Continuing in the tradition of geeky items none of us really need, the guys over at ThinkGeek have dug up another goodie – the titanium drinking straw. Yep – just what every one of us nerd-dorks needs – a straw made out of metal!

It’s made from sturdy, food-safe titanium, and because of its poor thermal conductivity, will let you sip hot or cold beverages without the straw being adversely affected by the temperature. While you may think that a titanium straw might only be a way to replace a bunch of cheap plastic straws, you should take pause to think of the possibilities. Can your plastic straw do this?…

You can grab yourself a titanium straw over at ThinkGeek for $15 (USD) a piece. Sure, you could buy nearly 1500 plastic straws for the same price, but you wouldn’t be nearly as cool… unless, of course you made something like this out of the 1500 straws:
