Ladders are used typically for reaching high distances. When one is not tall enough for such height, the ladder is strategically placed as to ensure the safety and the well being of the reacher. Normally, the ladder will be placed at a 90 degree angle, thus forming a right triangle. Henceforth, ladders are very important in everyday life...unless you are the jolly green giant...who does not need them. Ladders have also been compared to stairs or steps (one could imagine this being where the word 'step-ladder' derived from). Step-ladders are aproximately smaller then regular ladders and usually used to reach things on high shelves or on top of fridge/ovens or to reach cookie jars by five year olds. Ladders can be used to put up Christmas tree stars, Christmas lights, and oversized satellite dishes on the roof of your house. You may purchase a ladder or step-ladder at your local Lowes or Home Depot or department stores.
