You’ve Been Pouring Juice Wrong Your Entire Life — Life in the Kitchen

When pouring orange juice from the carton, most people intuitively put the plastic spout as close to the glass as possible. This results in the infamous glugging approach, where your juice splatters within the glass and makes a "glug glug" noise. Not cool.
