Why do they make beer bottles that shatter into tiny shards when you drop them? I spent most of Monday afternoon picking up bits of broken glass from the ground at the Vale Castle after the Vale Earth Fair on sunday, so that children don’t go getting glass stuck in their feet.

We have the technology to make glass that doesn’t shatter into shards (car windows, for example), so why can’t we make bottles like that?

Its seem pretty obvious that you drink beer, you get drunk, you try and drink more, but you drop the bottle cos you’re drunk!!! I’m sure it would save a lot of trouble at A+E if bottles were shatter proof.

Maybe I’m thinking too logically.
