Doors or Wheels

The debate over whether there are more doors or wheels in the world continues

There is an extremely popular internet debate over whether there are more doors or wheels in the world. This began after Twitter user Ryan Nixon tweeted the controversial question.

“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?” said Nixon.

In just 24 hours after it was posted, over 223,000 people answered the poll and it was found that 53.6% of them believed that there were more wheels than doors in the world. Many arguments were made and some even took it as far as working out complex formulas to reach an answer.

This is just another example of the many pointless, but entertaining arguments found on the internet. A few other unnecessary debates include “The Dress” from 2015 and “Yanny or Laurel” from 2018. These two debates both reached definitive answers, but unfortunately, it is unlikely that the doors vs. wheels debate will ever be solved. 

“The Dress” was proven to actually be blue and black, not white and gold. As for the ever popular “Yanny or Laurel” debate, the actual word recorded in the original clip was “laurel”, not “yanny”. 

The doors and wheels argument is especially difficult to put to end because there is no global wheel or door database to analyze the data. 

Groups of people will tear themselves apart in disagreements over these absurd debates. Arguments like these are not only breaking the internet, but also breaking peoples’ brains.

This controversy has become popular across many social media platforms including Twitter (where it initially broke out), Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok. 

The argument over whether there are more doors or wheels in the world will continue plaguing peoples’ minds and it can only be expected that many more meaningless, but amusing disagreements like this will reach the internet in the future.
