73. HumBugg: Door Knobs December 5, 2006

 Can anyone tell me why door knobs still exist? Door handles are far superior. You can open a door with a handle with one finger, or even a butt cheek (when hands and arms are full), which is easier and more sanitary for you. Handles also allow for a larger range of aesthetic design options.

Until then, long live the door handle!
