"It was the best of times, .....it was the worst of times........"

It's Quatorze Juillet, Bastille Day, ....or La Fete Nationale as the French prefer to call it.

MAM ponders his future..... No  No  No

Vive la France!

And for those who really want to get in to the spirit of the holiday:

Here's a detailed plan on the Instructables website for building a 1:6 scale guillotine:

https://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-Guillotine/

Or you could buy one:

And then, of course, there are the "museum quality" 1:6 scale replicas:

Honestly? The things some blokes will model!
And he's made many versions of the infernal machine! And in such detail too!

Talk about a morbid fascination....... What a Face What a Face What a Face

Lots of detailed info on that site. Dig around and you can find some really morbid stuff!

For example, I learned that those swell folks in Germany sent as many or more people to the guillotine during the Second World War than they did to the infamous gas chambers. That's a little factoid that doesn't get reported very often. They designed and built "industrial grade" guillotines and put them to work in the towns they occupied. I guess some historical atrocities are too gruesome even to blame on the Nazis.

Oh, and... sorry about derailing the topic with a non-AM pic, but it's the only Bastille Day image I have; or rather, the only Bastille Day images I have feature The Girls rather than, y'know, GI Joe. Embarassed

...and in the spirit of "If you can't beat 'em, then join 'em!" MAM has apparently somehow managed to escape the sharp but fatal kiss of Madame Guillotine and takes a prominent part in the subsequent July Revolution of 1830, by leading the downtrodden population in the pursuit of Liberty!
You didn't think he'd give up his serious gun for an old single shot musket did you?

(With sincere apologies to Mr. Eugène Delacroix for the appropriation of his fine painting! Original shown below.)
