TALL DISCRIMINATION

About 2800 people in the world are 7 feet tall or taller. Considering that the world population is approximately 7.4 billion people, this means that the percentage of 7 footers is 0.000038%. So what? The height of common doors is 6 feet 8 inches. The standard height of the rough opening for a door is the door height plus 2 5/8 inches. The additional room allows for a 3/4-inch top jamb, a shim space above the door jamb and the thickness of underlayment and finish flooring. Tall people are being discriminated against based on their height. Congress needs to act now. Retrofit every door in America to accommodate tall people. If there are 90 million homes in America, and the average home has 12 doorways, and the cost of raising the door height is $875 per doorway, it will take approximately $945 billion dollars. Add another $365 billion to fix the 27.9 million businesses, and another $345 billion to fix government facilities. In all to be compliant with political correctness it will cost $1,655,000,000,000 dollars… Just tax the rich they can afford it… And as far as small people go, it’s their fault and should be held liable too!
