In canoeing, a difficult stretch where the inexperienced frequently capsize.

1. A ginormous house built on the site of a former site of a teardown that towers over its neighboring houses. Like the Hummer FUV, these houses appear to bully surrounding ones.

2. A McMansion characterized by its huge scale and cookie cutter design that embodies the Hummer “I got mine” lifestyle.

A house purchased to be demolished where the land is used to build a larger, more expensive house. Teardowns are purchased because the land they sit on is worth more without the house.
