Ever wonder what the theoretical limit is for drinking from a straw? If so, engineer James J. Orgill of the Action Lab attempts to find out in his latest experiment. Put simply, he tried drinking from his custom-built 34 ft straw and getting any kind of liquid through such a long tube can get tiring to say the least. So, an air compressor was brought in for the job. Read more to see what happened next.
On a related note, did you know that the modern drinking straw was patented by Marvin C. Stone back in 1888? That’s right, it was made of paper and improved upon the rye grass straw. The idea came about one day when Stone was drinking a mint julep on a hot summer day in Washington D.C. and discovered that the taste of rye was giving his drink an unpleasant grassy taste. So, he wound paper around a pencil to make a thin tube, slide the writing utensil out and then applied glue between the strips.
