  1. Is it really a center seeking force? I think it's an outward force, also known as centrifugal force. The board may have centripetal force from the rope, but the mug is experiencing centrifugal force.

  2. If you are driving as a passenger on a bumpy road with a soda can (or any other open container) in your hand, grab it with two fingers by the top rim, and keep your grip loose enough to let it swivel, but hard enough to not let it slip out of your fingers. Can save you a deep cleaning after an unexpected break.
