Men originally wore high heels so, when riding a horse, they could stand in stirrups without their foot sliding through.

Leticia Olsen, IN BANGALORE INDIA, THERE ARE GOOD PORK SHOPS. MY FAVOURITE SAUSAGES ARE CALLED "MASALA SAUSAGE" PROBABLY LIKE THE GERMAN "CURRY".

Maridel Millanes, Napoleon was not short going by the average male height of the time. The average was 5' 7" in 1800 and Napoleon was 5' 7" tall.

😉I love the fork and the cuban shoes stories. I wonder how much will it cost now for the antique enthusiast. If the Germans eat a lot of sausages, so are the Danes. Danish sausages can be purchased easily in a sidewalk vendors and very delicious.😋

Men going to war in high heel shoes adds to the agony. Trench foot seems quite friendly now
