Laconic Wit

Sometimes, in between studying for finals and trying not to strangle my professors, I forget exactly why I love history like I love chocolate chip cookies. [That's a lot!] Then I stumble across moments in history like [Photo]threatening letters between Philip II of Macedon and the Spartans.

Philip II: You are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city.
Spartans: If.

  1. You just don't get banter like that these days. How cool would it be to hop in a time machine and go back and witness some of those great moments in history?


Commenting? How lovely. Please try not to talk about dead cats.
