    Rivers flow from uphill to downhill, connecting two bodies of water or a lake with a hole in the ground. Lakes are self contained and keep their water except for what evaporates out or leaks/flows through the dam.

    A river flows from one place to another. A lake is a contained body of water (although rivers may flow in and out of it).

    A lake is where you get drunk on a boat.

    A river is where you lose all the cartilage in your knees from hitting rocks on a raft.
