England has a pint sized problem

“First Australia considers banning pool cues and now the British are redesigning their pint glasses to decrease bar injuries.

Almost 87,000 citizens of England and Wales (total population: 64 million) are hurt every year in “glass attacks.” Many of these people suffer horrific injuries because the glass shatters and flies everywhere, including into heads, limbs, and other body parts.

The Home Office recruited Design Bridge to help solve the problem. The firm came up with two ideas, one that involves coating the glass with a clear sheet and another that actually turns the pint into two separate glasses. They hope to have the first solution in pubs within the next 12 months.

Maybe instead of fixing the pint glass, the Home Office should focus on reducing the country’s massive anger issues.”
