Why do companies manufacture cups with falling center of gravities? It doesn't even make sense.

I think they presume that you're putting something in the cups. Although maybe you're just using them... creatively.

They don't have to be triangles perse, just have he entire area of the top fall within the entire of the base. It looks more like a trapezoid or upside-down cone with the top sliced off and hollowed out. If storage is the only issue I'm sure that there exists a solution that allows for easy storage and space-saving capabilities. I'm just freaking tired of lightly tapping my drink and having it FALL OVER.

unless the table was designed to accommodate the cups and has holes you can rest them in.

Cups shaped like cones are the antithesis of the notion that I wish cups were. They are the epitome of a shape with a falling center of gravity, and making a table to accomodate them is just wanting it way too badly.

Given that I only got a drink every couple of hours, I downed the entire thing. There was no "setting down".

Except upside-down, aka an upside-down cone with the top sliced off. I'm pretty sure that Cody was referring to the cuos that are dispensed by the office water-cooler that are literally cones.

I had a thought and I'm bored waiting for DP3 to start. I don't have much to occupy my time with. Currently I'm watching Angel season 2 while surfing on my iPod.

The thought came when I grabbed a cup off of the shelf to pour myself a glass of A&W Cream Soda.

You must be unfamiliar with the center of gravity concept. Cups are manufactured in a way that makes them tip easy.

Paper cups would never be made that way, since they can't stack and it'd take more material. As for every other cup, it's just hard to wash. Sheesh, you know there are scientific beakers that are shaped just the way you want cups to be, right? Just buy a couple of those :D

I would disagree, "easy" is a subjective word, so it really isn't useful for describing things.

They need to have a bigger opening at the top so you can put it to you face and drink out of it without having to bed over backwards. Being careful to not tip them over (which isn't really that hard, I mean come on) is not a big issue compared to chronic back and neck pains.

You think there is need for a bigger opening on the top of paper cups? What the f*ck are you, a horse?

Not bigger then there is already, I talking about why the top cannot be small then the bottom (which is what would need to take place to make them more balanced).

The back/neck problem could be solved with a cup shaped like this:

Except vertically oriented with a slightly larger base than rim.

I enjoy pointless, spontaneous, and odd discussions.

There is something wrong with you if you have a back/neck problem because of the process in which you drink out of cups.

....You mean an hour glass shape..?

Noice, 10/10. Hourglass would have been a much better way to describe the shape.

And no, I don't personally have a problem tipping my head back when I drink. I was merely suggesting a solution to the issue that OreEle introduced.

Rezz sort of mentioned this, but you can't easily make a paper or Styrofoam of that.

In addition, you can't stack them, which would make them hard to package. I mean, just think of all the space you would need just to place cups for people to drink out of at a party.

True, it would be more trouble than it's worth to make disposable cups that way. Just impractical I agree. I don't really use disposable cups that often though. I mostly use the kind of cups that you need to wash every once in a while. I don't even know why I made this thread-- oh yea, I was bored and got some Cream Soda. Whatever.
