Water you thinking?!

A life-saving system that delivers clean drinking water just about anywhere ...? That's great, but I still have to separate my Skittles by hand.

Now that the LifeStraw folks have successfully eliminated the challenge of finding clean water in even the most dire situations, we’re wondering if they could possibly tackle these other highly necessary inventions:

GorpStraw: A straw that effectively removes 99 percent of healthy fruit and nuts from trail mix.

CookieStraw: Delivers only the sugary white goo from Oreos.

MeetingStraw: A straw that filters chitchat and frivolous dawdling from meetings.

LoafStraw: Pierce through the hardest of sourdough crusts and enjoy the soft, wholesome inside.

CrabStraw: No more bibs!

PuddingStraw: Because pudding is better through a straw.

CoupleStraw: Sucks through all the terrible minutiae of coupledom and unearths the good bits. (MAY CONTAIN VACATIONS AND MEALS.)
