I may need a new water glass - RonO's Ramblings
After several spill incidents we went to 1-liter polycarbonate Camelbak "Better Bottles". Not quite as large (loks like 34-oz), but one of mine has survived at least two drops from vehicles onto blacktop with only minor scuffing. Plus being almost spill-proof. Ron and I have two each - one at home, one at work.
I'll have to think about this kind of solution. robot_grrl
suggested I could get a second SIGG bottle as well.
Having a container that can be closed isn't of great importance for this application, however, since my glass rarely leaves the break room or coffee station still full.

I don't know how many oz, but I still use the big plastic cups they sell at Brookfield zoo, you might check at the local zoo to see if they ahve something similiar.
I might give that a try. <sarcasam>We do have a local zoo of some renown around here after all.</sarcasam>
When S had this issue, I found a replacement he likes: The Bubba Keg. It's available at Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Bubba-Keg-Travel-Mug-Black/dp/B000WMAPMO
I went for the 32 oz size, but they also make a 52 oz size. For reference, ice put in the cup at dinner will still be ice the next morning. It takes about 36 hours for it to melt, if the lid is on. Hot beverages have never survived long enough to get cold.
Does Steak'n'Shake still peddle carryout shakes in sturdy plastic cups?
Good idea. But, alas, the nearest locations are a bit out of the way -- probably in Fort Worth if I'm remembering my Metroplex geography correctly.

May or may not be useful - here in Minneapolis, SuperAmerica gas stations have a 44 oz. styrofoam cup. It's meant for Slurpies (or whatever SA calls that beverage) - maybe you could find them there?
