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.

They use a similar method but with air in the Middle East.

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.

LaVey Satanism.

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.

LaVey Satanism is...something modern. It takes a strong "might is right" (Even taking a lot from a book called Might is Right, taken from the beginning of the last century...the ideas and even skepticism that is in Satanism is simply amassed from before) and individualistic but yet very communalistic. 

Contrary to popular belief, Satanists are not devil worshippers, "Satan" in this sense is pure Human Desire. A strong aspect of Satanism is to simply follow ones desires, so long as they hurt no other, to defend thyself and what you care for, and to simply free one self from the chains of old and stagnant religions.

The text of LaVeys book, The Satanist bible, is easy to acquire, along with other Satanist writings written after, such as the Scriptures, the Satanist Witch, and others.

Satanism is more Philosphy than religion, but has a little form but they don't really officially proselytize. I guess I've converted a few friends to it by simple sharing of text, and LaVey was a "bad" person as well, and the whole thing was written in a Public Panic, but hey. It works.
