Tell that to the peole of the village my grandparents come
from. There are no doors. There are mud+straw walls and roofs, and a
curtain hung over the opening. What doors there are, (like the post
office) have handles. Nary a door knob in sight.
Now tell these people that you have to *twist* the suckers --
not hit them, not push, or pull -- and heaven help you trying to
explain why, and how, to lock and unlock them too.
Too much cultural bias, my friend.
