The Twix Straw

Post by Steve Smith » Fri Sep 12, 2014 3:37 pm

Time for some light hearted waveform analysis.

I was not sure where to place this post, so I have opted to go for “Best of the web”

Waveform analysis is a skill of its own and requires “thinking time”

I came across this phenomena whilst in Poland with a colleague at the “Intercars Show” and thought I must share.

You may or may not have heard of the “Twix Straw”? Well we have now

Whilst analysing waveforms and values over a hot drink, open a Twix, bite the ends off one Twix finger, dip into your drink and suck your drink through the Twix!

I have tried this over the last two days and have learned that it works best with a standard size Twix and one that has been in the fridge.

The “rate of melt” is directly proportional to temperature so enjoy

Take care…….Steve

Ha Ha :D

Steve is talking about the thinking process and our need for extra sugar/fuel in our brains as long as we want better results out of the thinking process. :mrgreen:

Kind regards

BTW that is the guy who plays the main role here?
