Coffee is an important
engineering subject, so I tought you might like
knowing about this tidbit I read in Scientific
Amercan about how to aviod siplling your coffee
while wlaking from the break room to your
cubicle or to a meeting.
The writer, Rod
Roduin, notes that the secret can be found by
observing waiters in restaurants. They manage to
carry multiple drinks, filled nearly to the top
of the cups and/or glasses, without spilling a
drop while walking quickly around the dining
area. Their secret:
Long stride, short
stride. Long stride, short stride.
Break up any rhythm that could set up a
resonance in the vessles, and the sloshing is
I'll have to remember that.
