Because longitude lines, unlike latitude, are not parallel.

Not sure what conclusions you can draw from that, if any. But it is interesting.
That is kinda weird. One moment it makes sense to me and another it doesn't. Maybe if I knew more about the development of navigation it would explain it.

Couldn't longitude prove/disprove flat/globe earth? In the southern hemisphere, if longitudinal lines come back together at a single southern point, we're on a globe. On the other hand, if they're found to keep expanding, it means we're on a flat surface. Does that make sense?
