Bare feet footprints in the snow going all the way from a club back to uni halls. About 2 miles.

The Germans out with us thought it was hillarious and now think all us Brits are idiots http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Because you drink sensibly?

Why? Can't drinking and rioting go together?

No, we simply don't have snow here http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

The poor, dumb fool who walked that far in snow whilst barefoot is very likely to end up with a double amputation from frostbite. Doing something as masochistic as that reeks of the Russian, God bless 'em.

It still lacks a trail of melting yellowish snow running between the steps.

If it's a barefooted person then I can almost certainly say that it was a girl, and not a guy walking in that state. British girls often walk home from clubs barefooted as the stupid shoes they wear whilst at a club hurt their feet so much that walking in the snow was probably bliss for them!! You'd be surprised how many drunken lassies I have seen walking through the streets of Glasgow after a night out with nothing on their feet. I've always marvelled at it!!

Man you guys see a bit of snow and go nuts. You want snow? I have tons of the stuff outside my window and it can't go away quicker.

What evidence was there to say it was 'British' footprints? Don't think it would stand up in court, perhaps it was a German, I understand they got a lot of experience of walking in bare feet when the were in Russia, some years ago... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif But then again it could have been a Frenchy... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

i suspect the odds are that it was a women, you'd have to look at the size of the footprints to get a better idea.

a women not wanting to ruin her shoes by walking in the snow is a likely reason, or simply having taken off their "clubbing shoes" because they are to uncomfortable to walk in.

Your correct, we had an anthropologist with us who decided the creator of the footprints was a very tall female.
