Not to mention, how often do adult males use straws?

me...never
my kids seem to think it's essential

back in my college days, I remember some hippie said to me
'straws last longer than bones'
and it kinda stuck with me to not get a piece of plastic with every drink that will be around for 1000 years

seasons of Fort Reno.
fun fact...I'm about 1.5 miles from Ft Reno at my new job...so I'll be sure to catch some of these shows this year

The men using straws question reminds me of a story that my uncle (mom's brother) once told me about my dad.

My dad was about eight years older than my uncle, likely making my uncle about 15 (?) at time of said story. My uncle was apparently drinking something with a straw and my dad made a comment that "only queers use straws."

So to answer vansmack's question...never for straight men, sometimes for gay men.

TIL
Fort Reno's iconic tower concealed a secret radar dish

https://architectofthecapital.org/posts/2016/10/fort-reno-cold-war
When it was completed this unassuming brick tower concealed a radar dish that linked Washington via microwave relay with the Midatlantic “federal relocation arc”. In the event of a missile exchange, the tower -codenamed Cartwheel- would function as the central spoke connecting whatever remained of the continuity of government system.
