GA Students’ Newest Debate: Wheels vs. Doors

Read about how GA students are responding to the global dispute regarding if there are more wheels or doors on earth.


Throughout the past two months, a dispute has gone viral on the internet: whether there are more doors or wheels on earth. This topic has become so popular due to the different, radical theories surrounding it, and also due to the fact that people have not come to a universal agreement on the answer. On one hand, wheels are used by the millions in factories and in vehicles. On the other hand, doors are found in almost all structures and make up lots of vehicles as well. This topic was argued on platforms such as Tik Tok, Instagram, and Twitter. The more popular belief was that there are more wheels. The points made in favor of wheels are mainly about factories and classrooms. In factories, conveyor belts and other machines need wheels in order to function, and there are more than 10 million factories worldwide. Additionally, lots of colleges and high schools (for example GA) primarily use desks and chairs with wheels on the bottom of them in order to move them around easily. If you think about the number of desks and chairs in a whole lecture hall, let alone on campus, it becomes clear that wheels outnumber doors. This somewhat popular belief on the internet was challenged, however, after a GA student sent an all-school email with a questionnaire asking if there are more wheels or doors—with surprising results. 

The majority of the student body voted for doors. Most students supported their answers with the fact that there are more than 2.3 billion houses in the world and all of them need front doors. Also, most houses have multiple doors leading to different rooms within the house and most have alternate exits besides the front door.    

Although the student body believes there are more doors in the world, when asking the teachers, the outcome was wheels. Although this debate has settled down tremendously, it is still very unclear whether GA and the world believe there are more wheels than doors in the world.
