World’s Longest Vertical Straw

“What is the longest drinking straw that you can actually drink out of? Well in this video, we put the theory to the test. We started off with a 3ft long straw made out of drinking straws taped together. We moved on to two pieces of plastic tubing, each 19ft in length with different diameters. Then we tried a 32ft tube over a cliff’s edge. The maximum we achieved was about 22ft though theoretically up to 32ft is possible if a perfect vacuum is created.” — 1veritasium
