Chuck Norris Would Use a Titanium Straw, How 'Bout You?

Illustration for article titled Chuck Norris Would Use a Titanium Straw, How Bout You?

Are you man (or woman) enough to handle a titanium drinking straw? It takes some compromises. You can't bend it and you have to wash it after every use. But you would look very herculean sipping that frozen margarita.

Besides its metallic good looks, the titanium straw has some decided advantages over a plastic straw. It's non-conductive so its doesn't get too hot or too cold. It's strong enough to pierce an orange so you can drink the juice without firing up an expensive juicer. And those wimpy holes on juice boxes? Forget about it. Just slam your straw through the side of carton.

It's available from our favorite geek outlet ThinkGeek for $15. [ThinkGeek via Technabob]

Funny thing about titanium. Everyone thinks it some super tough metal. Truth is, it isn't.

The awesome thing about titanium is that it is as strong as steel and weighs considerably less.

You could make a steel straw of the same dimensions and it would be just as durable as this titanium one. The titanium one would just be lighter.
