I saw a 300-350 pound woman at the grocery store wearing 6 inch high heels today, I was in awe! How could someone keep their balance at that size, can you imagine the pressure per square inch on those little 3/8ths diameter heels, on a warm day you would think she would drive those things right into the asphalt parking lot.
Isn't the whole idea of high heels the way that it makes a woman's legs and behind look? I'm kinda thinking this whole effect would be lost at that size.
The whole experience left an impression on me (as I'm sure it also did to the tile floor in the store) it was like when you look at a suspension bridge and realize the awesome strength of those cables.
