Lawrence of Arabia is a World War I story. The Aswan Dam was built in the 60s. In fact, the dam wouldn't have been there to be in the movie, had it been filmed in Egypt (instead of Jordan, Morocco, and Spain(!)).
So, basically, WTF? Even if the Aswan Dam counted as a "man-made waterway", it's absolutely wrong for being featured in the movie Lawrence of Arabia.
Plus - what? $11,000 got someone into the semi-finals? The freaking J bus has been late every day this week, and I totally missed three days, but there must have been some either low-scoring games or total routs.
