Suck it up

I was looking around in some boxes in my basement when I found this awesome Build A Straw kit I bought long ago at the dollar store.  It was another cheap thing to be featured in a blog post, but then it got put away and I forgot about it.  Luckily I found it because it was either a blog post about this or how my jeans ripped the other day.

I've never seen a straw with that many pieces.  The fanciest straw I ever had was bendy at the top.

So many pieces, I don't even know where to start!  The possibilities are endless...

Can I make something as cool as this kid?  I mean, he's drinking from three different cups!  Wow!  I wonder if I can make a straw that will let me drink from four cups!

After a lot of differents attempts and failures, this is my final straw design.  It has clean simple lines and as they say, "less is more".

Yours is way cooler than the kid's because of refraction. Duh.
