C. E. U.

Ok, class, our word for the day is baluchitherium. This word originates from Latin, meaning "beast of Baluchistan." It was a primitive, hornless rhinocerous, and is the the largest known land mammal ever to exist.

It is also the name of one of the coolest instrumental songs ever by Van Halen.

Ok, I listened to it. I have one question for you, beechnut:

Are you a hippy or something?

I took 3 years of Latin and did not know that.

I also did not know you were such a Van Halen fan!
