# Fridge Straw II

a really long, pump assisted fridge straw
 (0) [vote for, against]

A really long straw that you can insert into a drink in your fridge. As soon as you suck on your end, a really small pump helps you with the vacuum problem inherent in having a really long straw.

[Pashute]'s version is nice too.

but wouldnt you have half a gallon of milk in the straw before it gets to you? Then what do you do when you change drinks?

 Solution: a really really thin straw. To have the same volume as a normal straw (call it 1/4"): 100' straw * (d/2)^2 * pi = 1/2' straw * ((1/4")/2)^2 * pi 100 * (d/2)^2 = .5 * (1/8)^2 d = (((1/128) / 100)^.5) x 2 inches d = .0177" diameter

This would require quite a pump though.

It would look odd at a party with all those people standing around the fridge sucking, but if you go for this kind of stuff you could pressurize the fridge a little and keep the drinks in open containers inside. That way you need only one pump.
