There is a restaurant in Philly called The Charthouse. I was in there once to wait while Jen filled out an application for a job. Of all the places that I have sat and waited while Jen filled out an application this is the one that sticks out in my mind. Why? Because of the barstools. I never understood barstools. It strikes me as idiotic to balance someone on a tall, rickety chair and watch as they try to maintain their balance as they get steadily more drunk. Maybe it is one of those things that appeals to those who are observing but refraining from drinking, I don’t know. What I do know is that my fear of falling is one of the reasons I tend to avoid drinking in bars. The Charthouse seems to agree with my humble opinion on the stupidity of barstools. Their bar has nice, short chairs that one could fall out of and not require hospitalization. Cheers to The Charthouse and all other establishments that realize that a drunk can make an ass of himself without any aide from the furniture.

I'd imagine that the function of a barstool is to help pack as many people in close proximity as possible at the bar, while allowing people to stand among them and lean on the bar (hence the height of the stools/bar) and be "social" while they get shitfaced.

well, yeah, but at least if you did fall you'd probably be at least partially numb at the time.

you never fall down, though. you always know when it's time to go sit down. in the bathroom. after some tequila. and long island iced teas. and most of my red death in 4.6 seconds. at the point where all you can say is "pretty".

It is due to a massive fear of falling down that I have aquired the rare skill to not fall down. Bar stools just make my job harder.
