Bored Panda has compiled a list of photos of tall people trying to perform ordinary tasks, travel, and just get through the day in a world that was not designed to accommodate their height.

According to one estimate, someone who is 20% taller will build up twice as much kinetic energy during a fall. This is why taller people are much more likely to suffer from injuries across their lifetime; women taller than 5ft 8in are twice as likely to fracture their hip as women who are just 5ft 2in.
