For guys out there, don't drink from a straw. Don't do it. It will not end well. If you are on a date, it will not help you out. If you are in a heated debate, you lose some ground. If you say something really manly like "I ripped a door off its hinges to save my family", it will be completely destroyed by the straw sipping face. Just take the straw out and drink from the glass. There is nothing dirtier about a glass than the damn silverware you will use to eat the meal. I will pass this information down to future nephews, sons, etc. You have been warned.
