Forget broken glasses the real problem is people spilling beer. I think we should all be drinking from sippy cups to protect from the real crime that is spilling glorious beer!

You really think they're going to get a choice? This glass is being introduced by the government claiming it's a way to reduce health care costs. I'd be shocked if it didn't become mandatory.

Who cares. Would you complain if you had a British made bitter in a Solo Cup? Not me, thanks to college and the Beast.

This made me laugh, nice.

What about making glasses out of better bottle material? PERT?

Good thing they don't sell beer in bottles over there.

Probably right.
This does not bode well for us if the government actually passes the health care thing here. I had not thought of such wide reaching ramifications of a system run by the man.

Pure awesome. Somebody should have told Obama that our health care issues could be solved just as easily. Actually strike that, he might want to add pint glasses to the list when he reinstates the assault weapon ban.
Somehow that logic doesn't translate well to the aluminum baseball bat...

Trust me, nobody in their right mind would "sneak in" a glass to a pub with the intention of using it as a weapon. Do you ever choose your glassware based on their potential as a weapon?

Not to mention, if you live in America you shouldn't be worried about glass fights, because we have gun fights. I'd be much more worried about the newest NFL star player sneaking a gun in and shooting you then some crazy soccer fan hitting you in the face with a pint glass.


In regards to the article, as long as that strengthening compound lining the inside of the glass doesn't alter the flavor of the beer, why not? It seems to me like nobody will know the difference between the glasses until a fight breaks out.

How did they come to the conclusion that the glasses were the issue?

People are getting into fights and using the nearest thing as a weapon. If its not the glass, then they will be breaking chairs over their heads. What is next, are they going to mandate Nerf chairs to protect people?
