"It was said that one might wander days and nights together through its intricate tangle of rifts and chasms, and never find the end of the cave; and that he might go down, and down, and still down, into the earth, and it was just the same - labyrinth underneath labyrinth, and no end to any of them. No man 'knew' the cave. That was an impossible thing. Most of the young men knew a portion of it, and it was not customary to venture much beyond this known portion. Tom Sawyer knew as much of the cave as any one." -The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
I'm fascinated with pop culture and often have these related half-baked ideas and connections floating around in my head. The culture-to-cave comparison seemed adequate, particularly while I was re-reading Tom Sawyer. I figure that I know as much about "pop culture" as the next person, so why not explore?
