A DEBATE has gone viral on social media, with people on both sides joining in the fun.
The diligently discussed topic: Are there more doors in the world or more wheels?
How many doors does the White House have?
The White House – home of the President of the United States and his family – serves as the government building in Washington DC.
Due to its considerable size and many rooms and hallways, the White House has several doors within its walls.
There are a total of 412 doors throughout the building.
In addition to the 412 doors, there are 147 windows with 35 bathrooms and 132 different rooms.
Currently, President Joe Biden and his family live in the White House along with their two pets, Commander and Willow.
The First Family previously owned two other dogs, Champ and Major.
Who built the White House?
James Hoban – an Irish architect born in the 1750s – is credited with designing the original White House.
America’s first President, George Washington, chose the site to build the White House in 1791.
Eight years later, the still-unfinished White House welcomed its first occupants: John Adams and his wife, Abigail.
After a fire caused by the War of 1812, the White House had to be rebuilt.
Hoban was working on the project again when James Monroe moved into the house in 1817.
What is the doors and wheels debate?
In March 2022, Twitter user Ryan Nixon sparked a global conundrum on social media.
“My buddies and I are having the STUPIDEST debate…” he wrote at the time.
“Do you think there are more doors or wheels in the world?”
Thousands of users on Twitter, Instagram and TikTok began sharing their opinions on this topic.
While many people said there were more wheels, some insisted on more doors.
According to a TikToker, Kate: “I was adamant that there were more doors than wheels because there are so many skyscrapers and hotels.”
She continued, “BUT there’s probably a chair in each of those four-wheeled rooms… and what about how many drawers there are? DRAWERS HAVE SMALL WHEELS.”
Another user added, “I was on the team until my roommate brought up advent calendars…”
