But, actually I am a student of archaeology.

Well, as a wearer of fedoras, I would advise you have them properly cleaned and blocked rather than taking them to the dry cleaners. Otherwise, that was just down right funny. Should I be worried that everysingle one those made sense to me?

-Oh, and don't read the other students eye-lids.

I plan to use this picture if I ever become a professor and have an office:

P.S. aside from the machete, this really has nothing to do with arms or armour, does it?

What about the usefulness of a revolver vs. a sword? That's arms talk if I've ever heard it. Besides, that scene is probably the funniest in the entire trilogy.

This is all interesting stuff, but I'd really like to point out that this forum is about the discussion of arms and armour. We stray a lot on this site, and often have to allow ourselves freedom to discuss things that are only vaguely related, but some things, like this, are a bit further astray than I'd like them to be.

Please read the description of the off-topic forum and curb your sarcasm:

Discussions that do not belong in the other areas that are still related to the arms and armour hobby


Thank you.

Not being sarcastic - not intentionally anyways....

Off-topic - but still on the general topic of the forum. I'll remember that....

My bad then.

Here's a fun little fact Razz

"The scene in Cairo in which Indy just shoots a sword-wielding man was intended to be a long, choreographed fight scene featuring Indy's whip versus the Arab man's saber. Harrison Ford, suffering from dysentery after three months of filming in Tunisia, couldn't face the three additional days of filming and suggested that this much shorter version should be tried instead. Some sources attribute the idea to 'Steven Spielberg' rather than to Ford. In the American Film Institute's tribute to Spielberg, Ford stated that, on the day of shooting, he begged Spielberg to find a way to get the scene done in less than two hours so he could get back to the hotel before a dysentery attack hit him. Spielberg said the only way they could complete the scene so quickly would be for Ford to "pull out your gun and shoot him." Crew members standing nearby began to laugh uncontrollably at the idea." - imdb.com


I heard this from my friend a few days ago, but I had to read it for myself Laughing Out Loud

Above all else, be armed
