    Why on earth do they make them that height in the first place?
    Too short to use comfortably unless seated on a short stool and way too high to place on a bench unless standing on a step ladder.
    Not too hard to understand, avg height of Chinese man is 5'7", Vietnam 5'5". So where do you draw the how high line? Also side U channels are just under 5 feet, making four out of a 20 footer. Probably has more to do with that than anything else, no waste of steel.

      They probably have definitions of all kinds of racist epithets. "Chicom" is about as politically acceptable as "gook".

        Are you deranged? You should really think about these things, do a little research before you start calling people you don't know racists. Chicom, as the dictionary says is short for Chinese Communist. Gook is like the N word. FYI I have been to China four times, I have a Chinese Godchild from one of my many friends in China, I fly a Chinese Communist aircraft that I specifically went to China to purchase. Ended up importing them and supporting them. I have nothing but the highest respect for the Chinese people and their struggle for independence and a decent life. You couldn't be more wrong.

        Same dictionary:
        gook

        noun (1)

        \ ˈgük \ Definition of gook


        (Entry 1 of 2)

        offensive
        —used as an insulting and contemptuous term for a nonwhite, non-American person and especially for an Asian person
