Random questions: Spiders and what they eat

Just occasionally, I think I'll just throw out to you some of the random questions that have cluttered up my brain for years.

Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?

There are simply some things that humanity isn't meant to know....(just ask your creationist friends!)
