geeky conversation of the day

this convo started off about the fallacies of the Star Trek holodeck. (how the hell do you gallop a damn horse into the sunset in a 6' by 6' room anyway?!) then it took an ugly turn.

peep: what i don't get is, with all of that technology, how come they can't invent doors that don't make so much noise when they open and close?

me: it's because they have that dumb blind bastard, Geordi, walking around! they can't very well have him standing in front of a door for ten minutes because it opened so quietly he didn't know about it. the Enterprise has to be handicapped accessible.

peep: oh. that makes sense.

I thought the doors made noise so if whatever characters were getting their groove on they would hear if someone walked in if they forgot to lock the door...
