This word originally was used in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) to describe a place in which losers fight to the death, but now used to describe:

1. A place at the center of potential conflict, usually political or controversial conflict
2. A place in which anything goes, in contrast to outside the thunderdome where rules do not apply

That bad-ass cage where Mel Gibson faught Master Blaster with the chainsaw and bungee cords and there where all kinds of drunken Aussies yelling, "Two men enter, One man leaves." Then big Mel(Madd Max) totally thrashes that giant ogre and then that little midget weeps cuz the ogre was his friend and I laughed at the midget and then they play this primitive game of Wheel of Fortune and Mel gets sent into the destert and he meets these Lord of the Flies kids who wanna fly on this delapidated 747 and theres quick sand and boomerangs and all kinds of shoulderpads with spikes and nitrous powered dune buggies....its awesome. I think I confused a couple different movies but who gives a damn, right? Thunderdome man, you know with that crazy black bitch pop star...kinda like Conan the Destroyer where that crazy black bitch with the huge stick wails on Walt Chamberalain...but that is a different story.
We shall have a bungee cord chainsaw deathmatch in the Thunderdome my friend!

The greatest way to settle a dispute in the world. It has been popularized by many Ivy League fraternities to settle any moments of conflict. As two people dispute, they will challenge each other to "a thunderdome". This occurs when a spectator takes a trash can(places it in between the contestants to be throw up into), fills as many solo cups as possible with beer, and plays the song "final countdown on repeat". The goal is to settle the dispute by drinking as many as the beers in the solo cups as you can until you throw up. The first person to throws up loses, and foam does not count.

Perhaps one of the most challenging sex positions of all time, requiring flexibility and practice. The dude lies flat on his back, while his woman lies on her back on top of him. She then arches up to a "dome" while he fucks her from behind. Typically a move attempted after the consumption of alcohol.
Dude, you've been seeing this chick for 2 months - have you thunderdome'd her yet?
