Are there more doors or wheels in the world? Seems like a stupid question, we know, but it’s one that has captivated Twitter.
It all started on Saturday, March 5, when Twitter user Ryan Nixon tweeted: “My mates and I are having the STUPIDEST debate… And I am here for it. Do you think there are more doors or wheels in the world?”

And I am here for it.
Do you think there are more doors or wheels in the world?

Nixon’s poll went viral, with a whopping 223,347 people opining on this totally frivolous matter. The verdict was split almost in half, with 46.4% saying there are more doors in the world while 53.6% said there were more wheels.
This is pretty typical. When first asked the question, all the people we polled immediately said “wheels” first, probably because everyone they know drives a car. Then they sat and thought about all the structures that exist, from universities to office buildings to prisons, and realized that maybe, just maybe, there were more doors in the world.
While this just might be one of those queries that has no one “right” answer, that hasn’t stopped people on Twitter from trying to figure it out.
“hmmm…every average house say 20 doors…every family 18 wheels…every bus 8 wheels two doors train 80 wheels 4doors…,” one Twitter user wrote. “Hospitals, schools, hundreds of doors no wheels…bicyles 2 Wheels no doors…my GUESS DOORS.”

Others are quite confident in their original, knee-jerk response.
“Who is voting doors???” another Twitter user asked. “There’s wheels on everything. I have wheels on my garment rack, makeup storage holder, rubbish bin. It’s definitely wheels.”

We could get even more technical and try to define what constitutes a door (do cupboards count?) but we won’t go down that increasingly infuriating rabbit hole.
One thing this debate does prove? We have way too much fucking time on our hands.
