I took the SAT once - December 1978. I still remember one vocabulary word on the test: "wax." Antipodeon wasn't on the test nor has there every been a reason for a Georgian to use the word. However, we are big on these words: supple, winsome, scintillating, agrandizement, and paradigm.

"Supple" is a word that I associate with Mills and Boon novels

Despite that, its a word that should be used more often

Swinging back on topic for a moment, he's miles behind his schedule and surely he should be realising by now the Palembang problem

AAR Aside

I know this isn't the most popular AAR on the forum, but I had thought somebody here had good SAT scores and knew the meaning of "antipodean" vis a vis the Fox.

Nothing? Bueller? Bueller?


Australia (and the surrounding area), because it's on the other side of the world from Britain. IIRC the word's origins (at least in usage) are associated with the British Empire.

Just learned this the other day, actually.


Excellent! Full points!

I don't have time right now to put this in the form of an Aristotelian syllogism (the cat just yukked behind my chair for the third time today and I must be off to google "market for used cats"), but if the Fox is antipodean, and the word means essentially "from Australia", then who was in town this weekend last? Hmm? Hmm?

That makes me think about ancient Greece for some reason?

EDIT: Googled it but remembered where I heard it at the same second I saw the answer. Anyone seen the horrible movie Troy? Brad Pitt plays Achilles. He jumps off a boat and says something about Myrmadons.

Awful, awful movie.

Something to do with half-naked muscle men in kilts, which to be fair is not a common sight in our household

It's the xanthous Myrmidons ya gotta watch out for.

The Fox is not really very xanthous.

Oddly, I liked the movie for the same reason I liked the book. It's unabashedly a "boys book". It is a fun , sword fighting adventure. Maybe I had a good teacher but with a good translation and the frame of mind that The Iliad and is a fun adventure story it goes down a lot easier. Conversely, The Odyssey, is more of a cerebral morality journey. more a "girls book". However, we surly can agree that the movie of the Odyssey is outstanding. I speak of the great "Jason and the Argonauts"

Nope, not that. Or amarillo either.

But he is quite a fan of cricket.

Jason is a whole other story isn't it? The "O" is about Ulysses'/Odysseus' voyage home to rescue his wife Penelope from the suitors. Jason is looking for the Golden Fleece.

Golden Fleece?




Those legs remind me of a lot I saw . . . IN AUSTRALIA!!!!

OT and a sad day--just saw on cable news that James Gandolfini has died. Tony Soprano. A "wow" moment for me. Possibly the greatest TV series in the history of the medium.

The writers guild thinks it is THE best TV show. Just saw a list the other day for 101 best written shows as determined by the WGA. Sopranos topped the list, followed by Seinfeld and MASH, I think.

So, you met an Aussie AE player known as the Fox? I am at a loss. Jrcar?

I've actually got several Antipodean clients, and that includes Kiwiland as well, so I've known the term for some time as it's the easiest way to talk about both countries.

Cheers,
CC

It is brave for an Australian to discuss cricket in public right now, although he must of thought he was safe in Minneapolis. We are on the cusp of the biggest series we have on the cricket calendar and the Australian team is in the doldrums. Expectations are that we will lose badly...

Also, a very antipodean flavour in the combat report posted, with Australia and Canberra in the thick of the action. Was that a hint?

Cheers

You are correct on the first part. It is not jrcar, however.

A hint: He is The Fox while traveling overseas on assignment. In the forum he has a different nom de plume. In this AAR he has yet another nom de guerre.

I had not noticed that, but it is true. CL Perth is lurking about as well. Good catch!

I remember when HBO was doing early promos for the show in the late 90s. Just the family name with a bird sitting on one of the letters I think. I thought it was going to be a sitcom. Premium cable didn't do series then; it was all movies and had been for decades. After the first ep of "The Sopranos" I remember sitting there with my mouth hanging open. And that feeling never let up for 85 more eps, right up to the final black out in the diner. A monumental artistic achievement on every level--writing, acting, editing, music, casting.

True. I am 97% sure The Fox is older than 22, taller than 5 foot nothing, and at this moment has more than 26 Euros in his wallet.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzptt!!!!!

I believe CR has gone into the bookmaking business, and he is laying out odds on future developments.

A 97% chance you will have had beer with The Fox, 22% that it was whiskey, . A 5% spread is a wash. Beyond that you pay CR 26 x the bet. It's very lucrative, and tax-free!

100% chance I drank beer. The Fox drank all sorts of colorful concoctions. I remember one both yellow and blue, with specific gravities involved in the making. He has interesting "rules" in bars re the bartenders. They seemed to love him for them. And within a day he had a whole roster of mixologist friends all over town.
