Life's Eternal Mysteries

Skippers, Mates, Boatswains, and other distinguished salts:
Coming back from our Long Cruise, my Sea Scouts were mulling the following
mysteries which I believe to be eternal:
1) Why do hotdogs come 8 to a package and hotdog buns come 6 to a package?
2) If nothing sticks to teflon, how does teflon adhere to the pan?
3) Why does the Long Cruise award whose image is circular and whose
successive awards are arches (intended to abutt the award) come on a square
patch when circular patches are common and easy to produce?
Are there other Sea Scout eternal mysteries out there? Like why all key
one-of-a-kind parts are small, expensive, and gravitate toward the bilges (or
over the side) at critical moments.
Is there such a thing as "Sea Scout proof"?
