What I noticed was the Panera straw was a smaller diameter than the
standard McDonalds straw, but not as small as coffee
stirrers. Might be the perfect size for drill pipe.
Drill pipe (actually tubing, as it is sized by outside diameter rather
than nominal inside diameter for pipe) was usually 2-7/8, 3-5/8, 4-5/8
inch diameter. Generally drill tubing has one end upset by approximatly
1/2 inch and is then tapped, while the other end is threaded. For
shipping the threaded end has a protective plastic cap on it.
