Indiana Jones was by FAR my childhood (and young-adulthood) hero.
I had the hat that I ordered through a Last Crusade Pepsi promotion and whip. When I was 7 or 8, all I wanted was the white suit jacket that he wore in the opening scene of Temple of Doom - the only white jackets for kids then were Christening suits. My parents actually bought me one. I'm Jewish btw.
I actually majored in classical archaeology too. Havent fought any Nazis though.
