Lockdown, or Lockdown Mode, is when a public school building is literally locked down so that the Police, as well as the Great Drug-Sniffing Dogs, can search - without a warrant - lockers for drugs and other Contraband Items. And before you ask, yes it is constitutional. I am so sorry.
1. During the annual lockdown mode, we must turn off all the lights in the classroom and not move a muscle; if we are seen in the hallways we are automatically a suspect.

2. Many students question whether this Torture violates the fourth amendment - as there is search and seizure going on without a Warrant - but I'm afraid that you lose many constitutional rights when we go into our schools.

1. Crazy latin literary/art term for a reminder of death. Memento Mori is often seen in 17th century Dutch paintings.

2. The names of two of the best megawads ever created for DooM II.
1. If you look at that painting sideways, you'll see a memento mori.

2. After spending a week beating the expertly-crafted levels of Memento Mori II, I was blown away. Every other DooM WAD that followed was bland.

Lacrosse is a trendy sport that seems to have been idolized by many in the past 5 years. It appears to be a rather preppy sport, although I am not the best judge for that.
1)Honestly, I first heard of Lacrosse two years ago, when someone in my social studies class made a Lacrosse stick as part of a Native American research project.

2)The preppily-dressed senior had to go to her Honda to retrieve the lacrosse stick she forgot.

A newfangled genre of pop music that combines two unrelated elements: the lyrical content of emo (sob, sob, sob, SOB) and the loud guitars of today's metal.

The singers in Emo Metal bands tend to - for some reason only few can decipher - scream as much of the lyrics as humanly possible.

Possibly the best band to come out of Texas. It consists of Britt Daniel (vocals, piano, etc.), Jim Eno (drums), and various temporary members. Elektra records had them for a while, but Merge records signed them after being dropped.

Music Lover: So what they're in Time magazine! They're still good!

Indie Snob: (groans) ok... fine... (immediately gets addicted)
