Bastille Day is the French national holiday, celebrated on 14 July each year. In France, it is called Fête Nationale ("National Celebration"), in official parlance, or more commonly quatorze juillet ("14 July"). It commemorates the 1790 Fête de la Fédération, held on the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789; the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern French nation, and of the reconciliation of all the French inside the constitutional monarchy which preceded the First Republic, during the French Revolution.

if the guillotine and the Terror had occured in the US there'd be all sorts of books and interpretive museum exhibits about it. The place where the guillotine actually stood would be a National Historic Monument and hundreds of weepy self-flagellators would show up each year and wail about how evil we are.

in France at the Place de la Concorde, where the guillotine stood and much of the Terror took place, there's not even a plaque. The Tour de France ends there, and there used to be a ferris wheel. Not one word about the bloody mess that occured on that very spot.

I remember that. ****ing hilarious.

similar searches were "even more evil than satan" returning microsofts site as the #1 result, and "miserable failiure" returning george bush and michael moore's biographies as #1 and #2. haha.

Happy Birthday Pilgrim, may Deftones play Coachella in honor of your birthday.

for my birthday, I'd like to have fifteen minutes in a locked cage with the deftones. they're hog-tied, and I have a taser hooked up to the electrical outlet for a washer/dryer combo.
