Revenge is a dish best served cold

This is a funny thing I forgot to, but must, mention. When I was in the STA Travel office in Delhi, I noticed a new slogan they're using on their posters:

"Better to die on your feet than live on your knees."

Other than being, in my opinion, a rather poor choice for a student travel company with nervous parents to placate (better to die..?), this is a famous Klingon proverb, so there's obviously a Star Trek geek in the upper echelons of the STA marketing department.

They would have been better advised to choose this quote of Kahless the Unforgettable: "To those who are overly cautious, everything is impossible."

Q'apla!

Better to die on your feet than live on your knees is a Zapata quote! (pretty sure). always used now for various revolutions.

Or Cuban revolutionary Jose Marti. It doesn't matter. The important thing to remember, Jhenn, is...

DON'T MESS WITH MY KLINGON JOKES!
