Alright, prepare for a real dumpster fire here, guys, but this odd new trend was too strange to ignore. What started out with a real scientific study that confirmed what was the ‘best’ way to hold a coffee mug ended up with some unholy alternative options for how to hold your beverages.
The actual study determined that holding the rim of a mug with a claw-like grasp from the top was the most secure way to transport a drink. The details went on to explain that this method keeps the mug’s center of gravity relatively stable. The study’s subjects were even instructed to walk backward during the “experiment” and found the same positive results. Now if you’re like most people you would likely ask why the Hell this lil experiment ever needed to be tested. I mean are there really people out there clamoring for answers on how to most effectively hold a glass in their hands?
