Why is a street opening with a cover called a manhole, and not a womanhole or a person hole?

because they are/were big enough for the men working in sewers to use them as access.

or it's slang.

Because back in the day when they were invented, only men went down there.

Now imagine if you had the hobby of collecting manholes? Would you hang them on a wall? Store them in a humongous scrapbook(*you'd definately get muscles from lifting it!). Trade them with friends....Hmmmmm....

The last idea of trading made them sound like friggin pogs!!!!

Just figure there are multitudes of everyday stuff we as a race overlook on a daily basis.And never question! Kind of like the therory that 3/4 of the world looks left and right, but never up or down!

I always want to know answers too things.....
