Archaeologists do it in situ

My favorite part of those movies is how these supposed 'archeologist' go around destroying irreplaceable artifacts. Pretty sure that's not how it works.

Because they are dirty?

Pretty sure first archeologists used dynamite more often than brushes

Because if I want to look at an ugly person, I'll look in a mirror.

Because no one wants to watch a popcorn movie starring an ugly person (unless it's a beautiful person who's made up to look like an ugly person)

They didn't dynamite the whole area just to be sure.

That's only because they didn't have access to historical records like The Mummy and Indiana Jones. If they had, they would have gone ahead and nuked the places--why take chances?

The best way to a man's heart is to tickle his prostate while doing butt stuff.

The Dig was a nice movie. Even when Ralph Fiennes didn't immediately murder Ken Stott. That would have been sweet.

The reason, right there.

They have a product to sell, and sexy people move product.

Because I know even when I'm 5000 years old an archaeologist will still want to jump my bones.

I've only ever known one archaeologist and she was super hot, so, checks out.

Was it my neighbor's daughter?  Because their daughter is a smokin hot archeologist.

I'm not taking any sides here until  raerae weighs in

Why does Hollywood think 22 year-old, 110lb girls can knock out 220lb men with one punch? Because Hollywood is full of morons.

Is her name Melissa? If not, then no.

Don't worry, all your loved ones will be properly anal swabbed for their protection.

Lara Croft is not an archeologist, even if the rebooted version tries to call herself that. At best she's an "explorer/adventurer," at worst she's a grave robber.

Jones is a history professor that tomb-raids on the side and gets caught up in hijinks (accidental adventures). He might practice some actual archeology as well, but we're never shown it in the films.
