    Like eating, why some of them eat using chopsticks, others using fork and spoon, fork and knife, chopsticks and fork.

    Or shower/bathe, some are soaking in bathub, some shower etc.

    Or taking dump. Some sitting, some squating.

    Why is that? Why don't human invent one way to eat, taking dump, shower and use it throughout history.

    If you see different cultures has it's different way to live.

    Human sure is weird creature.

    Why be the same as other's? each culture is made unique with these differences, if every culture behaved the same way you would just travel to see the view not anything bad with that but learning the cultural bits that make that place different is really fun too.

    People have different ideas, opinions, cultures due to free will and being lazy and trying to be popular.

    Because people are shaped by their environments just as they shape their environments.

    because they are different humans, in different locations, in different times, with different tools, with different capabilities, different needs, etc.

    Does anyone actually prefer squatting when crapping? It's my belief that you squat when you don't have something to sit on.

    By logic, you too are weird.

    I feel like this is a 'meaning of life' level ponderance. It goes to the root of human nature.

    In the end we are a big Ape Family. We are the ape, we dominate the planet, thus planet of the apes.

    Yes we are squating we prefer squating. Some of us can't use sitting toilet at all. Me? I can do both, but I prefer squating. I even try different thing, like taking dump in wilderness, in the bank of river. In public toilet, dunno why but taking dump in the open feels good. Don't forget tissue paper, or water and soap in my country.

    Because experience they had throughout their lives. If you learn how to eat with chopsticks from your childhood you will do it the same way through your whole live, unless you didn't change environment where everyone eating with forks.
