When the guy who would grow up to become the blogger Tacitus was 13 years old, he went to see “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” which created in him an apparently lifelong thirst for knowledge about antiquities.

So when the grown-up Tacitus travels to the Middle East, he gets to hire a driver to take him to the Treasury, the spot in the Canyon of the Crescent Moon in Jordan where the discovery of the Holy Grail was set in the movie.

That, in and of itself, is way cool. But the coolest part? The driver’s name: Sallah.
