Tempered glass crumbles into small pebbles when broken, rather than into the sharp shards of conventional glass. These pebbles are ineffectual as weaponry, except possibly as sand thrown in an opponents eyes.

       Alternatively, you could assume that anyone who stumbles and cuts himself on a glass is too drunk to keep drinking, and deserves whatever he gets.

       Drunken Fuckwits will swallow these pebbles and cost our NHS, and variations thereof, thousands.

       I've just emailed Bill Oddie to reassure him that drunken fuckwits are NOT an endangered species...

       <twee aussie accent> Crikey! We are stalking the not rare, but certainly odd American Drunken Fuckwit. We will be tagging and releasing them here on this beach is Southern Florida to study their social and mating habits. Hope you all have a strong stomach! </twee aussie accent>

       But tag-and-releasing drunken fuckwits is more the sort of thing that the late Steve Irwin would have done - I think that's Galbinus' reference.

       Wouldn't these occasionally shatter in the dishwasher and destroy the pump? So better to use the glass that Hollywood uses: candy glass, which is actually sugar. Breaking the mug and eating the shards would be so impressive that the other fellow would run away.

       When I were a barmaid in days gone by (in the UK), all the glasses *were* made of safety glass. The kind that breaks into little squares. That was ten years ago. Baked.

       I wonder if laminated glasses would be any good?
Ling, Apr 17 2007
  

       This is baked, I worked in a bar that had these and they were really hard to break too. Annoyingly, when they do go, like when you pour cold beer into a hot glass, they really go bang and shatter in your hand, making you look a right tit.

       Putting cold beer in a hot glass SHOULD make you look like a right tit.
Galbinus_Caeli, Apr 17 2007
  

       Not as much as putting hot beer in a cold glass...

       "Drunken fuckwits". I know for a fact that I'm MUCH cleverer after a cheeky wee bottle and a half of Chablis.   

       And more gorgeous and witty.   

       Ask my wife. Her code for this condition is, "God Almighty! When are you going to grow up, you narcissistic waster?"

       //they really go bang and shatter in your hand// I would so, so love this! I'd probably spend all evening with a lighter and ice cubes trying to get my glass to go bang.
