It seems impossible that sphagetti could be sucked because it is so limp, if you push on the end of a piece of sphagetti it does nothing. How can a vacuum in my mouth cause air pressure to force the sphagetti into my mouth? Or is that how it works at all? [note added by MadSci Admin: A previous answer, http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/jun99/930573830.Bp.r.html, says that the air pressure pushes the spaghetti, but that is exactly what the new questioner is puzzled about. How can air pressure push a limp spaghetti?]
