Re: Three-leg bar stool
Response To:
Three-leg bar stool ()

In the rear, since that would give you a place to put a stretcher in the front, that you could hook your heels on. (Wrong answer)

In the front, since that would make the stool more stable. If it were to tip over frontwards and to the side, you could put a foot down to keep yourself from toppling. If the single leg were in the back, and you started to topple, you would go over backwards with no way to stop yourself from hitting your head on the bar, wall or floor. This also provides a design opportunity for a perch for your heels attached to only one leg. (Right answer)
