"What we've got here is...failure to communicate."

 

That line is a meme within itself, but it always struck me that Martin's reading of the line was entirely different from what you'd imagine. You think "tough guy" then you get the ultimate in job Nazi, justifying and escaping behind the badge with a sort of slimy security. It's great.

 

Sorry, thesp-geek.

On this day in 1419 the First Defenestration of Prague occurred, when an enraged mob threw a judge and thirteen members of the council from the windows of the town hall.  

 

King Wenceslaus IV of Bohemia apparently died of shock shortly after he was informed of these events.
