    U.K. to redesign streets for drunks

    Scientists have decided that redesigning streets to make them more user-friendly for drunks could help reduce conflict and violence.

    After using computer simulations based on the Welsh to mimic the movements of people staggering home after a good night out, researchers came to the staggering realisation that drunk people trip over things.

    Nothing says forward thinking culture more than designing for the lowest common denominator.

    I'm guessing the people studying this stuff don't drink themselves



    That seems like a complete waste of good research money...

    Obligatory Hawkeye Comment: This can only be good news for KF. If these designs were used in Iowa City, it could lower the off-field issues by nearly 25%!
