Physics: a round cover is too big to fall through it's own hole, it's easy to roll away (no lifting) and when replacing it, it goes back without need to line it up.

A round pipe has more strength than a square one, so pipes are round, and so are the covers that go over them.

Pipes are round so the manhole fits better. Most men are round not square.

I would think with a square corners could pop up popping tires, with a circle it is less likely to fall in if loose

If you’re new to the world of cannabis.

If you’re new to the world of cannabis, even setting foot inside a dispensary can seem like an overwhelming thought.  

Much like wine is available in red, white and blends of both, marijuana comes in three basic types: Indica, Sativa vs Indica. Each differently named variety is called a strain and falls under one of these three categories. Again, like wine, weed comes in an array of types, each with its unique high, chemical makeup and flavor profile.
