    "The Art of Being Drunk" is study of drunken fusees. Normally the fusee arbor is rotated anti-clockwise to wind the mainspring, and the arbor cannot be turned clockwise without breaking something. Drunken fusees can be wound both anti-clockwise and clockwise.

    I explain different designs and conclude (if I am right!) that only 5 different designs are possible.

    This latest (and hopefully last) version reorganises the article and makes some important changes to the text.
