The spaghetti effect can be seen both at the dinner table and in industrial settings. When a long flexible strand is rapidly pulled into a container, it can whip about wildly. With a spaghetti strand, the whipping can sling off the sauce. This is one of new stories for November at the Flying Circus of Physics site. Another of the stories is about how an open can of Red Bull can be inverted without any of the liquid pouring out. This is another of the pub tricks that are not only described but also explained at the web site.
