Why do they make sleeping bag around 7 1/2 foot long when the average person is only 5' foot 7"?

Update:

Go to REI and see what they have hanging on there walls. I haven't bought one yet, just looking for one 6foot long to save space on my bicycle trip. Say a Pinole 20 bag.?

    Because us shorties can sleep in a bag that's too long a lot easier than a tall person can sleep in a bag that's too short.

    There are people over the average height. I'm one of them.  I need over 6' just to fit.

    And, if you put one foot in boiling water and the other foot in ice, on the average, you'd be comfortable.

    Because they come in different sizes so you bought the the wrong size.
