Porter. A man who never seemed to give up…pushed himself to the ultimate to get done what had to be done. Adored the hero.

I loved Porter too. I was watching him last night actually. We all need a hero right now.

Is riparian an English word? Sounds like it would have a French origin.

it’s an English word. Original is probably Latin, ripa -ae, the shore or the bank.

In French ” riverain”, you are not far to be able to learn French, I am so Happy of it, Jane. 🙂
To stay in the mood of the word riparain:
Latin is often uses for geologic, geographic words, that requires technical terminologies. As for the Spanish word “cuesta”, translated by cost in English or côte in French. The begin of the terminology Is from the latin root word.
English is uses, for example, in see science. I like the words: tidal wave, fossil-sharks-shells, ripple-mark …Perhaps because scientists write in English or because they were the first to study those subjects.
I let Hariclea speak about the Greek language in sciences.
After I agree that you will easily find a term to describe the photos, where Richard was in the middle of the river in a barrel or in a submarine. I hate Static and fluid dynamic physic’s.

That word was completely new to me. The English vocabulary is truly amazing.
And I love that image and character. I wish there’d been more seasons of Strike Back with John Porter.
