"It took the researchers more than seven years to study the mechanics of what makes liquids leak."
And much fun was had by all.
A team of researchers has ventured deep into the physics of spilling to uncover why pints of beer splash everywhere but liquid in straws do not when positioned horizontally. The relationship between the possibility of spillage and a tube was thought to be based on the size of the tube’s opening. A paper published on the …
But they've only been researching how liquid will run out of a vessel when it is on its side, not how easy it is to tip one over when full?
Next seven years spent determining the ease with which a full pint can be knocked out of
1/. tall, thin glass
2/. conical glass
3/. bulging glass
6/. dimpled pint jug
7/. stemmed, fluted, 'call that a pint?!?' glass
(mine's the one with the dimpled pint in the pocket)
You missed out 8/. milk bottle
I only ever drink my pints out of a milk bottle. I have one stashed behind the bar of my local*. Even when the pub bully deliberately bangs into the table, mine's the safest pint in the establishment.
*(spoiler alert: I have of course made that up)
