It's that joyous time of year again, Bastille Day on July 14, when French people the world over commemorate that time a couple centuries ago when the Marquis de Sade compelled a bunch of pissed off and rowdy sans-culottes to storm a medieval fortress and prison in Paris, thereby kicking off a defining moment in the French Revolution.
