question of the day:

The thought provoking question of the day from a 6 year old:
         "Jess, why do they call them doors? I mean, I know why they call these seat belts, because they kinda look like belts and they are on seats. But doors?" 
I didn't have an answer. But I just googled it.

Webster's Dictionary says: 
Middle English dure, dor, from Old English duru door & dorgate; akin to Old High German turi door, Latin fores, Greekthyra
First Known Use: before 12th century

You know, he kinda has a point.
