吸管是如何发明的 | 视觉瞬间#12

How the bendy straw was invented | Moments of Vision 12 - Jessica Oreck

灵光一现
In a Moment of Vision…
20世纪30年代 旧金山
It’s the 1930s, San Francisco.
约瑟夫·弗莱德曼和他的小女儿朱迪思
Joseph B. Friedman and his young daughter Judith
正坐在一家汽水店大厅的柜台旁
are sitting at the counter in a soda parlor.
朱迪思刚点了一份奶昔
Judith has just ordered a milkshake.
香草味还是草莓味我们不得而知
Vanilla or strawberry, we may never know.
当奶昔上来后 约瑟夫看着小朱迪思挣扎着
When the milkshake arrives, Joseph watches as little Judith struggles.
坐上了店里的高脚凳
Seated on the parlor stool,
但却够不到从奶昔中伸出的
she is unable to reach the mouth of the striped paper straw
条纹纸吸管
protruding from her shake.
约瑟夫灵光一现 改良了朱迪思的吸管
Joseph, in a moment of vision, modifies Judith’s straw.
他用一个螺钉插进吸管一端
He inserts a screw into one end,
再用一根牙线
and using a piece of dental floss,
顺着螺钉的螺纹缠绕起来
crushes the paper between the threads of the screw
在吸管上留下一圈圈细小的等距皱痕
creating a series of tiny equidistant corrugations.
再把螺钉撤去
After removing the screw,
此时吸管就可以弯曲到杯子的边缘
the straw is able to bend over the side of the glass
朱迪思也就可以大快朵颐她的奶昔了
and Judith is able to savor her milkshake.
约瑟夫起初向医院推广这种新型柔性吸管
Joseph initially markets the new flexible straw
以帮助病人在坐卧时喝水
to hospitals to help patients drink while reclining,
但最后 在他妹妹贝蒂的营销和商业头脑佐助下
but eventually, with the marketing and business savvy from his sister Betty,
这种弯曲吸管不仅成为了每个孩子挚爱的小器具
the bendy straw becomes a beloved utensil of every child
也成为了一种家庭常备物品
and a regular household item.
