What is the shape of snowball? i thought it's circle but my friend said it's a sphere.
What? Odd question, I'd say. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snowball

Hi Asian Girl!
I think you mean snowflake.
If so, I agree with you:
For more details, see this.
Why would a snowflake be shaped like a sphere?
You'll have to ask Asian Girl's friend!
… you're trying to get an introduction, aren't you … ?
My question (and, I suspect, Defennder's, except for a typo) would be "Why would a snowflake be shaped like a circle". All snowflakes are more like 6 pointed stars.
I don't know what language Asian Girl speaks but it might be a translation problem. A circles is "flat"- two dimensional- in a plane. A sphere is 3 dimensional.
(Very strictly speaking, a snowball is a "ball"- a "sphere" is the surface of a ball.)
But a 6 pointed star is like a circle …
… especially when it's spinning beautifully! :!!)
