I hate Vienna! I hate Europe and it's culture of dwarfs!
I almost can see and hear the tiny dwarf foreman with his measuring tape, going "Aw, it's high enough for the likes of us to pass - quitting time!" to his jockey-sized workers.
The vicious thing is, most street-signs are in fact high enough for me to pass beneath them. But over the years I have hurt my head on more than just one - without a construction site adding height to the sidewalk.
I have cried out from pain on open streets and asked myself, do people of 194,5cm (AGYTCI - ask google yourself to convert it) have no right of walking the streets of Vienna without being physically harmed by streetsigns overhead?!
But the beastliness of adding 2-4 inches under a sign, so 6ft4"ers who were used to passing unharmed would scratch their skull!
I curse you, generations of european mites, line of tiny ancestors!
