People Look Weird When They’re Drinking

I'm having a serious conversation with you. Looking you in the eye. Then suddenly, out of nowhere, you jerk your head back and display your teeth, as you yearn to get the last remaining drops of your drink.

I'm unhappy with the current design of drinking containers. At least with a glass, you only half to go a millimeter above horizontal, and gravity will empty the remains into your mouth.

But soda cans? Coffee cups? Anything with a lid creates this sort of catch-all that forces you to violently try and defy physics.

And no, I refuse to leave any of the beverage in the container. And no, I refuse to use a straw.

Solve my problem.
