Why do we park in driveways and drive on parkways?

Why is the third hand of a watch called the second hand?

Why do our noses run and our feet smell?

For the same reason Americans mail letters via the Post Office and Britons post letters via the Royal Mail.

They're called hyperbolic cooling towers.  The wide bottom area allows for a large amount of "carrier" material.  Hot cooling water is sprayed over the carrier material and evaporates.  As the steam/hot water vapors rise, the narrowing throat accelerates laminar vapor flow, making the cooling process more efficient.

Interesting! Thank you!

I am creating my own spirituality every day as a man. Any advice? I am not restricted or bias toward any belief system, so anything from anywhere is useful.

Center your spirituality around God. He sent his son from heaven to take the lashings and bare the cross so that your sins and transgressions may be forgiven!! How could you follow anything else? 

Those are boring. Next.lol seriosuly though, be a little more in depth.

Becoming a follower of Anton Lavey is a great way to go if being a theatrical malcontent douchebag is your goal. 

Whatever gets you through the night, kid. 

Boring? Okay, let's start from the beginning. Jesus Christ was born a virgin... Think about that for a second. He came and walked this earth with us as a human being, so that he could relate to us. He suffered the same things we do. Stress, pain, loss, etc... But he did it sinlessly. The man was perfect. He performed miracles such as making a blind man see, allowing a lame man to walk, healing lepers, turning water into wine, and casting out demons from men. He fed 5,000 people with nothing more than 2 small fish and a few loaves of bread with multiple baskets of food as leftovers. Even though he performed all of there wonders, people higher up in their hierarchy became jealous because he was drawing attention away from them and from their  "gods." So they decided to have him crucified. Then, that was the most painful and embarrassing form of execution. Beforehand, they lash you with a cat if nine tails, which is a a braided whip with nine whips put together. Within these braids were pebbles and broken glass and 40 lashes was known to kill a man. Jesus took well above that number and survived. It was written by an eyewitness account that his inner bowels were exposed. After the beating, he was forced to carry his own cross to the hill where he would be crucified. There, he died and when he died, there was an earthquake that tore the veil in the temple, symbolizing that you could now approach God yourself. For God's own son's blood was spilled to pay for your sins. Now, the wages of sin are death, but because of Jesus, your debt has been payed. Only by allowing God to come into your heart, will you spend eternity in heaven.
