Random Trivia

in the 1300s, people would nail a small metal plate and a knocker on a door so that people could announce their arrival at your house. Over time, the whole thing came to be known as a nail, or a doornail. Eventually, the nail would wear out from use and time, and would come to be considered "dead," or out of life.

If there's no life, then there is death, and if someone loses their life, they have become as "dead as a doornail."
