My friend and I were wondering from how high an actual person can do it. The answer is, this high:
I’m hereby declaring Matt Kiesz, age 23, the new world record holder at the Superman Suck, with a height of 3.07m set on May 16, 2009 in Pasadena, CA. Challenges to this record will be both welcome and futile.
The straw was constructed from some tape and a bunch of shorter straws. We didn’t have any obvious problems with air gaps or collapsing straws, although there were a few bubbles in the tube.
