Forgetting that he had work in the morning our plumber continued to drink and drink. Not eating, drinking no water, and diminishing his body of B-vitamins the plumber staggered his way home to hit the hay.

What he came to find the next morning was his body and mind in less than perfect shape. His head was throbbing, he was so tired, and his throat was dry. He felt like he was going to puke along with all the other hangover symptoms. It was then that he got the call saying he had to go and fix an older woman’s pipes in her kitchen.

He began working on her pipes, lying on the ground his head under the sink. The next thing he knew he felt something kicking his feet that were sticking out from under the sink. “Are you okay?” the woman asked. “Sure” the plumber said. “Ill be done here in a second.” The woman replied, “I was just wondering because you were snoring under there.”

The plumber didn’t lose his job but he was pretty miserable while doing it and pretty severely embarrassed at the fact that he had fallen asleep on this woman’s kitchen floor. “I should have called in to work sick” the plumber said.

Moral of this story: Don’t drink before you have to be at work or if you do call out sick from work. You can’t speed up the recovery of a hangover even if you can help remedy it. IT takes however long the body takes to heal from hangover and you really should give the body time. That or if you know you’re going to have a hangover take B-vitamins for energy and drink plenty of water.

Hangover Story: Passing out in her car and ruining it for good

After a long night of drinking Sarah was ready to go home. Her story is the perfect example of what not to do after drinking a copious amount of alcohol. Sarah stumbling drunk got into her car to drive. This is our first absolute no, no.  Not only could she have ended up killing herself but she could have ended up killing someone else on the road. Regardless, our drunken woman Sarah got in her car and made the short drive from the bar to her apartment complex.

Once she got to her apartment complex and parked her car she opened her car door to get out. The next thing Sarah knew was she was opening her eyes to the sun shining, birds chirping and people going to work. She looked around and realized she had passed out before she could even step out of her car. Not only that but she had thrown up all over the floorboard of her car. When she tried to turn her car on the battery was dead from leaving her car door propped open all night. Sarah didn’t even remember how she got home the night before much less not making into her apartment or even throwing up in her car.

The car ended up smelling like vomit for the next six weeks. She didn’t make it to work the next day due to her hangover and could of gotten arrested, killed or killed someone else driving drunk.

The Moral of this story: Don’t drink. Definitely don’t drink and drive-I mean really? C’mon now. If you are going to drink have a designated driver or call a cab. Drink plenty of water before you go to bed if you can make it to your bed and get plenty of rest.
