"A Quick Pint" is Dangerous in Britain!

Who knew? Regard these horrifying statistics...

There are 87,000 alcohol-related "glass attacks" (the instigator picks up his heavy, handled beer much and lays about himself.)

50% of all violent assaults are alcohol related.

You are five times more likely to be involved in a violent incident in or near a licensed pub.

"Glassing attacks" cost the National Health service (NHS) about $4.3 BILLION A YEAR.

Now these statistics may change. A new non-shatter beer mug is being introduced for use by a major pub chain, name not disclosed.

Glass A has a thin bio-resin coating on the inside of the glass.
Glass B is made like a windshield - glass, plastic, glass.

"Why not plastic go-cups?" you ask in some confusion. A bar patron was quoted as saying "(Glass) feels good in the hands; it feels cold. Plastic is warm." Dude! You drink your beer WARM! "Rule Britannia" my arse.
