There is much in what you say, but I think this world is designed by scrawny rice-cake-chompin' people with ethnic backgrounds that are associated with shortness and smallness. I am 6'2" and descended from German farmers, and they do NOT build this world for people my size. Heck, I have trouble getting in and out of Japanese mid-size cars!
I can only imagine what people who are REALLY big and tall, like NBA and NFL players, have to deal with: cars, clothes, etc etc etc. It's just the man keeping us down, I s'pose.
