That said, I wanted to pull this post up: It's hip to be square (or why I would like a minivan)[/URL] up from the "User Centered Archives*" again because I still manage to encounter this on a weekly basis.

...you realize that you have now caged yourself off from the known world. Pinned between your car's interior, your two doors and the car behind you. Not too bad a proposition, until you realize that your groceries and child are on the other side of the doors. So you have to load them all up while opening and closing the door each time (why not put everything in the back? -I live in Minnesota)
Oh boy- ...those doors aren't to scale
*We have a preservation society of volunteer historians that administrate the archives. Lot's of faded yellow parchment, magnifying glasses, environmental controls, protective glass cases, etc...
