I'm Pretty Sure That Straw Is Beyond Crazy: Father Builds 165-Foot Long Crazy Straw For Daughter's Birthday

August 5, 2015


These are a bunch of shots of the 50-meter (~165-foot) crazy straw a father built for his daughter's birthday. It starts on an upstairs deck in a bottle of fruit juice and travels all the way down to the garden lounge below. Do you think you could actually suck through 165 feet of straw? SPOILER: No. As you may recall from this Mister Wizard episode (also embedded after the jump), Mr. Wizard's boy assistant was only able to suck about 4.5-meters (~15-feet), and a vacuum pump only sucked 8.75-meters (~29-feet). Granted that was straight up, but still. They were also using a solid one-piece straw and this one has about a million different connections for air to leak in. That said, it is still the most beautiful thing I've seen all day and made me very happy and I just tried to make a crazy straw from the chocolate milk carton in my fridge all the way to my bed but my cat realized what was going on and now the whole hallway is sticky and I have ants.

Keep going for a bunch more shots.







Thanks to Marie, who agrees the best straws are bubble tea straws because you can drink so much faster. Right? I can finish a can of root beer in one big sip.
