Revolutionary thought of the day:
"Mankind. Ready to kill. I wonder how humanity managed to survive."

"We overcame our instinct for violence."

-- Mr. Spock and Captain Kirk, "Spectre of the Gun", Star Trek, original air date December 31, 1969

I was just on reddit, where someone showed a quote by some comedian saying how instead of quoting the Bible and then saying the name of the book and verse, he quotes Lord of the Rings or whatever. I commented that it reminded me of when Seinfeld quoted Star Trek II to Susan's parents at Susan's funeral. And now I come here to find Star Trek quotes!

Of course Seinfeld is chock full of revolutionary quotes too -----

"Jerry: Why don't you just get lost?
Man: Why don't you get lost?!
Jerry: Because I was standing here, that's why!
Man: Oh yeah?!
Jerry: Yeah!
(The man walks away)
Jerry: I kinda like this opera crowd. I feel tough. Anybody else got a problem?"
