Happy Bastille Day!

As unbreak_able pointed out to me, today is France's independence day.

Today in 1789, a group of Parisians attacked the Bastille prison in Paris, freed all the prisoners, and razed it to the ground. This particular riot roughly marks the start of the French revolution.

Of course, there was only one prisoner, and that the Marquis de Sade, but it was the principle of the thing, ya know?

Gotta love the French. OK, I've gotta love the French. The rest of you can perhaps respect the fact that they've got the guts to stand up to other people's policies, and go their own way.
