For Sparta!


Yesterday I learned: That much of the dialogue in ‘300’ was supposedly historically accurate with the exception being the most memorable phrase from the movie “This is Sparta!”. When King Xerxes sent his messenger it was with the message “Give us your earth and water”. When Leonidas booted the messenger down the well, the message was not the one above but “Dig it out for yourselves!”. Equally badass and worthy of a Hollywood action-flick one-liner in it’s own right.
