Stefan Psarakos  asked the Naked Scientists:

Hi Dr. Chris,

I used a plastic McDonald's straw to impale a raw potato by holding my thumb or finger over the top of the straw. My depth of penetration results are as follow:

Attempt 1: 4 cm
Attempt 2: 5.4 cm
Attempt 3: 5.9 cm
Attempt 4: 6 cm
Attempt 5: 6.5 cm

Straws are quite cumbersome.

Kindest regards and thanks to the TNS team for the great work!

Stefan

What do you think?
