This ramble is sparked off by several things: these articles in the Times and the Daily Mail about lift shoes and a male friend of mine who wears boots with about an inch heel. I suppose this is one of those cases of 'if it makes someone happy, well let them be happy' but honestly, I think it's making a fuss over nothing.

- Be taller, be more handsome.
- Tall people even earn more! (according to the Wall Street Journal)
- Well proven, thousands of customers worldwide. "
