Burning Question #19: Drinking Holes

This week’s burning question is from the smart and beautiful Jessica, a young Vampire who jets sets between Las Vegas and New York. Thanks Jessica!

Straws have been in the news lately. I’m talking drinking straws here. Some countries are banning plastic straws. I remember when straws were all paper. At home we have reusable stainless steel straws. I have to say I love the stainless ones. Just like we got used to resuable grocery bags, we’ll get used to new and creative straw options.

But what about the physical and philosophical questions and mysteries that surround straws? OK I don’t care either but still, think about it. This is a fun one.

Burning Question #19: Does a straw have one hole or two?

 

So what do you think?

See you next week for Burning Question #20.

Keep cool, and don’t make annoying sounds when you drink stuff.

  1. My reasoning is that a ring has one hole. What is a straw other than a ring with really long sides? So I voted one.

  2. This is easy. Remember when you were a kid and thought about digging a hole to China? You’d really end up in the middle of the Indian Ocean, but that’s irrelevant. Anyway… think of your hole to China as one very long straw. And take note that it’s referred to as a “hole” and not “holes.” A hole to China has only one hole, just as a straw has only one hole. And that is coming straight from your favorite a-hole…

    • Yes I do remember. It was a shock to end up in the middle of an ocean. The hole to China is an excellent way to explain it all. Thank you. This is no longer a Burning Question.
