Too many people use the term "human scale" to simple many "short," of course, when it's a lot more complex than that.
Oh, come on, Dry. Where's your sense of humour? I was getting tongue-in-cheek and sarcastic on the line re human scale. Thought "Giant scale" was a dead giveaway on that count.

I'm fine with human scale, so long as we use the following font when mentioning concept:
HUMAN SCALE.

Who said anything about giant scale? I'm totally fine with merely HUMAN SCALE.. I'm cool with urban planning practices.
