Kid Spends A Year Trying To Throw A Spoon In A Coffee Mug, Documents EVERYTHING [WATCH]

Spoon-Cup-Kid

They say if you want something bad enough, keep working towards it until you get it. Such was the case with this kid Niall Brady on Snapchat. Nearly a year ago, he started snapping himself attempting to toss a spoon into a coffee mug with his back turned.

It was nearly a year of failed attempts.

Finally, Brady finally nails the toss. As you can see, he’s more than excited. Check out the video for all of his near successes and many misses.

New Research Shows Why You Should NOT Drink from White Coffee Mugs

Your favorite mug is probably not white. I’m not saying you have a color bias, but some scientists are.

A study released in Flavour, a scientific journal, claims that coffee in white mugs is perceived as bitter and more intense than the same coffee in a transparent or blue mug.

Participants rated the coffee’s intensity, bitterness, aroma, quality and acceptability for each mug color. The results show that the coffee in blue mugs was interpreted to be sweeter (even scientists make typos) and the most acceptable to drink. Glass mugs were pretty inoffensive and unimpressive, while white mugs drew the strongest negative reactions for each category.

The researchers suspect the contrast between the color of the coffee and the mug affects the drinker’s perception of the beverage.

If you feel like stepping up your coffee game, switch up your mug usage. Cheap coffee in a blue mug can start feeling like a gourmet blend in a white mug.

Face Mug — For Lonely People & Donuts

Lazy morning people, rejoice! Because there aren’t enough coffee mug re-designs out there, let’s throw in one more. Introducing The Face Mug, the newest addition to beverage + snack carrying vessels.

This face-shaped mug holds your favorite hot beverage while conveniently carrying a delightful snack of your choice in its mouth. It’s geared towards the coffee and doughnut crowd; that’s not to say the cocoa and cookie, or tea and scone folks are left behind. Choose your drink, choose your treat — it’s that simple.

I don’t recommend staring directly into the face of the mug if it’s not occupied- it’s a little terrifying, unless you’re into that kind of thing. So if you’re looking for a bizarre conversation piece, or you’re lonely and need a friend, grab a Face Mug for less than 20 bucks.

Global Warming Mug, This Is How Bill Nye Probably Sips Coffee

Do you know any Global Warming cynics? If so, this might be the next holiday present you get them, a Global Warming Mug that has a disappearing coastline activated by pouring in a hot beverage. The cup stands as a statement for Global Warming, a problem that “threatens world ecosystems from the Arctic to the Everglades with rising sea levels and radical climate changes.”

The 10.1 ounce mug is 3.25″ in diameter, comes shipped in a gift box, and is the ultimate conversation starter when trying to pick up on that lady in the cubicle over.

“Hey girl, you up on game about how greenhouse gases collect like a blanket around our planet and keep us warm? That’s right, this is our planet….and one day this warmth will burn us to a crisp because that Styrofoam shit you’re sipping on might as well be a ticking time bomb. Oh, you don’t want to get dinner anymore?”
