    I had never thought of manhole covers as an art form, but yesterday we found this while on a walk:

    Today's quiz question: Why are most manhole covers circular?

    So they cannot fall through the aperture by accident, correct?

    Yes, it's so they can't be dropped down the hole below either accidentally or deliberately.
