comment Why are normal water coolers so low?
Well, coolers have been that height for longer than the ADA has existed, so it's not just ADA. As a shorter person who has sometimes replaced the 5-gallon jugs on these things, I would certainly balk at having to lift it a foot or so higher.

comment Why do people mount TVs so high on the wall in their homes?
You make many good points. Is it just that flat-panels now allow us to put TVs "where we've always wanted them, but you can't wall-mount a CRT"? Older TVs often sat on stands/cabinets, putting them out of bumping-into range and not precluding under-TV storage. Did we lean back on our couches less then while cursing our inability to put the TV higher?

comment Why do public restrooms place the paper holders so low?
I just tried an experiment (because hey, I'm wearing jeans and a t-shirt today, and I was alone, and for science!), and from inside one stall, in order to reach the paper in the next one over, I had to lie on the floor and reach through and up.

Interesting -- I never thought about interactions with grab-bars.
