they may take our land...but they will never take our property!

Yeah, wrap your head around that one.

Whatever happened to the word "spelunking"? My Property professor was talking about going "caving" today, and I started to wonder why the word "spelunking" was not used. I mean, they used it on Carmen Sandiego as one of the villains' hobbies. Plus, it's a much funnier word than "caving". "Spelunking" just sounds like a rock-and-roll hobby.

Then again, I shouldn't expect too much from the man who, in class today, uttered the following: "What was that show with the woman who carried a sword and wore armor...Xena? Yeah, I used to watch Xena with some friends..."

And people judge my TV watching habits........

Spelunking has a bad connotation among the caving community and has become defined to mean yahoos that "explore" caves using one flashlight with dead batteries while wearing light t-shirts or other innapropriate clothing. They tend to end up dead and make it hard on the rest of us. Sort of like squids in motorcycling. Those are the crotchrocket riders in shorts and flipflops who tend to look like a squid after they crash all over the road.
