    Haha, "San Crapcisco" - never heard that one.

    But take it from someone who has lived in the SF bay area for the past 13 years, you don't want to come here. Whether it be to visit or live. Just stay away. Trust me.

    You can't win with these people. If you replace plastic straws with paper ones, the tree huggers will complain. Unless there is an obvious problem that we can control, best to ignore the knuckleheads.

    Just to get this to audio for a minute -- :) there's a time honored trick used to tune bass reflex ports using bunches of -- you guessed it -- straws. A fistful of straws, cut to (various) lengths can be used as a quick and dirty way to test alternative tunings
    for a Helmholz resonator (ahem, bass reflex cabinet) :)

    Srsly.

    https://www.whathifi.com/forum/hi-fi/straws-in-bass-port

    there may be other reasons to do it, too.

    https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/straws-in-ports

    and, of course, Jon Risch says there're better ways to approach these issues than straws -- but, then again, he would ;)

    And of all that the U.S. is responsible for, less than .5 percent comes from straws.
