We've taken Aqaba.
Taken Aqaba? Who has?
We have. Our side in this war has. We have...
You mean the Turks have gone?
No, they're still there but they've no boots. Prisoners, sir. We took them prisoners, the entire garrison. No that's not true. We killed some, too many really. I'll manage it better next time. There's been a lot of killing, one way or another. Cross my heart and hope to die, it's all perfectly true.
It isn't possible.
Yes it is. I did it.

G'day David in (L.) You have quite a scholarly knowledge of movie quotes.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 12:45pm chresti:

I loved the movie, David (in London)
Avatar 12:45pm still b/p:

As I recall it...
Lawrence sits alone all night and ponders and ponders, until a bit of dune sand sliding down from behind him gives him the sudden inspiration to sneak-attack Aqaba from BEHIND! ...all the defenses, including big guns, were installed to protect from a seaward attack! Hence, the movie's first ultra-punishing "we can't do it!" long strategic trek across open desert to achieve a war objective.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Carmichael:

Maddy's father created the TV show Z Cars.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm David Dichelle:

Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 12:47pm David (in London):

Hubig, its a favourite movie of mine, so any mention of Aqaba is bound to set me off.

chrestikins, it's an absolute doozy.

still b/p - Lessons that were completely forgotten by the same army a few years later in Singapore.

Carmichael - Now you're setting me off on the Z-Cars theme tune.

Avatar 🚂 1:00pm TDK60:

Great to hear Steeleye Span. / Going with Suriname again.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Handy Haversack:

Hubig, I take a scene, chop into as many lines as there are games in a week, and then put a match-up after each line with the point spread. I intersperse some screencaps from the scene or other relevant images. And it ends up with a nice bit of found poetry to it.

(E.g.: Fredo -- you're my older brother, and I love you. But don't ever take sides with anyone against the family again. Ever. || NYG @ TB -11.5)

I recently did production editing on the English-language version of a Danish book on a USAian nuclear-powered "research" outpost in the Greenland icecap. Might be making news soon enough as climate change will have it and its reactor out of the ice sooner or later.

Funny, Leipzig's Grünau district also has 48,000 people.
Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Handy Haversack:

One interesting byproduct of Random Road is the way it sort of unsettles the notion of sovereignty or nationhood. Time after time, the place we land's status as a "nation" is compromised or complicated or conditional enough to make the whole idea sort of take off its clothes and show how impoverished it is -- such an obvious construct by the people who benefit the most by saying what belongs to whom.

Nothing revelatory there, just nice that RR keeps the whole notion from putting on airs and acting like it has any claim to a seat by the fire.

Avatar 🚂 Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Handy Haversack:

Yeah, they have to write *something* on the ticket, David!

Also: "In 2007, the existence of a new island was announced. Named "Uunartoq Qeqertaq" (English: Warming Island), this island has always been present off the coast of Greenland, but was covered by a glacier. This glacier was discovered in 2002 to be shrinking rapidly, and by 2007 had completely melted away, leaving the exposed island.[91] The island was named Place of the Year by the Oxford Atlas of the World in 2007.[92] Ben Keene, the atlas's editor, commented: "In the last two or three decades, global warming has reduced the size of glaciers throughout the Arctic and earlier this year, news sources confirmed what climate scientists already knew: water, not rock, lay beneath this ice bridge on the east coast of Greenland. More islets are likely to appear as the sheet of frozen water covering the world's largest island continues to melt""

I saw a '50s film on Rarefilmm from Greenland recently. Forget the name right now. Though not the film's subject, it showed a seemingly paternalistic relation between the Euros and Inuit. Also, those cute sled dogs. A boy fell over and they tried to make him lunch.

My own dear Ellan Vannin
With its green hills by the sea.
