Singapore has the fastest walkers

British researchers have measured the speed of walking in the world's capitals. People in Singapore need 10.6 seconds for the 60 feet. London comes out at 12, whereas Berlin is seventh. This is suprising since London strikes me as much more hectic than Berlin, but then maybe Berliners have longer legs and are thus faster, or Londoners are constantly drunk and hence a bit slow.
